Hey PCPP peeps, I need some help. Recently I pulled the trigger on my very first build, and the parts relevant here are listed
Power Supply: EVGA G3 550W PSU
Mobo: Asus ROG Strix B350-F
CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken x52 240mm AIO cooler
PSU: EVGA G3 550W Gold+
I've been religiously following the manual, plugging things in as I go. But this is where I'm stumped; my mobo has a 4pin and it says "CHA_FAN1" which I believe means the chassis's fan. It has two other ones labeled CHA_FAN2 and CHA_FAN3. I only have two fans that came with the case, and so that would mean that I have one extra, right? Now, when I go to plug in the two 120mm fans for the AIO that attach to the radiator in the front, I have one fan place left. I looked through the mobo, and I see that there is a place to put the CPU_FAN, and CPU_OPT. Is that where I put my two AIO fan connectors?
Another small issue, if you don't mind: The PSU's SATA cables have 3 connectors each on them, as shown here. For the front, where I put my SSD and Hue+, I can use two, and leave the other one there. In the back, I only have one HDD, and if you put a SATA cable in there, the other ones stick out and is a pain? Any advice or way to take the extra connectors off?
Thanks a lot guys
