    Question Fan Keep raving up on small CPU load

Everything works fine except for the fans which rev up every time the CPU has load even if the load is for like 2 seconds and the CPU at 25" running cold. This makes using the PC rather annoying as it keeps raving up and...

    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.
