I am installing a new mobo (+ CPU, RAM). From each of the optical drives (DVD, CD) there is a 3 wire cable (red white black) with a 4 pin plug. Where do these 4 pin plugs connect to the mobo, and/or what is their purpose? (I have connected the flat ribbon cable to the mb.)

mb = ASUS M4A88TD-M

The cable would be for sound. Not needed on todays motherboards.

Thanks. I had an idea it was not needed but wanted confirmation.
