Question Phanteks P350x fan not working

Hi,

Recently I bought a PC with a P350x case from Phanteks and everything works except the fan. Based on the manual I connected the Front Panel Audio to the MOBO, the USB 3.0 Panel and Power Switch jumper, then the SATA cable from the PSU to the case. But where and how do I connect the fan? I'm left with a 4-pin D-RGB fan cable that's currenty not connected anywhere (it actually has 3 pins, one of them is taken out by default I assume). It has male pins, but the MOBO also has male pins on CHA/FAN 1-2-3 headers. So how do I go with it? I don't care about the RGB at all, I just want the fan to spin.

MOBO is Asrock B450m Pro4. I tried manually giving the fan a spin to no avail. I really need help with this because right now I'm sitting with the side panel taken off and the only fan that's spinning is the CPU one (Ryzen 5 3600), the GPU fans don't activate till 60C.

Bottom part of the MOBO (Front Panel Audio on the left and the 3-pin M/B DRGB cable next to it). CHA_FAN headers only have male pins, same as the FAN Cable above: View: https://i.imgur.com/2aTW4Ir.jpg

I'm going to try that but I don't think it will help. I don't know much (nothing really) about Case Fans but I think this cable is just for front/side panel RGB and has nothing to do with the fan itself. I will come back tomorrow and let you know.

So these are all the relevant pictures I could think of.



In the last picture I have a extension cable that I thought would be perfect and just what I was looking for but it didn't work Maybe I did something wrong and this is indeed the correct cable? It has a very little arrow and I'm wondering if the arrow has to line up with the arrow on the FAN Cable or it doesn't matter? Either the arrows match but the pins don't, or the pins match but the arrows don't. I don't want to short or break anything so I only tried lining up the arrows not the other way around.

EDIT: Case closed. I'm dumb and didn't realize I'm holding front panel cables after all. There is only one FAN cable and it worked after connecting it to the header on the MOBO.
