Default Corsair H115i RGB Platinum AIO Connections

Hi, new member old user (73, so bear with me) here. I've found the schematics in the Corsairs Obsidian 500D SE Setup Advice and Diagrams to be most helpful and to whomever made them, thanks so much!

In my newest build, the Corsair 500D SE has four LL 120s front and rear and two LL 140s (cooler) tied into the Commander Pro and the Lighting Controller. The Corsair H115i RGB Platinum AIO Liquid CPU Cooler, 280mm (I've switched the ML 140s to the LL 140s) has a USB connector that according to the schematic goes into the Commander Pro, a 4 pin fan output into CPU FAN, a SATA connection to the power supply, and a 4 pin/3 pin male connector that has me completely baffled.

I didn't see the male connector anywhere in the schematics. Can someone please help me out tell me where this male 4/3 pin male connector goes?

Thanks/DaveO

It connects to the fans that come supplied with the cooler. It's meant to allow the fans to function based off the current temps of the cooler and to free up fan ports on the motherboard.

Thanks you for the response. Now I'm really confused as both outputs on the cooler fans are connected to the Commander Pro and the Lighting Controller. What am I missing here?

At https://forums.tomshardware.com/thre...iring.3435167/ there is a lengthy explanation of how the Corsair H115i Platinum Pro should be configured. In short, The H115i fans are not to be connected to the Commander Pro. Thanks to Corsair Calico Jack for pointing me in the right direction.
