    I'm pretty sure I hooked it up correctly, I was even reading in the books to make sure I wasn't ****ing up and then I hit the power button, **** didn't turn on.

    I thought it was the PSU at 1st, But then I tested it on another computer, It works perfectly.

    So did I connect something wrong or was it DoA? lol

    Check it out

    Check your power button pins arrangement in your mobo manual. Make sure that the earths on your plug line up, there should be a white wire above all the pins outs that are earths. If there isnt your all in one front panel connection needs to be split. I had to do this with my last case, one trip to maplins/radio shack etc depending on country will fix it.
