What is the moboard model number? Manual will show what it is.

I can help you find the manual with the model number.

That is a standard Molex connector. Does the motherboard manual explain its purpose? What is the full model number (including revision, if any) of your motherboard?

If you don't know your specs of motherboard you can use CPU-Z to find it:
CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
or Speccy: Speccy - System Information - Free Download

Just a guess but it's probably there to power a floppy drive

That's a nice if odd place for a added molex on the mobo. Likely it won't be needed and I like to keep as much voltage of the board if possible using the PSU as much as humanly possible for these types of connections .....just me.
