Connecting issue with my cooling system and my mother board it has a 3 pin connector and I have read on others post that there is a 4 pin connector next to the LED status header that accepts 3 pin connections but there is no such connection listed in any of the manuals. It might mean the one that is next to what is labeled Q LED but I am unsure and this has stumped my first build for hours now. Any help is greatly appreciated

Are you asking about motor connection or for lights ?
For motor you can plug it in 4pin header, just set for Voltage and not PWM adjustment in BIOS.

I believe so the cord comes directly out of the cooler that has been mounted on the cpu so I don’t think it’s for lights but the manuals aren’t really telling me what each. Cord is for. And thank you for you guidance I appreciate it.
