B650E-F cable location

Hi again.
I've purchased all the components for my apart from the graphics card and have started the build.
I've gone with the Asus ROG Strix B650E-F mb and the montech king 95 pro case.. I have three cables I'm struggling to find the location on the mb for.
The 1st is marked F. Panel
The 2nd and 3rd come from the side of the onboard rgb hub.
I attach a layout of the mb and pictures of each of the cable plugs.
Again all advice is greatly appreciated.

Hello friend, using the manual as a guide, I will go in order of your pictures. First of all, be sure to check out this guy's channel on YouTube. He has excellent step by step PC build guides, including one for your specific case: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrhobfJKcYo

First Image: 17 -System Panel Header. Install this in the left most section of this header. Newer cases combine all of the Front Panel connectors for ease of use. This is for your power button, reset button, and in some cases (but not all) a HDD indicator light. Note that not all pin will be covered on this port when you plug this in, and that fine, just make sure you plug it in on the left-most side of this connection no. 17 from the manual.

Second image: 11 - Addressable Gen 2 Headers. This is typically for any RGB device you might have. IMPORTANT NOTE: Make you plug this cable only into this port (you should have a few of them on the motherboard. There is another type of RBG plug with 4 pins, but this one only has 3.

Third image: 4 - Fan and Pump header. I am not sure which device this goes to since I can only see the connector, but that is a 4-Pin PWM cable for AIO pumps and Fans. Depending on what device this is, you will need to plug it into item 4 as per the Motherboard manual.

Great to hear, enjoy the build! I actually run the same motherboard, it's been really great.

Up and running, windows installed and updates done.

I've paired it with 

Ryzen 7 7800X3D 

GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER 

32gb 6000 gskill ram

2TB Crucial T500 ssd

2TB solidigm P44 pro ssd

It's going to be used for sim racing. Possibly get a quest 3 for vr. 

Hopefully everything is capable for what I intend using it for. 

Again thank you for your help
