- you'll note on it that there are pins coming out of the bottom. Those pins get soldered directly onto the PCB - there should be no wires to connect and no confusion about the orientation of the part.
Practice your soldering first if you are at all rusty.

The your mother board manual will inform you that which system panel connector pins are for each system panel wire & will also inform you that which pin is the pin for power & ground.
