    It is the speaker. Plug it in to get the POST-Beeps from your BIOS.
  2. If you read the silkscreening on the connector, it would have made it obvious enough what this thing is supposed to be, lol.
  3. I wanted to know its function however I didn't even thing about post beeps.

    I suppose I should not be too surprised new PC builders do not know about POST beep codes since so few PC cases (if any) include PC speaker these days.

    Can't say I blame PC case manufacturers for that, last time I built a PC with a speaker, I ended up disconnecting it because beeps on every typo and wrong key were driving me nuts.

    Hi :)

    You are correct, most case manufacturers done include them nowdays...

    For my shops we buy them in packs of 100 lol...they are pennies... but we always add them to a custom build...

    All the best Brett :)
