I am not sure where this would go... I saw alot of people in the past making CMOS clear switches. I was wondering where you get the plug that would attach to the pins on the mobo?

Have an old computer case in the attic? That's where I find them. The front light/switch cords fit nicely.

i don't have any cases i am will to cut the connectors off.

its 3 pins so i just cut the end of a fan with a 3pin header on it and use that.

Are they the same spacing? i thought of that but didn't think it would work.

Should be. Back when I made one I used a 3pin fan connector and a toggle I bought from radioshack. What a time saver that was since I would've had to remove the (watercooled) vid cards to reset the CMOS.
