That's a 4pin molex cable for power and is probably from your psu. It's used to power things that use a 4pin molex cable for power. It doesn't connect to your motherboard.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Both the motherboard and the cables themselves should have labels, pwr, res, led, etc.

 

LEDs have + and - terminals, buttons don't, so you can't plug buttons in backwards.

Download the motherboard manual, it shows exactly where they go.  Or look on the motherboard itself, the pins are marked and the words are on the motherboard itself.

 

The other side of those connectors on your finger has the letters identifying what they are.

Are you objecting to reading manuals for a moral or religious reason?

Yeah, it's the same plug that goes into Hard Drives and SSDs, etc.
