Is there any way to connect this fan directly to the motherboard without a controller?
My idea was to connect it to a motherboard usb header.
According to the manual, the fan comes with a USB 9-pin connector but that doesn’t match usb headers on the motherboard (there isn’t a hole for one pin of the usb header)
I’ve got an Asus Prime B450 plus

Make sure youre looking at a usb header and not something else. The picture of the plug from the fan you showed is definitely a usb 9 pin plug.

If you look at where the holes are in the cable you will notice that it will not fit a standard usb header, that is my problem
