So I have a Gigabyte B450m ds3h mobo.
Decided to splurge and get myself a case, new ARGB CPU cooler, and ARGB fans, and never thought to look into whether or not my mobo supported ARGB. Turns out it doesn't (completely my fault). While I do plan on eventually upgrading to one that does, I wanted to know exactly what I need to be able to control the lighting through a program as opposed to a controller (if that is even possible). I'm fine with plain rgb rotation but my ultimate plan was to be able to change the colors frequently and right now I can't control my cpu cooler at all. I'll include links to what exactly I have. My case also has an included ARGB lightstrip that would be great to be able to control.

I'm just getting into the world of PC building so this is all new for me, all advice and info is welcome. The answer is probably obvious, just not to me :I

You could just use an ARGB compatible controller. One example https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/coolers/rgb-accessories/argb-led-controller/
