Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Make and model of the motherboard please? CPU cooler's make and model?

my fan controller
If the controller came bundled with the case, include the make and model of your case as well.

actually the fan controller came with my fans the aigo darkflash pro DR12 fans and the CPU cooler is the ID COOLING SE224XT V3 and the motherboard is the H410M D3Sh V3

According to Aigo, the DR12 fans are 5v ARGB 3pin.
According to ID Cooling, the ARGB on the SE224XT is 5v ARGB 3pin.

So I don't see an issue as long as the fan controller is ARGB 5v 3pin, not just a fan speed controller.

They can have slightly different names for the same header sometimes too, which is annoying. For example, I had recently built a new pc with an aio cooler, it came with ARGB plugs, but the manual referred to them as Rainbow_RGB or something similar, which my mobo did not have labeled as. After a lot of research, it seems different manufacturers can have different labels for these led ports.

Most do. But it's usually JRain or similar. Vendors will do that because RGB cannot do Rainbow and there's no set standards with sales, many call their fans RGB and they'll be realistically ARGB, which are totally different in every way. So the Rain kinda sets the fan header apart.
