You should be able to just split the connector from the case in two and use the two outer pins on the motherboard, the forward one being - the aft +. If that is not the issue here is a good guide to follow http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-ste...

Yep, downloaded your motherboard manual and confirmed it. The power switch pinout is 2-pin and the power LED is 3-pin. You are trying to connect to the wrong pinout on the motherboard.
