Hi everyone. so yesterday i helped my friend build his new pc and were having some trouble with the phanteks enthoo pro M tempered glass case. for whatever reason it only came with a hdd led and power switch wire for the front panel to connect to the motherboard, theres no reset switch or power led wire, theres also a sata cable that runs from the front panel for you to connect to your power supply which i dont know anything about. everything is connected properly as far as i can tell but for some reason when we went to turn on the pc by pressing the power button nothing happened. it only powered on when i held down the power button for like 3 seconds, this isnt normal, it should power on with the press of the button. anyone experience this or know what might be wrong? im just worried it might get worse and stop working completely eventually.

Just had this same issue with a case that arrived yesterday and is due out the door this weekend.
The 12v SATA power cable is for the RGB light power. There's no PWRLED because it is a part of the RGB setup. There's no case speaker, and the reset button was replaced by the RGB control. That leaves the HDDLED and the PWRBTN cables.

Initially, the power switch plug going into the socket under the power button was loose, but plugging it back in didn't fix. Next I took off the fan/radiator tray (5 silver screws) and the top panel (about 15 black screws) and pulled off the button assembly. Pressing the button showed no continuity at pins 12 and 13 on the harness. When I took the case button off to reveal the small, round button underneath, it showed continuity when depressing that. Long story short, the clear plastic standoffs attached to the case button are about 1mm too long to allow for a complete button press underneath. Trimming the plastic with a razor blade or sanding the standoffs down slightly will allow for complete engagement of the button. Reverse steps to reinstall the button, top panel, and fan/rad tray.
