    Question Motherboard that supports ddr3 with RGB header

    so my current mobo is a sabertooth 990fx. I don't want to spend crazy money on new RAM, so I'd like to know if there is a motherboard out there that supports ddr3 ram, but also has an ARGB header for rgb fans, lights, etc. I haven't found anything so far.
