Question What's this part that came with my case?

Hi, just a curious question... I got this part that came with my mid atx case. its a ring shape, very dark grey, kinda looks like it would be a magnet or piece of lead. What is that??

well, we can throw lead out of the question, and i doubt it'd be a magnet unless it is a case speaker.

pictures would help like ronco said.

if its a tube sort off about 2cm long then it could be to put round all the wires e.g. power and front led's and then you attach it to the case and it keeps them all together
put like said above pics

It's called a choke, it helps filter unwanted electrical noise.
