So im building my first PC and all is going well and everything is working.
I bought some Led and some led fans were included in the case as well and i need help in hooking them up.
Im using a Gigabyte Aorus b450 pro wifi. The case is Coolermaster MB530P and the led i bought can be found in the following link.
https://www.amazon.com/Extended-Computer-Magnetic-LED-Strip/dp/B07C9V1NF1

I've connected the case fan leds with a SATA cable to the power supply but i cant seem to connect it to my MOBO. I need to connect it to my MOBO so i can sync the RGB with the MOBO lights.

Also, i don't know where to connect the LED strip to. I've tried connecting it to the MOBO but i cannot and i am wondering whether it is compatible or not.

Any Help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Look at page 16 in your manual and connect one of those LED strips to the LED_C (RGB (RGBW) LED Strip Header) then connect the 2nd LED strip to the first (daisy chain).

I have that same LED Strip kit connected to my Asus ROG Strix B450-F and they work perfectly for me with Asus Aura software.

According to this page
your case fans are ARGB so they would need to be connected to the D_LED Header on your MB using the Gigabyte connector on the splitter they provided and be sure to set the D_LED switch set at 5V.

Those LEDs seem to not have official support on Gigabyte motherboards but you should still be able to use them.

You should just be able to plug the LED strip into the RGB header on your motherboard. If you are using the extension cables that came with the LEDs you may have to remove some plastic from the extension cable plug in order to get it to fit on the motherboard.
