Default power plugs

my case has little 1 pin power connecters.. i guess there for led lights and stuff like that. do thos plugs go into the MObo? it doesnt seem like the mobo has anywhere near that many sockets. the mobo has main ones for Usb, harddrive, videocard and CPu power. but nothing so small

1 pin?
Is it the case or the PSU ?
Are they black??
If they are black then they usually indicate they are ground\0 leads.
If so, then connect them to any open ground (GND) lead on your mobo.

ok ive figured out where they go but i need to know something else. how do i know which way to plug them in? i guess it doesnt matter with the 1 pin leads, but theres some with 4 pins. they can go in 2 ways.. and since each of the 4 pins has a different function, how do i know which way to plug them in?
