  1. ok, this is my first build and im having trouble. it seems like the mother board is not getting power. It will not turn on or anything. but when i put the power port into the psu tester all the lights and fans in the case will go on, then when i plug it back into the mobo nothing happens. What could be making this happen if its the mobo i want 2 know fast so i can return it if it is same with cpu
