Post a picture if the port
 
Did you put the add in case rear IO shield and also leave the stock back plate attached to the motherboard, if so that is your problem

What a muppet I am pmsl, but as you said easy fix, sometimes you just cannot see what you have done wrong, we live and learn tbh did not even enter my thoughts about removing internal io plate and I have been building systems for years, we can all make stupid mistakes I had a good giggle about it thou, cheers

don't use the io back plate just use the motherboard back cover and install it to the case it will do the trick
