I'm building a new pc with the ASUS TUF B450-PLUS GAMING motherboard and I was wondering if it would support 5 120mm case fans (none rgb) in terms of fan headers to put the power cables for them in. I'm a new builder so I'm not experienced thanks!

Excluding the CPU fan header, your board can support 5 fans individually off the headers. You might want to look into a PWM splitter if all the fans you're looking are PWM. You can then tether the Fan header that the splitter is connceted to ramp up or die down with respect to your CPU temps or system temps. Personally I'd get a PWM hub/splitter and have all case fans connected to it then have the hub powered off the CPU_Fan header so the speed is regulated with CPU temps.
