Hi there, I have been trying to find out what this specific plug on my motherboard is for. If you look on the picture of the board from the left is the 3 pci slot, then the 3 PCIe slots, a little yellow then next to that it what Im curious about. Does anybody know what this is for? It looks like I could plug a power plug into it, but dont want to try.

Thanks for any help

yep you should connect it. I think your manual describe it. Maybe you need to read it again thoroughly.

I had a look through the manual again, but no mention of what this is for. I went ahead and plugged it in anyway. I dont seem to see any change or difference to performance.

Anyways
Thanks for your help

Thanks guys for your help, I really appreciate it. I have a 7600gs only a mid range card, and only running one.

But cool now I at least know what that is for.
