Default Carbide 500r I/O panel wiring burned- help!

Hello,

Recently I bought a 2nd-hand 500r Carbide case.
I built my first PC, & everything worked fine, but then I smelt burning coming from inside the case.

One of the wires (+ or -) part of the fan circuit on the I/O was completely singed, so I instantly disconnected the fans from the PSU.
My PC works fine without the fans because the fans aren't connected to the motherboard.

At first I thought maybe the issue was with the I/O panel, so I ordered a 2nd one, reconnected everything and then when I turned the PC on I smelt burning again. The same wire was singed again.

I've now concluded that the issue is probably to do with my PSU.
I have a Enermax Platimax 1350w PSU.

I'm a noob and sincerely would appreciate all the help I can get.
If anyone here knows the circuit well, please look at the pictures below.
I wrapped the singed wire in a blue casing.

Something isn't being connected properly. Can you show us how you connected those wires to the motherboard?

The fans weren't connected to the motherboard.
They went from the I/O panel to the PSU. I'm starting to think I should just go straight through the motherboard. What do you think?

How the heck did you connect the I/O panel to the PSU?!?
