    Have a close look at the wiring on the plug that connects the power button to the motherboard, you may find it is different to the original. Does anything show on screen at start up or is it completely blank?

    You could have a Gigawatt power supply on your PC, as long as the voltages are correct, it can do no harm.

    An easy mistake to make, but you are very lucky it didn't fry the board. Glad to hear your problem is resolved.

    Just out of curiosity did you use stand offs when you put the new motherboard into the case?
