I know it's a lot of trouble, but hook up the bare-bones outside the case (ie. on the mobo box). It's SOP for me now..after spending hours trying to figure out WTF was going on with a new build. I try and test "outside" the box or in a known working machine. Saved countless hours of BS
Yeah this was our next step, it was just very late when we finished yesterday so we postponed it to today^^ I just wondered about this mysterious cable that even Google can't seem to find
And thanks for the advice, it indeed makes much more sense I will start my next build barebones first

Double- and triple-check that everything is seated correctly on the motherboard, that all required power connectors are in, that the PSU is actually on and plugged in a working outlet.... Everytime this happened to me I had forgotten something obvious.
Well I know that feeling that's why I always build PCs together with a close friend of mine as each of us alone made countless "D'oh!" mistakes over time though this time all is looking good except the grounding, heck I'm not even sure the case is grounded in the state it is now
