The pins to be connected to the positive cable are pins 1,2,6,7, while the negative cable is connected to pin numbers 3,4,5,8. The only difference is pin number 5.7 which is inversely proportional to the others, other pins are from positive-negative while number 5.7 is from negative-positive. To make it easier to memorize, use an arrangement like this 1-3 = positive-negative, 2-4 = positive-negative, 5-7 = negative-positive and 6-8 = positive-negative.

From the data above, we can conclude that only pin numbers 5-7 have a different charge from the others, namely negative-positive. Everything else is positive and negative. However, for the Power SW and Reset SW cables, you usually don't need to pay attention to the positives and negatives (turning around is the same and it's okay) but it's good to still pay attention to the position of the positive and negative pins for safety.
