Alright, read through your motherboard manuel, it should give you a diagram where each of those go, and which is which. + is positive and - is negative, you have to make sure to get those installed correctly, or else the buttons wont work.
at the least you need to get the power button working.

It's frustrating when it doesn't boot up the first time. What I would do is take EVERYTHING apart again, except for the CPU and RAM. Don't even worry about the hard drive, any PCI devices and even the video card for now. You need to get those "+" and "-" cables in properly. The manual as MikeReiner points out, is your friend at this moment. Follow it like your life depends on it. The letters on the motherboard can be hard to read because they're so small, but take your time and move to a well lit area and simply observe what you see, even if you have to use a magnifying glass. Match the wires from the case to the appropriate pins on the motherboard with the manual as your guide.

Oh, don't get static on anything either.
