When connecting the switch leads to the MB (ie power led, power sw etc.) does it matter which way round they go? Does the lettering on the plugs face in or out?

Switches don't matter.

LEDs should (apparently) but i've never got one the "wrong" way round...

If you connect the LED the wrong way round it will not light, but no damage will be caused. The LED is a diode and will just block current if reverse connected.

AH
