Hello! Irecently built a PC and decided to get some RGB action going.. the problem is, my MOBO has no RGB connectors. What would be a good option to get for just the classic 4 pin led fans (Decided to cheap out and use some of those phanteks led frames instead I'm not sure if their connectors are different) and LED strips? Are there any controllers that I could plug into USB 2.0 header for some software control too?

Not 100% sure, but something like this might work;https://www.pccasegear.com/products/40048?PPC=Y&gclid=Cj0KCQiA1sriBRD-ARIsABYdwwHl56dUAWKH4i_zcLQO2BRoJrCqvTHhBZtthbCqDnm1GDtAMxCtQ10aAhm4EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds.

seems good, but will see for other suggestions too. Thanks though!
 
Look at the Cooler Master RGB LED Controller, example here

It comes with several cables. One plugs into a SATA power output from the PSU for power, one connects this Controller to a mobo USB2 port, and the others plug into the Controller's ports and, using included adapters, provide common 4-pin male outputs for your RGB frames from Phanteks. Now Phanteks uses different connectors, BUT their frames often are sold with adapter cables included to allow you to plug into one of those common 4-pin males. The last part is you download and install free the Cooler Master software. When run, it communicates with the Controller using that USB2 connection and controls all the RGB (plain, 4-pin variety) devices plugged into the controller's ports.
