OK, so after installing the PSU and before doing cable management, the system would power up, but after cable management it would not power up. I'm assuming this was after the side panel was replaced? Is the PSU modular? Did you have to unplug any of the cables to do the cable management? If everything is plugged in to the correct sockets and the cables are seated properly, offhand I'm wondering if somehow in the process of cable management a wire in a cable was damaged or came loose from a plug. Also a remote possibility that in unplugging/re-plugging the cables, a socket could have somehow been damaged or it's connection to the motherboard cracked or broke if motherboard happened to flex. BTW, was this in an ATX/mATX case or an ITX case (the latter, my experience has been that cable management is much harder and can place stresses on cables and sockets if side panels are pressing on them.
