Default Wiring Up Case's Reset / Power buttons


I just got a :

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Computer Case - Retail

However, the instructions are pretty bad. There's different color wiring in the case, but, i have no clue which color cooresponds to what on my mobo... (power, reset, usb, audio, etc)

are these standard colors? Can anyone help out?

i had the same problem.. your mobo should have an instruction manual that shows where all of those little plugs go. mine showed where most of them went... the ones it didnt show i kinda guessed a bit

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego
eVGA GeForce 7800GT 256MB
