I've done a similar thing with server fans (their wires are all silly blue and green colours).
Easy way to test, touch one half of the wire to a + 9V battery and the other half of the wire to the - on the battery. Whichever way causes it to light up is the way you wire it. I soldered mine to a correct male end I cut off another component, so try to find a Molex Male end and solder it to the component, then there's no mucking around in future.

Yellow + Black next to Yellow = +12v circuit

The connector you posted a pic of is likely to be +12v on the center rod and ground around the outside. It kind of looks like a standard RCA plug. You might be able to salvage one from AV cable/equipment, solder it to a molex cable, and make yourself a quick connector.
