I was planning on buying the Corsair iCUE 220T case, however, according to the top review on Amazon, the fans aren't compatible with the Tomahawk Max. But 2 questions asking if it would work with that motherboard said yes.

So will the fans work or not? If not is there any around it? As I really like the case. Or is there a similar case that would work?

Thanks

Fans will work as fans, they will need headers on motherboard or adapter cables Lights will be controlled by Icue software via a usb.

I'm worried about this review: "Bear in mind that the SP120 fans are 3 pin 5V DC. They don't play nicely with 12V motherboards such as the Tomahawk Max. You will need 4 pin 12V fans "

This is my first time building a PC, so I'm not very knowledgable. Does this mean I can't use the fans with my motherboard?

Just make sure your Led voltages match. If your MB is 5volts then you need to connect them to 5v leds.
Many Manufacturers with there own connectors and controllers.
You can always add the Corsair controller.
