    Probably just missed a PSU connection somewhere.

    Do you have two connections to your motherboard? Both the 24pin and the 12vATX connector?

    Did you connect your graphics cards to the PSU (assuming they need a PSU connection, some don't)?

    Did you use the riser pins to separate your motherboard from the case?

    Take out the ram and expansion cards and re-seat them to be sure. In fact, do this with all your connections.

    I have reset everything that could be reset lol there are 3 power plugs on my mobo all three were pluged in im gonna mess with it a bit more to see if i can get this thing to work any other ideas out there i would be happy to hear them.

    well the new case has built in risers as well and 3 screw risers for the right sideof the board i have reset everything and just tried booting with one gpu and one hd no other opticals or pci cards just the nessarys and still nothing....

    aslo this case does not have power led jumpers would this have any effect?

    So you got it to post outside of the case? You may have a short or something in the case.
