Default case speaker

on my motherboard there is a place with pins that go like this:

. .. one pin, a space for one (but not one there), then 2 more

In the manual, it says it is for the case speaker. It is not the audio port though.

I have a piece that came with my case. the picture is here:

In the picture it is labeled as case speaker.

Could anyone enlighten me as to what a case speaker is, and tell which way to position it?

On modern motherboards, case speakers are either mounted to the motherboard, or they look like this:

In the old days, they looked like a regular small speaker and they were connected using the same connector. The speaker used to be mounted to the case itself.

If you disable or remove your soundcard(s), the case speaker will take over some functionality (it will beep on errors and dialogues).
