I have a cooler master td500 mesh white.
Motherboard gigabyte z690 gaming x ddr4
I5 12600kf
16gb ram
1000w psu

My issue, installed cpu on to motherboard and the ram. I have no gpu yet or monitor. I have tried turning it on to see if the case fans kick in and other rgbs light up. The ram rgb lights up but the case fans don't start or light up. Checked the manual and I need to plug it into a socket sys fan. On this mobo it has sys fan 1 2 3 and 4/ pump, so where do you plug the case fans into??

Thanks.

Patience...

You can do nothing useful without a cooler, gpu, and monitor.
The cpu will not start without a cooler.
The cooler will have a cable that needs to be plugged into the cpu fan header.
The motherboard needs to sense rotation to start.
(Do not try just plugging in a fan and no cooler. Your cpu would start and overheat in 2 seconds)

Do a test build on the desk to verify that all your parts are working first.
You could go as far as installing windows.

When all is good, then is the time to move it into your case.

You have no CPU cooler listed so you need to stop cutting the PC on.

Read the manual for the case and motherboard. The case should have a fan hub.
