PSU is acceptable quality.
What do you actually mean saying "case does not get power"? So what exactly there are on "case" that needs power except water cooler? To put it in another way: what else than water cooler is not working?

Oh well. That sounds very strange. I would try plugging case into PSU wire that surely works. So if you have something that works plugged into spesific PSU connector and case accepts same connector, try that.
It's also possible some connections are messed up or water pump (or something else) is causing some kind of short circuit situation.

I presume the water pump is powered by the CPU fan header normally? You can test whether the header is working either with a meter (carefully - do not short out the pins) or by substitution - connecting another fan (any old 3 or 4 pin case fan will do) to the header and seeing if it works. If I'm reading it correctly you've already connected the water cooler directly to the power supply and it didn't work that way either. So it may be a reasonable assumption that the water cooler is dead, and you might want to replace it. You don't have to replace it with another AIO cooler, air coolers can perform just as well unless you're talking really large AIO's with double/triple size radiators. Which replacement will depend on whether your processor is overclocked etc.

1. If pin is bent, without bending it back it would not work.
2. That's probably just eSATA port, you need eSATA device for that and also power supply to HDD as eSATA does not include power delivery. That makes eSATA pretty much pointless as USB 3.0 can handle almost same and still offer 4.5 watts of power.

4 SATA devices unless you use USB-SATA adapater or PCIe SATA card or something else that gives more SATA connectors.
Picture from "big pin cable"? USB connector that goes into motherboard header has 20 pins.

You should have at least two USB 3.0 ports on front via motherboard header. Question is do you have real use for USB 2.0 ports.
I doubt you get much advantage from water cooler.
