Have you looked at the board itself? A lot of times it'll be marked on the board right by the connector which is positive and negative. I'm no electronics expert but I've never seen a system damaged by getting it backwards though, got a 50/50 chance, if it doesn't light up, reverse it and move on.

reversing it won't wreck the board, it just won't work.   If you put it in backwards.. as said above.. turn it around.

That speaker connection you got listed on the diagram on the right is the PC speaker that's mounted inside the chassis (if it has one), only has two wires with (usually) two "empties" in between. That connection you're showing on the left is for the front panel audio, two rows and keyed, that's a different thing entirely and your board may or may not have that connector.

Edit: This is where that connector goes, if I got the right manual...

If it has onboard sound card, it will have it.

Well..the case has this cable.. and the motherboard the one on my first post.. what can be done ?

Got it.. but where's the right speaker finally ? :|  Antec One Manual

 

If it has onboard sound card, it will have it.

 

So I should leave HD Audio unconnected?

I believe the audio pins are directly under the last PCI slot.  Basically under the bottom left corner.

Some Antec's dont come with a speaker. (My 1200 v3 didn't.) I see no mention of one in that manual, might not have one. You can always get a cheap PC speaker and attach it inside somehow, but it's entirely optional. (Great for hearing a POST beep if it bombs out, but otherwise useless 99.9% of the time.) Your primary audio will be coming from the back of the case on the motherboard or through the HD audio connector above, depending on your sound system.
 

So I should leave HD Audio unconnected?

No, go ahead and connect it, even if you don't use it now you may later, just make sure it's plugged into the HD audio jack and not "halfway" on the PC speaker jack. It'll show as disconnected in the Windows audio control panel if that's what it's running. Won't affect the rear jacks.

If you do not need the front audio port, for a headphone or microphone, leave it off, otherwise, attach it.

I think those PCI cards still have that port, iirc.
