Ignore the PSU fans, they are wired up inside the PSU itself (although
they sometimes have a rotation sensor output - yours apparently
doesn't).

There should be a fan on the CPU Heatsink. That needs connecting to the
motherboard.

Whether there are any others depends on the case - usually there is at
least one extract fan on the back of the case .. in which case it should
have a wire coming from it. Really cheap and nasty cases might not, in
which case it'll probably overheat in short order.
