Hummm, I've been told the black end is the mobo end.  Lemme look at 

And thats rather useless as all 6 connectors on the two 80 wire cables 
in my machine are black, and therefore not CS cables.  So I could very 
possibly be wrong.  And a quick search of the junkyard here did not 
expose a cable with multiple colored connectors.  In any event, its 
very important for those cables which have multiple colored connectors 
that the correct end be plugged into the motherboard.
