It goes on the small pins where the power switch connects to. Look in your manual for it's location.

Does it go where it says 'Front Audio Connector' in the manual?

In the manual it says where the 'Front Panel Headers', 'IEEE 1394a', 'USB Headers', and where the 'Fron Audio Connectors' are located. Which one should i put it in?

I don't think so. It should be simply labeled as "speaker" or "spkr" on the motherboard. Look for the pins where the front panel wires connect to on the motherboard. It will be with them.

This is a small black four pin plug with only two wires correct?

Yeah, where the other front panel connectors connect, the pins are all used and they are placed in the right spots.

It's not too important. It's used for the system speaker that beeps when booting up.

I tried to download the manual for your board so i could have a look, but I get an odd file I can't do anything with.

It should be in your motherboard manual or case manual.

It doesnt say where Speaker plugs in to.
EDIT: This is all it lists, 'Front Panel Headers', 'IEEE 1394a', 'USB Headers', and the 'Front Audio Connectors'

I'm guessing that's the case manual? Look in the motherboard manual.

Yeah, im pretty sure.. I followed the motherboard manual, it said exactly where each plug should go (HD_LED +, - , RESET, PWRSW etc.) and the whole set of pins are used up, obviously the one pin is free but its Empty.

It should state in the same section where the speaker connector goes. But then, it may have an onboard speaker. In that case you wouldn't need the case speaker.

So the case speaker is just that beeping noise? i guess i dont need to use it then. Time to install XP! im getting a cpu temp of 44 degrees celsius with an aftermarket cooler when the computer is idle. Does that sound good?

That's a bit on the high side, but from what I gather, the Intels do run a bit hot.
