Alright so I'm doing a big case mod
Ive made a completely new case, and its all coming along swimmingly
BUT whiles it on, if i plug in a controller or an Ethernet cable it shuts off. It will even shut down if their wiggled
I'm thinking it could be a grounding problem, but i have no clue
Has this happened to anyone else?

before you try anything I say I must tell you that I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT CASE MODDING!!

That said, it could be the metal shielding around the bottom of the MOBO. Make sure that you have screwed anything in that goes into the shield from the MOBO.
Also, recheck everything on the PSU. You could have wiggled something loose or short circuited something. You need to triple check the connections on the power socket because I can see that they may be easily loosened when taking the PSU out of the original case.
I hope I was of some help, but this isn't me talking from much experience. I just hope that I might have thought of something you may have overlooked.
Good Luck!!

Thanks for your help!
Ill try it out tomorrow

Anyone else have any know how in this area, because its a big problem
I mean the xbox turns on and runs, but if i giggle the controllers just alittle it shuts down
Same with the Ethernet
I'm wondering if maybe its because i don't have the metal shielding on the bottom?

Sounds like its grounding on something when the mobo is moved or pressed in some areas. try putting rubber spacers on the screws and earthing the shelding or case with a cable to a main earth on the mobo. Check cables and connections for shorts also, esp if you has to ext any cables.

It doesnt matter if you have shelding or not. i dont.
