Yup, I'm a noob and I'm freakin' out. Been stressed out lately, and for the love of god I can't find a video or website that explains in detail where the cords go, plenty of how to screw in the fan over the CPU with thermal paste, which I've already done. There's 1 cord from the heat dispersing bars and 2 cords from the actual fan, and 2 separate connector cords that come in a baggie. Got everything else figured out, this one stupid thing is holding me back. Help! Edit: the mobo is an MSI Tomahawk B450 ATX. Please keep throwing all your answers at me, I will update you when I've figured it out. Had to go to bed for early schedule for now. Thank you very kindly.
