X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING

There are plenty of 4 pin headers but the front and rear fans need 3 pin headers and I have scanned this MOBO for 10 minutes and cannot locate any 3 pin headers...please help??

There should be a piece of plastic on one side of the header that matches the fan connection. I wouldn't be sure as each motherboard lays them out differently but the plastic guide should be there for the fan header.

As stated above the 3 pin fan connectors will only fit into the 4 pin headers in one way.
The 4 pin headers have a tab to ensure that you connect a 3 pin fan the correct way.
Look at the bottom right picture here:

THANK YOU as well, you are a gentleman and a scholar!

This is the fastest and most verbose answer to a hardware question I've experience since 1996!
