Rosewill Thor V2 case front panel almost all DOA(?)

To put this simply, I decided to build my first computer not less than a month ago. My case of choice being a Rosewill Thor V2. Overall a really great case. However, I'm having quite a few issues with practically half of the plugs in the front panel.

The headset and mic inputs are extremely fickle. They'll work for a time, and then I'll get a notification from my Realtek Audio HD Manager that I've "unplugged an audio device". Sometimes it will bounce between "plugged" and "unplugged" numerous times within a few seconds. Yet my headset works perfectly plugged into my laptop, or straight into my motherboard.

I've plugged my flash drive into both the USB 2 slots in the front panel, and have yet for it to be picked up through those. However both the USB 3 slots pick it up instantly.

The power button works, and as far as I know both the fan speed adjusters work. No idea about the eSata plug.

Anyone have any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi
make sure that the plugs for headset and mic are pushed fully home on the motherboard,in fact try unplugging them and plugging them back on the M/B it may be slight oxidation on the contacts.

Its the front panel connections that I'm having problems with. And they are pushed all the way home when I plug it in there. =/

Yeah,the front panel connections are connected to the motherboard by wires,trace these from the front panel back to your motherboard and try reseating them.

Pardon the hiatus from the forum. When a get a day off and/or the time to open my comp again, I'll try reseating them.
Thanks. :) 

Really delayed edit: I finally got around to opening my case, and found that my USB cord had somehow come unplugged from my mobo. Stuck it back in its proper place and all USB ports are working fine now. However, I'm still having issues with the mic jack on the front panel. =/
