Where does the P11 plug on the PSU go on the motherboard?

I've got a replacement motherboard that just arrived in the mail. It's a Gigabyte GA-970a-UD3H.

 

I'm trying to install the PSU into it right now.

 

I've found this weird plug. It's labeled "P11," and it appears to have four holes in it, suggesting it should go on a 4-pin socket on the motherboard

 

Trouble is ... I can't seem to find a 4-pin socket on the motherboard where this thing could possibly go! The user manual doesn't seem to have a chapter for installing a PSU.

 

Here's a overhead view of the otherboard. Anyone feel like going into MS paint and draing a red circle or arrow showing me where this PSU plug is supposed to go?

Probably a Molex connection.. Not connecting to Motherboard but, to another card etc...
It's an auxiliary power connector.

EDIT: Ok, nevermind. I got the machine to finally turn on!

 

All I'm missing now is a CPU, as explained by this thread. However, even without a CPU, I was at least able to get the LED light to come on and get the fans to start spinning. So at the very least, I know I've done everything else correctly up to this point.

 

Tomorrow will be the final stretch. When I get my new CPU in, I hope I'll be able to proudly say that I'm now posting from my newly repair desktop!

 

Wish me luck!
