Default Motherboard

I had to purchase a new motherboard for my computer because i believe i fried my old motherboard. So i purchased the MSI p965Neo-F V2. When i got home, I took out my old motherboard, and screwed in my new one. I attached most of the cables to the board, but i wasnt sure where all the led case lights, power button and reset button go. But what i realised is that this piece was lying on the floor, i dont know what it is. Does anyone here know what it is?

Default Re: Motherboard

It's the motherboard or internal speaker. It helps in diagnosing BIOS errors, or if something is wrong, it will beep. It's not necessary to install, but it's a good idea to.

I got my system to boot, but its is laggy as ****. Could this be cause due to not enought/ to much thermal paste? Or the heasink not being properly attached? because mine has 1 broken clip making it not perfect.
