With the way the case is made you have to go with a dell motherboard for your power cable ...ect. to hook up right. Unless you want to buy new wire and run them yourself. Also you have to make sure you get a BTX board.

My Dell Dimension 5000 is stuck with a solid amber light on the power switch and solid amber light on the motherboard. Switch 'clicks' ok but light only goes out when power lead removed. No fan, no bleeps, no bootup, just solid lights. The 5000 doesn't have other LED lights to assist. The PC got into this state after local power cut, when power returned.
