Question Gigabyte B450 ds3h - how to connect fans?

Hey

Recently, I tried to build a cheap gaming pc for a friend. The motherboard is B450 ds3h and the case is Aerocool Hive with 2 front fans and one on the back (all rgb). As shown in the pictures, the reset button connector is connected to GDV cable and I don't know where it goes.
All the fan cables are connected together but the pin does not seem to fit anywhere either.
Is it even possible with this motherboard?

That's not a fan connector, that's an ARGB connector. Your motherboard doesn't have an ARGB header but it does have an RGB header, they are not compatible with each other. You should look into replacing the motherboard with one that has an ARGB header or pick up a ARGB controller.

On second viewing, can you give us another picture of the SATA powered controller that the fans are tethered to?

My friend managed to connect the SATA fan cable to one of the PSU cables (picture 3). Will that work?
Also, you mentioned ARGB controller. Does it also come with a SATA header?

Can you provide an image of the PCB that's tethered to the trailing SATA power connector(not the PSU end, the one that's on the chassis)...? It should be an elongated controller of sorts.
I believe all the chassis cables are in the first three pictures in the first post unless you need a closer look at those. Sorry if I didn't understand the question. I'm still pretty green when it comes to the terminology.

Let's make this easier for you...make a video of what you got with the case(not the items that you used to build in the case), i.e, motherboard, GPU, cooler and storage. If the images had what I was asking for, I wouldn't be asking it at this point. The controller you will need to identify should look something like this or this.
