Greetings folks-

Just began building the system which many of you helped me pick out. I'm to the point where I'm trying to connect the Antec Sonata III front panel headers onto my Gigabyte motherboard. The motherboard has positive and negative polarity indicated but the only thing I can find on the header connections is a small triangle pointing to one of the cables. Can't find anything in the manuals. Most of them can just be a trial-by error as I understand, but I would love to have it right the first time.

Thanks for the help!

PS- Has anyone else noticed that a dual-slot video card does not fit very well into the Sonata III case?

The only thing this affects is the lights, and even then if they're the wrong way round it doesn't hurt anything, the lights just don't work. Switches it matters not which way round it goes.
