    Need connection help with case speaker -warning speaker

    I am building a new rig, have an asus p8 77 v pro MB and a Corsair 500 case. Cases now days do not have speakers / buzzers for sounding board warnings etc. (dunno why but ...)

    I ran into this before so I have some little buzzers on hand, but they have two pins for connections, but the mother board has four.

    I don't want to fry my board so need your help.

    The images shows from left to right:

    +5v - ground - ground - speaker

    I know "speaker" is one needed for certain, not sure if ground or +5 is the other, I assume ground but not sure.

    TIA

    The two on the outside are the ones you need to connect. The buzzers should have different colored wires and one should be black, hook that one to the "speaker" connection and the other to the "+5" connection.

    Thanks very much, my guess of speaker and ground was half right!
