The majority I've come across are 9 pins on a 10 pin header if you know what i mean. I think there the right ones. Be a while since i looked at any mobo usb headers.

The only problems I read read about consistently with that case is that the front panel is flimsy, it's loud, and the only cables you may have a problem with are the audio and USB cables which are located at the very top front of the case.

Using the link provided by hedoe, you may need one of these 12" 10-Pin Internal USB 2.0 Extension Cable

I can't find anything for the audio out cables. Do you even use the front audio out connectors?

Judging from the pics of the case on Newegg, it would appear that the cables are plenty long. They all appear to be able to reach the bottom of the case quite easily. If the top USB and Audio cables are a bit on the short side, simple fix may be to to route them under the motherboard.
