read your manual. It can difficult to read the diagrams, but that's the only way to do it.

Try summarising your question(s).

Your first post is quite a tricky read.

On the right side of your mobo you should see two little strips going up and down, that have a bunch of pins on them, like shown:

That is where you plug-in the LED, power, etc... As far as the manual goes, go to your motherboard's website, they are bound to have a manual in .pdf format, I know Gigabyte does.

search for tutorials on connecting a fan controller. please don't fall into the trap of calling a computer a cpu. if your gaming you will want an AMD cpu, cheaper and better for gaming. but i am a little confused, your asking for advice on what cpu to get when you seem to already have a motherboard. if you already have a motherboard what is iot and how much will you spend on a processor?

Slick READ THIS....

Find the name and model of your motherboard and go to their website!! I swear there will be manual there telling you everything you need to know! Now I answered your question.
