    Z87 Sabertooth won't boot after case change

    Moved Motherboard to new case (no boot) Probably shorting to case
    Removed from case and connected: 24 pin +8pincpu cables (booted) so placed back in case (no boot)
    Removed from case and started to get intermittent boot.
    Now does not boot at all
    Tried another working PSU same result
    Both PSU's are getting Power to the Motherboard (Green standby light on motherboard is On)

    That's an awesome motherboard.
    It has protections listed in the specifications.
    Moving a board can change a seat.
    You could pull your memory and seat them firmly.
    Even if they seem firm, a re seat may be necessary.
    Also, if you have more than one memory module, try removing and re seat one at a time.

    You could also clear the CMOS.
    Also suggest pulling power and reset plugs and boot using onboard button.
    Recheck polarity.

    Remove any cards to debug from scratch. Test to determine if you can enter bios.
    If yes, reset to default when in, then restore to your preference.

    good luck

    I can't believe what the problem was.
    I was going to clear the CMOS and noticed that the Jumper was missing.
    Replaced the Jumper and now it boots.
