Hello, I recently bought a Gigabyte B450M DS3H motherboard and it comes with a RGB Header
and I want to buy the MasterBox MB500 case from Cooler Master : http://www.coolermaster.com/case/mid-tower/masterbox-mb500/

but I don't know if the RGB connection of the fans goes into that RGB header in my motherboard.
The mobo specs says: 1 x CPU cooler LED strip/RGB LED strip header. I don't know if that can also be used for the rgb of the fans.

The case model I can buy is the one without the RGB Controller. Can I just simply chain up the RGB connections of the fans and then connect into my motherboard the remaining female rgb connector?

Thanks

The reason I said youre going to need an rgb spitter cable is because while that case should come with one included it should also come with the rgb controller .

The controller & splitters come in a little box in the case , if the seller has removed the rgb controller he has likely removed the splitter cable too!

I personally wouldnt buy from that seller, coolermaster do not sell tbat case without the rgb controller - which means hes selling an openbox or used case there - who knows what else could be missing.

According to Cooler Master, the case (MB500) does come with a wired RGB controller. You don't need to connect the fans into the MB, more info check the site ( in the FAQ section) http://www.coolermaster.com/service/faq/masterbox-mb500/

Yeah I checked that, but the thing is that the one I can buy (in the reseller) does not come with the RGB Controller. So in that case what can I do. It is possible to connect the fans directly into the motherboard's Led header?
 
If the reseller does include a 1 to 3 rgb splitter or something like that ( but make sure the splitter has the 4-pin in 12V-G-R-B), then you should be fine.
For your MB, the rgb header can output 2A(12V), I think three fans will not draw 2Amp power, more info for the MB rgb header, check the manual page 14. https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B450M-DS3H-rev-10#support-manual
