Can't find the CMOS jumper for my motherboard

I currently need to reset the CMOS memory for my motherboard as I accidentally messed up my BIOS settings. I googled how to clear the CMOS, and apparently you need to plug a CMOS jumper onto the 2 pins labelled 'CLR_CMOS' on the motherboard.

I have located the 'CLR_CMOS' section of my motherboard, but the problem is I cannot find the CMOS jumper needed to perform the task. Does anyone know where I can find it, or if I purchase one?

My motherboard is a Gigabyte H81M S2PH.

    You just need to short the two pins, use a screwdriver or anything steel. You can also clear the CMOS by removing the battery for several minutes while the system is unplugged from power.

  2. You can use a flat blade screwdriver to connect the two pins for about 30 seconds. Be sure the power supply is disconnected from the wall outlet.
