How do you know the order of the wires when placing the 4 wires back onto the motherboard?

The connector is a snap in / snap out or more properly lift out connector. The connector goes back in only one way with the 4 pins aimed towards the wifi icon. To get it out you GENTLY lift the wires. I used my fingernail under the wires as they went from the fan into the connector.
