MSI z490 Gaming Plus CPU cooler header


I've just picked up an EK-AIO 360 D-RGB and I've installed the rad no problem. My issue is that I'm not sure which header to plug in the actual pump unit into. The mobo doesn't have a CPU_OPT header like I'm used to, but it does have both a CPU_Fan and a Pump_Fan header. The three radiator fans have their own PWN connector [three fans into one Y-Splitter] which I'm assuming goes into the Pump_Fan header and the pump PWM into the CPU fan one, but I'm not sure. There's also a SYS_Fan header close to the CPU socket, so I'm just very confused. Neither manual has any insight so I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on this.
