USB wire colours - which goes where ?

I have replaced a failed GA-8SIML Rev 1.0 motherboard with a new GA-8SIMLFS Rev 2.0   I would like the front USB ports to work but the socket on the cable leading from them is different from the plug on the new board.  I am happy enough to cut the old socket off and solder wires to individual pin housings, but I need to know which wire to put on each pin of the new board.

I have a PDF users guide for the new board, but I can't find one for the old board.  So is there any standard colouring ?  The wires I have are 2 thick black, blue green white black yellow.

I need to identify 2 power, 2 ground, Dy-, Dy+, Dx-, Dx+, and over current

If only I could find manual for the old board.  I did see
http://europe.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard/FileList/Manual/manual_8siml_11_e.pdf 
but that does not match the physical object in my hand.

Thanks
KS.

That's the same document as I posted a URL to in the original question. Like I said there - the board layout is significantly different from the Rev 1.0 board in my hand.

I'm planning on buying some housing sockets today so I should be able to get this working by tomorrow.

Be careful with the polarity of the front

panel USB cable. Please contact your
nearest dealer for optional front panel
