Hi, I am building my first gaming PC. I have two fan cables I need to connect. One of them is from the case, which I heard goes to the motherboard. The second one is my graphics card fan. The graphic card I have is a ASUS ROG Strix Raedeon RX 5700 Overclocked Triple Fan. My motherboard is a PRIME X470-Pro AM4 ATX AMD. My power supply is a EVGA SuperNOVA G3 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX. Please help, I don't know where to connect these two fans.

It is a 3 pin connector, and all the cables from my power supply don't allow me to connect it. I've been reading and supposedly you can connect your gpu fan cable to your gpu? I've also been reading that I might need a Molex adapter?

Can you photo gpu and draw full name of it?

I don't think any GPU have cables for fan to the motherboard... Usually, GPU fan is plugged on the GPU's PCB itself. you just need to slot the GPU into a PCIe slot, then put the 8 pin power connector to the GPU, and done.

also, what case do you own? you can slot a 3 pin fan header to 4 pin fan header in your motherboard and it will run, but note that it will not have a PWM feature since it's a 3 pin.

Tell me a name from your GPU

I have a NZXT H510 Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower.

I am just still having trouble with the GPU fan cable. I'm sorry for being such a noobie ):

So I need to take apart the GPU? If I am not mistaken, what you're trying to say is that I connect that cable to the GPU itself?
Did you see where is position from fan connector on the gpu board and plug in this connector. Then that its.

No. the fan header on GPU board should've put together at the start by the company. don't take your GPU apart as that may null your warranty. If ASUS by any chance forget to plug it in, then RMA it.
Only plug original gpu fan cable in original power connector on gpu board.
