    Just imagine a line down the middle of each set, so you can see a solid block of green, next to that is green/white etc...

    It's appears to be labelled for 568-B and 568-A. (Big B on the outside, and what looks like a small A in the middle, just under "CAT5e").

    NB, I can't definitely tell which is orange in that photo - not sure if it's the printing on the part or the photo.

    If you're using B (and you probably are), punch down according to the outer colours.
