Powering Kraken x61 with ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO

I am new to building computers and find myself having questions left and right. I have been searching for clear answers but can't seem to find one. I just need a bit of help on powering the pump. The step says, "Connect the 3-pin power cable from the pump to the 4-pin CPU-PWR connector on the motherboard." Now I don't see anything on the board labeled CPU-PWR, or I'm blind which is possible. I did see a CPU-OPT, I wasn't sure if that was it or not. Also I did see 1 x CPU Fan connector(s) (1 x 4 -pin)
1 x CPU OPT Fan connector(s) (1 x 4 -pin)
4 x Chassis Fan connector(s) (4 x 4 -pin)

Also I'm using the Enthoo Pro Case if that means anything for the fans. I know it has a built in controller but not sure if I'm going to need to use it or not. Any help would be great. Thank you!
