Hey guys.

I'm rebuilding my pc and just bought a new case for the purpose, a lian li o11-XL. I also bought 7 new addressable RGB fans (Cooler Master MasterFan MF121L RGB). The issue is that my msi B450 Max Gaming Plus motherboard don't have a 3-pin 5v header (I think it's called JRAINBOW Header) it do have 2x JRGB Headers. So my motherbord doesn't support addressable fans. Can i in someway connect my fans to my motherboard using a adapter and which one is best for the purpose?

Only way is to get separate ARGB controller. Cooler master sells one.
