So I have just bought a case from Corsair which is the Corsair Spec Delta and it includes 3 RGB fans with it. Since I have an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 which doesn’t have an RGB header with it, is there any way to control or make the lights work on the fans? If there is a controller for this to make it work would it possible to get a link for them as I am struggling to see how I am going to make these fans work with their lighting

I think, unfortunately, you're going to need this. I don't think there are any others that specifically work with the Corsair setup, but if there are I'm sure somebody will be along to let us know. Otherwise, I believe this is your best bet.

Thanks for the reply dude, I was researching about this controller from Corsair but I’m just wondering if it would with my case fans which are Corsair A1225M12S. I don’t really want to purchase this and turns out it won’t be compatible with my case fans

Can you link to the actual fans, because the model number you listed returns results indicating they are non-lighted 3 pin fans.
Here’s the link to the fans: https://www.avadirect.com/A1225M12S-120mm-Black-Case-Fan-3-Pin-Power-Connector/Product/7695316

And here’s the link to the case I’m using that includes the fans:
Corsair SPEC-DELTA Carbide Series, RGB Tempered Glass Mid-Tower ATX Gaming Case - Black https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07KGSJRC3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_u3svDbCEJHXNZ

Hope this helps.

Actually, those are not the fans that come with that case. These are.

Honestly, I would highly recommend that you replace them with better quality fans that have PWM control capability as well. Those are five dollar fans. There are NO five dollar fans that I could tell somebody "yeah, those are good or even ok".
Yeah man I think I’m going to replace them with the Corsair SP120 fans, only thing is now if it can plug in into 4 pin cha/pmw on the motherboard

The SP120 fans are four pin PWM. They should not be a problem to plug into the motherboard OR the Corsair commander.
No, the SP120s are not PWM, they are DC fans. And the fans that come with the SPEC Delta aren't SP 120's - they are the only 12V analog RGB fans in Corsair's stable. They don't work with iCUE or the rest of the Corsair ecosystem; they just work connected to a 12V RGB motherboard.
