Yes, "Adressable RGB", which is the proprietary technology used by Thermaltake to sync their RGB equipped devices within a single system. I submitted feedback to the Thermaltake webmaster to have them add a better description of what "ARGB" stands for and not for customers to guess what it means. I found it spelled out once you select a case and scroll down to the section "Sync with Motherboard RGB Software" and is titled "Addressable RGB LED Header". The main selling point of ARGB is that it is capable of syncing several different vendors' RGB products (e.g., Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync, and ASRock Polychrome) into one common interface ;)

Addressable RGB, which means it has a digital controller on the device and a data pin on the header. It allows you to do more with patterns and timing
Thanks for chiming in. Google was telling me "Alpha RGB" and I was thinking adding an alpha channel would be at best a minor convinience to whomever writes the driver that nobody else would notice.

So I assume it uses a common WS2812B or similar?

I'm not sure, but you can find out what the related cables are using with a Google search, the long version of the name is "digitally addressable RGB LED", and the users fought over various names like DLED and ADD-LED until finally settling on ARGB as shorthand.
