    Question My motherboard has a 4 pin led strip connector but rgb fans I want to install require a 3-pin. What should I do?

    The mobo I have is the MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon. All RGB fans require a 3-pin but I do not believe it has any. What was included with the motherboard was a RGB extension that allows me to split two RGB LED Strips, both having 4-pin connectors. Please let me know what I have to do. Thank you.
