Default Internal computer speaker question!

Hey, I bought an internal computer speaker to put in my computer, it didnt come with a wire to attach to the motherboard, now I can get plain wires, but, what would I use to attach it to those pins, because I dont have a spare connector like the Reset switch and power switch use. What could i use to make my own little thing to connect it to the pins or where could i buy one of those tiny pieces?

you could use the hard drive LED connectors, or the reset switch connectors, or if you have another case kicking around you could use any of the connectors on there, or you could take it back to the store and get one with wires lol... that would be the best bet... strange that an internal computer speaker would come without wires to attatch it to a computer though.

also, if your not using the case USB wires, you could use those.

I just went into my local shop and asked if they had any of the little motherboard piezo buzzers. All you really need it for is diagnostics so a full speaker isn't really necessary these days. I got mine for free but I think at msot they're a couple of bucks.
Obsolescence is just a lack of imagination.
