I think I messed up. Alienware MB w/different case

Dell Alienware aurora gaming desktop com...

Specs: Windows 10, i7 8700k / 16GB ddr4
So as the title states, i have an Alienware IPCFL-SC mb from an Alienware aurora R7. I was trying to buy a bigger case to put my components into since the Alienware case is crowded and overheating is an issue. Fast forward... disassembled r7 put components into new generic case. Doesn’t turn on. Oh yeah didn’t connect power cable, go to plug it in and it’s this unusual LED connector that’s used... in trying to bypass it, I get it to turn on however now I just get an error saying Alert! Front I/O Cable failure. Can anyone please help me? Do I HAVE to use the Alienware case or is there ANY way to bypass whatever self test it’s failing?

Tell us about the overheating issue. Did you do anything to the original Alienware configuration? Did you add any cards, add or remove any cooling fans, mess with the CPU cooler, etc? Chances are, there was no reason to move your components to a new case.

"Large exhausts also along the top of the machine takes most of the internal space, complimented by a couple of pretty sizable intakes on the right side and at the front, giving it good airflow."
