I bought this case
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005869A7K/ref=oh_deta...


My problem is, the front panel connectors do not have any positive or negative print on the plastic, nor do they have any colored wires, everything is totally black and just says what it is on it without any sign at all of + or -

checked my case manual and it says nothing about any sings of how to tell which side is which.

Any clue on what i should do?

if you're referring to the power and hdd leds etc. i have a different case, however when connecting them, make sure the writing on them is pointing the opposite way of each other.
usb headers will only go one way, and front panel audio is usually below the 3.5mm jacks on the i/o panel.

that's a bit strange from nzxt, they usually do extremely good cases, inside and out.

Some say that the writing on the connectors should face the outer edge of the board

Polarity doesn't matter to switches, they'll work either way
Leds won't if polarity is reversed
