[Help] what even is this cable

Does anyone know what cable this tini 8 pin is attached to my HL15 backplane? (image attached) I got a barebones with Cable Set G and there is no reference to this 8-pin in the video guide. there is one 8-pin for each A-D cable bundles coming off the backplane. Thanks!

The 2x4 (8-pin) connector on the left is a sideband connector. It’s used for managed backplanes/enclosures.


Oh, nice. So if I’m not using a rade I don’t need to plug it on anyplace? grand. Thanks pxpunx!

Nope, you can leave it hanging.
