It is the speaker. Plug it in to get the POST-Beeps from your BIOS.

If you read the silkscreening on the connector, it would have made it obvious enough what this thing is supposed to be, lol.

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 :)
