Thermaltake level 10 GT problems (No HDD detected, fans + controls not working)

Hello, I spent today working on the computer I am building using a 2600k processor with Asus p8p67 motherboard, two SATA 6GB 1TB storage HDD, and a 120 gig SSD by crucial in a thermaltake level 10 GT case. Everything is running with a few exceptions that I attribute to this wonky case! The documentation for this case is completely abysmal and despite having built several systems before I am stuck.
Basically, when I start the computer it detects no HDD and the top and side fan do not start as well as the case's fan control on the top do not light up or work. This case features some 'hot-swappable' drive bays where I have installed my drives. I've made sure to connect on the back the power to the strip going to each of the swappable bays (I also tried by connecting a standard connection to each bay) as well as using a SATA cable for each bay. None of these has resulted in a working computer. I desperately wish to just have a standard connection rather than this garbage, but can anyone help me figure out what is wrong? As for the fans, I have no idea. I followed the terrible instructions but it isn't working. (It just has some cryptic diagram of 4 connections going into who knows what)

Same problem. It wont detect my hard drives. Neither in the Bios nor in the OS installation.

I have checked all cables are connected. So why is it not detecting the hard drives???
