Sorry for the delay in response.

From the view you've given starting from the left going to the right.

Active - The Brown (or Red) wire
Earth - The Green & Yellow (or just Yellow) wire (very important)
Neutral - The Blue (or Black) wire
-------------------------------------------------------

Something to remember! the only pin you need to get right is the earth. Even if you accidentally crossed the Active and Neutral wires it would work as you are dealing with an Alternating Current (AC power), however best practice is to follow my guide above. Again as I've advised in the past if unsure seek assistance.

Thanks alot now I just got to find a right angle plug and can finally finish this thing. One more question if you don't mind. How much space do you have from the back of your power supply to the back of your case? I think I may have mounted mine a little too close.

Space is dependent on the size of your PSU. I'm using a 1220W PSU (180mm long) and needed every spare millimeter I could find so I'm 45mm (or 1 3/4 Inches in your speak) from the rear which was just enough to get past the chassis bolts. Currently a very precise fit.

When I had a standard PSU which normally measures 150mm x 150mm I would have been something like 55mm+ from the back, this also allows for any changes in cable management later on.

hope that helps.
