Make sure you are putting the front usb header connector on the proper USB pin connection on the motherboard. You should see nine pins in 2 rows together. Check the manual that came with the motherboard to find the correct pins location.

For motherboard without parallel port: please check the farthest PCI slot from the center of the board, which is also the closest to the edge of the board. A white sticker with motherboard serial number is attached to the PCI slot.
It includes one letter +five numbers + one letter + eight numbers as follows.

Pluging in extra usb ports/Mic and headphone jacks from the tower

Answer me this. You're case is an Antec tower? The motherboard is the Asus P4P800 SE ? Is this correct?
If you have you're manual you can see what goes where on the board for front panel connector page. 2-31. (This diagram shows you how to connect the front mic & speaker).
To connect the Antec's front USB ports plug the case USB front connectors onto USB56 & USB78 shown on page. 2-30. Most case wires are already set within their USB connectors & the Antec's front USB connector should fit right on the mother board's pin's. If you need you're user manual, download from Asus by clicking on this link.

Good Luck!
