Ok it has been solved , turns out the fans whose conbector is a 4 pin molex has an adapter to turn it into a 3 pin that is included , i plugged that in and now i have rgb , just not controllable that is ( by option , not because i didnt know how )

Thanks everyone
 
hard to tell since the connector is really dark.

it's either a Molex connector (doubtful) or a male 2pin fan connector which is unusual but exists --- often if it's a fan that comes preinstalled with a case that has a fan controller.

I could be completely wrong tough.

It looks like a proprietary fan connection for that case. Does the case have some sort of fan control switch? Is that the only wire from the fan? The fan in my old CoolerMaster 690 had 2 wires, and one looked almost exactly like that, it went to a light switch on top since the fan was an led.

Is there a corresponding connector dangling with the front panel wiring?

Was the fan purchased seperately?

Its a pre installed fan , yes
But my case has no light switch best i can think is that the reset button connector fits inside it , but thats really grasping , fck i hate my case .... And fans

It kinda looks like its a 3 pin connector , but only 2 pin are wired into it , and i dont think its a 2 pin male , and yes its preinstalled
