Hi.. I am doing my first pc build and have this connector coming from the case panel.

Instructions say it goes to the psu. 

Confused please help?

That's SATA power. I'm assuming it's for a fan hub or some RGB your case might have.

SATA power.

It's the same cable that goes to your hard drive (if you're using any) and might go to your SSD.

 

Looks kind of like this:

Will come on a cable with multiple of these connectors.

I was suspecting that, but the pins length is not same ... sata has 3short-3long-3short-3long ... this one has different.

 

Though maybe its the underside that is on OP image.

... but I'm no expert.

It's simply the male end of a SATA Power, it looks odd because it's the end that's normally attached to a HDD/Optical Drive.
