The current PC i'm using is built in 2016 and it was time for a new look and small upgrade. However, i have run into some problems and although i have done some research, i don't see how i can fix it so i come to you for help.

PC Board Specs currently

- Intel i7 6700K
- GTX 980 STRIX SLI x 2
- MSI Z170A GAMING PRO

The only upgrades i am making are

+ ARGB Fans x 3 (3 A RGB connectors)
+ Digital RGB LED Lights x 2 (1 4 PIN connector)
+ Graphics Card

Inspecting my motherboard, i found that it does not support RGB through connector pins.
I have gone and looked for other options through USB and controller adapters, and the closest i could find was this Wired ARGB Controller by Coolermaster. The problem is this item doesn't come as a single purchase for some reason (unless i missed something) but rather comes with a CPU Cooler which i definitely don't need.

I need help with finding an item that supports ARGB connectors and connects to the motherboard through SATA and/or USB (as i don't have RGB or LED connector pins). I assume there's no converters between 4PIN and 3PIN ARGB as i can't find anything online from a google, but i can convert pretty much everything else.

I know some of you will say NZXT Hue but that is my last option as i already have the parts and the main thing was making my window facing fans RGB in the INWIN 303 case.

Thanks for help.

You may take a look these products:
1) From coolemaster, http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cooling-rgb-accessories/argb-led-small-controller/
2) From Thermaltake https://www.thermaltake.com/Cooler/Cooling_Accessory_/Fan_Controller/C_00003143/TT_Sync_Controller_TT_Premium_Edition/design.htm

For the dRGB: Phanteks https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811987005&Description=rgb%20controller&cm_re=rgb_controller-_-11-987-005-_-Product

Also something like this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAJ8X8MZ6873&cm_sp=SearchSuccess-_-INFOCARD-_-rgb+controller-_-9SIAJ8X8MZ6873-_-2&Description=rgb+controller

So it depends on what fans you will buy, check out the manual and the reviews, etc, make sure you can use any RGB fans that will be compatible to the controller you are interesting.
