Did you plug the power button connector to the correct header and not the reset header? It happens to the best of us.

Honestly the only thing In my mind is that maybe you didn't connect the positive and negative connectors ( the one pin connectors (always forget their name lol ) ) correctly

Well from this pic it seems you misplaced the cable it seems that the power button pins are those in the red circle and you connected your power cable with the pins on the blue circle ... :P 

 

Read the manual on where the pins should go next time and be more careful on where you put what :) 

 

Also the most important part of this topic is missing... the motherboard name and model  but that's just feedback for the next time you post...

Actually I was half wrong... you did connect the cables wrong but the power cable shouldnt go there and this is why you need to mention motherboard brand and model but you are lucky that I could identify your mobos name and model by the looks of it and googled its manual this is how you should connect it (the red smearing is where you should put your case's power cable)

Actually the correct way is to use all four pins on the top row with the Power LED header to the left and the Power Switch header to the right.

On the bottom row with 5 pins you use the HDD LED header to the left and the Reset header to the right, leaving the center pin unused BUT since it is also a ground you can hook up the power header as shown above and it will still work fine.
Just make sure the + side of it is towards the top to get it right but honestly it doesn't matter, the PC's power switch in the case is just an instant On-Off switch with no actual polarity, works either way.

 

Look at the way the diagram shows them in the above post. 😉

Thanks for the tip, and yeah, should have included what mobo i had. 

Buut, i have done this and still nothing happens..  the RGB strip on the mobo lights up and the hearshield next to cpu cooler (with rog logo) gets pretty hot after having psu on for a couple on mins15895836160173418567965964323240.thumb.jpg.0434bdbcb26bf10ad50b0461a3fcd7de.jpg
