It's shorting in the case somehow. Took everything out and was able to get into post and everything. Carefully put everything back in viola! Complete system hang!

Does anyone know what these slightly longer standoffs would be for?

I have always used those little cloth washers on the motherboard. Could those be causing a problem?

SO FRUSTRATING....
I haven't done a build with that case so I'm only going on general knowledge (hopefully somebody who's used the case will pipe in). Are there any recessed mounting screwpoints on the motherboard case (punched down)? That would be the only type of config that would automatically suggest a slightly longer screw.

As far as the insulators go... I haven't used one of those in years, and consider it to be a case ground point at this stage.
