Compatibility Issues?? Please help!

So I'm in the process of building my first gaming PC. So far, I have the Rosewill Line-M Micro ATX Mini Tower case and a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 motherboard. The website says that this build doesn't have any compatibility issues but I'm having a bit of trouble trying to put this together. I don't know where to plug in the case fans into the motherboard. I would give more details but that's all I really know because I'm really new to this. I tried looking into the manuals but it doesn't help me much. Here's the link to the PC build.

on page 5 of your manual

http://download.gigabyte.asia/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_ga-78lmt-usb3_v.4.1_e.pdf

you connect the fan from the cpu cooler to cpufan which is right over the cpu socket

and connect another fan on SYSfan which is next to the atx 24 connector

Don't connect more than two on sysfan as you shouldn't go over 1 amp on the headers, other fans you connect to the PSU, or fan controller if you want to control their speed.

Where is the PSU located or the fan controller? I don't see it.

the psu is the power supply. You would need to buy a fan controller but just connect all remaining fans to the power supply.
