    That's only important for the lights. If they don't turn on you have them backwards. Doesn't hurt anything as the leds (diodes) in the case won't conduct in reverse polarity, so they won't short out anything.

    The coloured lead is positive while the white lead is negative, as said it only matters with leds.

    after having a quick search round on a few reviews of your board i managed to find a good pic of the front panel conectors in mention. There is practically microscopic writing describing the positive and negative pins and whats ping do what power, reset, led ect
