    Default Case power switch not working with new GA-z87x-UD5H

    I recently replaced the motherboard, CPU, and hard drive in a 3 year old computer case I had (Velocity Micro mid-case). After resolving a BIOS issue (thanks to these forums) I only have one remaining issue, my Case power switch will not work to turn computer on/off. I have to use the power switch on the MB. I have tried using a screwdriver on the Power switch pins to see if it is a problem with the two wires coming from my power switch with no success. Do I need to have a power switch which fits on all 3 pins on the power switch (+/ 2 - LEDs) or is there a problem with the MB? Everything else is working great, I just don't want to have to reach into the case to turn the computer on/off.

    Thanks,
    Don

    Current setup is:


    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H Z87

    CPU: Intel i5-4670k

    Hard drive: SSD - Corsair Neutron Series GTX 2.5-Inch 240GB

    Power supply: Thermaltake 850W SP-850 AH3CCB (3 months old has been working well)
    Network Card: Trendnet TEW 641 pc Wireless N card

    You just need to short the two pins together on the front panel header for the power switch. Look on page 29 of the motherboard manual and make sure you have the front panel header wired correctly.
    Might not be making good contact, might be plugged into wrong pins, bad switch, etc.
