I hear what you're saying - most importantly, make sure you connect the SPEAKER, POWER SW, RESET, HDD LED and POWER LED firstly (like Mr Alpha said), coz they are the important ones.
I had the same dramas with my Gigabyte MB. The USB cables for the front panel are broken down into each separate connection pin(s).
Go to page 1-24 (Chapter 1) (or Page 34 of 88). The three blue connectors (without the shroud) identified in the diagram are your USB connections. The one with the shroud is your Com port. Now in the diagram (to the right) it shows what each pin means for example :
USB+5V, USB+5V, USB_P7-, USB_P8-, USB_P7+, USB_P8+, GND, GND and NC.
For the connections you have from the case front panel to these connections, it equates as follows:
VCC = USB+5V (Doesn't matter which)
USB2- = USB_P8-
USB2+ = USB_P8+
USB1- = USB_7-
USB1+ = USB_7+
GND = GND (Doesn't matter which)
The 1 and 2 represent each of the USB connections on the front panel (am I right that there is two USB holes?) so they have just broken the plugs down. It is fiddley, but all you need to do is plug each one onto the correct pin (as above)
Good luck, and I hope that helps....
