Turn the cables around. They have positive and negative sides. YOu need to just turn them around and make sure they are aligned on the exact pins they should be on. Try that.

Possibly.. then again, you should really just check those connections. Besides that.. Sony's cases are ugly, but oh well!

The problem is that you are running into the proprietary issues that associate from trying to convert branded components to off the self items. You would be better off geting a new case that the new mobo will work with.
