Hey guys. I'm not seeing a place to plugin my cpu cooler. Should I just plug it into the fan 1 at the top left? Normally I see a cpu fan spot but i'm not seeing one on this board ~ shuttle SP35P2 Pro

I see in the mobo manual that all the fan headers are labelled solely as "Fan1", etc. However, the manual also indicates that, in BIOS Setup, there are separate settings available for the CPU FAN and the SYS FANs. I suggest you plug your CPU cooler into FAN1. Then go into BIOS Setup and try setting CPU_FAN to one of the fixed slower speeds. You may have to SAVE and Exit from BIOS Setup to see the fan speed change. Try this process with other speed settings on CPU_FAN. If this does NOT change the CPU cooler speed, then try again using a different header, until you can identify the one that the CPU_FAN settings work on.

FAN1 is most of the time the CPU_FAN unless you have a port that specifically says CPU_FAN, or your using a high class modern gamer board, which has a special plug for AIO water pumps, as those require a bit more amperage then a normal cpu fan would.
