I have an EVGA nForce 790i Ultra SLI motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188025 that I'm trying to put in a Dell Studio XPS 9100/435 case. The MB light comes on and the case power button light comes on. When i press the button, nothing happens (fans don't turn). I have one extra 2pin connector that has a red & white wire and I'm unable to tell where it goes on the MB. Is this MB compatible with this case?

Thanks for the help!

Dell stuff is proprietary ie made to dell's specs and NOT industry standard specs. While you can sometimes get a standard type mb to fit a dell case, you usually have to do at least some engineering to make it work.

In short if you are going to use a standard mb [which you may have already fried by attempting to use a dell case] get a regular atx type case.

At this point, I would pull the board out of the case and attempt an out of the case build to see if you damaged the board.
