Default AC Power connections for Antec case

I'm replacing the power supply on an Antec Aria case with a replacement
power supply shipped from Antec. Replacing it requires unplugging the power
supply from the rear AC outlet connector on the case. There are 3 leads-
black, white, and green/yellow. When unplugging the old one, the leads were
green/yellow on the bottom, black on the left, and white on the right
(looking at it from the rear). The new one was shipped from the factory with
the power leads plugged in (have to be disconnected to install), with the
green/yellow and the white reversed, so that white is on the bottom. Am I
correct in thinking that green/yellow is ground and should be on the bottom,
Neutral is white, and black is Positive? If so, the following should be
correct?


O -white O - black

O - green/yellow

Thanks,
Fitz

Per accepted USA wiring code for 120VAC, Black is HOT, WHITE is
NEUTRAL, and GREEN is GROUND.

I would match the colors per your original connections. I looks to me
like someone made an incorrect connection with your replacement unit.

In other words, I agree that you are correct.
