That was for the VRM's (voltage regulator Module) but you dont need to worry about that. As far as I recall the E30 doesnt even use VRM's, they just reused the power supply from the e20 since they were good ones. If you take the side cover off yours you should be able to spot it real quick.

Definitely no vrm or power connector there. You have a standard 4 pin cpu power and 24pin motherbd; as long as the PSU fits then you wont have a problem.

You can see the vrm power connector in this pis just below the rear backplane

Thank you popatim for you time.now here is pic of motherboard


Can you see enough space for Card(gtx 660or R9 270) because i am afraid it will hit that tiny heatsink placed on some kind of chip.you can see it under RAM in silver colour.
