Hello. 
Im back with another beginner question. I’m setting up a test bench to see if everything boots. I’m wondering how to power the cpu cooler, does it draw power from the 24 pin or what do I need to plug in to get the fans power? My cpu cooler is a Corsair h60, so I need two 4 pins connections, one for radiator and one for fan. I’m using an evga z370 ftw motherboard and evga 850 g3 gold psu.

It uses SATA power from your PSU:

Looks a bit like this, flat with an 'L' shape.

 

And it needs the two CPU PWM headers on your motherboard.

One for the pump (which sits on the CPU) and the other for the fan on the radiator.

So I just plug in the SATA cables into the “intel SATA 6g ports” and then connect the fan and radiator to the cpu pwm like above?
