Hello all,

Maybe someone could help me understand this better as Google is no help.

I am building a pc from scratch and everything was going smooth until I started adding the fans.

My problem is -

I have a fan hub with 10 5-pin sockets which i have connected all of my fans to. ✔
The hub is connected to my psu via sata cable ✔
There is a 3-pin female cable coming out of fan hub and my motherboard has a 4-pin fan slot ❌

Now my questions are -

Is it necessary to connect fan hub to motherboard even though it is already connected to sata for power? ( I have connected my reset button to the fan hub so I can toggle it on/off and adjust the speed )

If I have to connect it, is there an adapter out there which will work with it? ( 4-pin female to 3-pin male !! Not a splitter )

Will the remote which came with the hub work?

May I also add that the fans are RGB.

Thanks
