Sorry for the delay,

According to your motherboard's manual (page 12/66) two USB 2.0 slots are located on the right side of the mobo, above the SATA ports and below the 24-pin ATX. The USB 3.0 port is right above them.

Your controller's USB would go into one of the USB 2.0 slots, however this is only necessary if you want to control the RGB through a software. It seems that you most likely need both a micro-USB cable and a USB adapter (USB 2.0 10-pin header to USB female, something like this). Not sure if the micro-USB is included in the fan pack.

However, if you just want to control the RGB with the controller itself, you can skip the USB connections altogether.

The cables with the mobo manufacturer names (MSI, Gigabyte etc.) can also be ignored, as you don't have an ARGB header on the motherboard.

Power is a standard SATA connection directly to your PSU.

The fan control cable, if you want to control the speed through PWM (highly recommended), will plug into the fan header next to your motherboard's CMOS battery. The header is on the lower left side of it, labeled CHA_FAN1. The other fan header, on the bottom of the mobo, is only a 3-pin header and wont work for PWM.

This handy little video should help you out and covers most of the things I said above. Hope it helps!

There does not appear to be any dedicated RGB/LED spots on the board, however some LED controllers, like the Corsair Commander Pro, utilize the motherboard's USB 2.0 slot and can be controlled through software
