Power input (plugs) for the mother board

How does one know which power input plug goes where on the mother board if the board does not in any way indicate which one to put where??? The plugs are marked P8 and P9 and are both identical in shape and size.... The motherboard does not indicate where to plug it into. The mother board has one long socket that accomodates both of the two plugs (side by side).
I thought I had it correct and started the computer - only to discover that it was not booting and no video was present. I may had it wrong and may have destroyed the mother board..... I just do not know at this point.
I know the system was working correct before I moved all of the components to a new case.
Please advise.
Thanks,
Chinman
