They're IDE connectors. They're the old connectors for CD/DVD drives and HDDs that used IDE cables to connect to the motherboard. They're now obsolete having been replaced by SATA.

 

The motherboard and computer it comes from is more than 15 years old. It's worthless.

Looks like they are IDE connectors for hard drives of that era. The one below it looks like a floppy connector.

GX260s are awesome machines. They're IDE connectors, one for the floppy, optical drive and HDD.

I once did the unthinkable, back many headphones ago...

I split an audio split, again

I actually need to pick up one of these, I've got AGP cards that I cannot use at all. Also, is that a 20-pin power connector?

More like loud ovens. Well.. the thin ones at least

I'd blame it practically being an oven, the airflow is fully negative xD
