it's in your motherboard manual, if you lost it, you can download a pdf version on xfx website.

the color wire is the positive, the - will be the black or the white. like the hd is usally red and black, so the red is the +, no you will not burn the board if you reverse the wire of the led.

give us the color if you not sure.

shut donw the computer when you plug it, sometime, the surge create by the hot plug in of a led will burn it.

lmao I meant like
on the diagram of the board it shows arrow and for example a number 9.

and then it tells u what each number is
9 - CPU

but we would have to be in the space age for that lol

And yes you were right, the colored is Positive and White is Negative same with the arrow is on the positive for me.
