The negative side is usually the white or black wire...or in the case of two colored wired...the one with the stripe. Pg 2-14 in your motherboard manual

what case do you have? I've never seen a case with other than single or 2 pin connectors ?
Maybe put the power LED on JFP2, pins 1, 3, and 5 ....then ?
