Hello all,
I am planning on a massive upgrade to my whole computer in the next two or three months. I will have a custom liquid cool loop which i have experience in but i am trying to jump on the RGB bandwagon but i am confused a bit. The simple question is i want to put a ton of rgb fans (I need 6 alone just for my radiators) and some rgb ledstrips. I then want to control all them. What are some good rgb fans (keep in mind i need them for radiators) rgb leds, and a controller for all of these. My motherboard has RGB fusion so do i need a controller?

I am planning on using this case
GIGABYTE Z390 DESIGNARE LGA 1151 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813145110&Description=GIGABYTE Z390 DESIGNARE LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z390 &cm_re=GIGABYTE_Z390_DESIGNARE_LGA_1151_(300_Series)_Intel_Z390-_-13-145-110-_-Product

Please let me know if you need anymore information

Thanks for the quick reply!


Looking on page 30 of the motherboard manual, I can see this motherboard has only one 12v RGB Strip header. You would want a motherboard that offers a 5v addressable RGB header.
Could you suggest a better motherboard then? My requirements were thunderbolt 3, m.2 thermal shields and of course overclocking abilities. This MB was the best one i thought.

The
Corsair Commander Pro
and
Corsair LL120 120mm Rgb Pwm Fan, 3 Pack with Lighting Node PRO‎
may be what you are looking for. It comes with a RGB Lighting Hub and you can purchase additional fans.
I looked into this but ultimately didn't know what this is and this setup would cost way too much. Considering a pack of three fans from corsair cost almost $100. Considering i am thinking of 10 fans total, this would be a bit too much.
