It's a cable to connect your case's USB type C connector to your motherboard.

If your motherboard has this connector (which not a lot do), then it will be found here:

Just below the 24 pin ATX/RAM slots.

If your motherboard does not have this connection, you have three choices:

1. Get a motherboard that does have this connector

2. Forget about the USB type C and just leave the cable not connected

3. Get an adapter that turns a USB 3.0 header into a type C header, like the Silverstone CP14.

Your motherboard indeed does not have the appropriate connector, so you have to make one of these choices:

The Z390-E does have this connector, for reference. Seems pretty similar otherwise.
