So ive never built a pc with rgb fans in it and i bought this case that had two preinstalled and an LED button on the front panel so I assumed there was a controller included with the case but it seems as if theres only a fan hub and a cable off the fan hub that leads to some RGB connection with the system working and everything else connected including fan power the fans spin but there are no lights at all. My Motherboard doesnt have an rgb controller on it so i assumed id need one (even though the case is suppose to have built in rgb presets) so i bought a cheap molex RGB controller off amazon to see if it would make it work but after plugging it in still no lights at all. The case is a Gamdias Talos E1. I have a feeling like im just being dumb so if i am and there is some obvious answer to this please let me know cause i have been fiddling with it for days now.

List your full system's specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Also include the controller you sourced from Amazon. It'd be good if you can include a link to it to help explain more(without saying much).

+ According to your manual, you're going to need a compatible motherboard to avail the RGB on that case or a controller that accepts the connection. Might also want to include a pic of the connector you need to plug in for RGB. That being said, no, the case doesn't come with a controller for the fans.

That amazon controller does nothing when plugged in and any button on the remote is pressed. Would anyone be able to link me to a controller that would work?
