I need help with my M.2 heatsink

i may have posted in the wrong section but i just created my account and still learning the site, but i recently purchased a 970 evo for my asus Z97-k mobo, which i bought used and didnt have a heatsink so i bought a rgb one. i figured out how to put the heatsink on, but have no clue where to hook up the rgb. I'm still learning so I'm not even sure if it has a rgb header cus I've been looking and googling trying to find out where it is but only find that some do have a rgb header but possibly not all? any help would be greatly appreciated

That board does not have an RGB header. You're going to have to purchase a separate RGB controller to take advantage of the RGB functionality of that heatsink.
