Pulled them out by accident but did not see where they were when I changed the GPU.

Hello repxsr

I'm not sure exactly what that is, were they soldered to the motherboard?

List me your motherboard and I'll have a look in the manual.

According to your picture, it should be easy enough to see where the two cables connect.

Thank you,

I can't seem to find anything on those connectors in the manual.

There should be two headers for the two cables. The header is a group of pins the connector slides onto. If you're having trouble seeing them, try using a magnifying glass.

 

Can you please send a photo of those two individual headers?

After searching, your pc has the ROG Strix Z490-F motherboard.

I'd like you to take a look at the end of the white connectors. Do they have any labeling or an arrow pointing downward?

Because the cables aren't very long and the connectors are white, they look like they would go to the ARGB and RGB headers.

If they are ARGB and RGB cables, you need to connect them to the proper headers or the led's will blow.

Before connecting them, let's make sure they're ARGB and RGB cables/connectors.

They pulled out from somewhere here that seemed to be under the GPU.

I'm not seeing any headers there to connect the cables to.

Take a look at the ends of the two white connectors, do they have any labeling or markings on them?

This can give an indication of where we should connect them.
