    So I have a commander-msi snow edition and it has a ground pin and I don’t know where to plug it in in my Gigabyte B250M-DS3H motherboard because there simply isn’t a place to put the control according to the manual. Could anyone help with this I don’t want to waste any hardware and do I need it? I have all the other pins in the right spots too btw

    Not sure what you mean by 'pins', do you mean the stand-offs that go between the motherboard and the case ?

    That actually looks like a USB cable for a front panel USB connector. Power/ground and data +/-.

    I did some research and it is a USB 2.0 connector. Referring to your picture in post #3 it should be connected to the 4 pins with the top pin missing, to the right of label F_USB1 and to the right of the 5 pins, with the Red lead at the bottom.

    And thank you Mark for spotting it was a USB connector first. (y)
