l'm actually trying to build my PC now.

Ryzen 5 5600g
Tuf TeamGroup 3600mhz 8x2
Asus tuf b450m plus II
Msi Mag 550w 80+ bronze
Tammuz ssd 240gb
Seagate 1tb hdd
Tecware Forge M2


I really need help getting this argb fan to be connected. Now these 2 fans in the front don't have the rgb or argb control wires, only the one on the back panel. And I'm so confused where to connect it. The motherboard I have doesn't have the 3-pin 5v , only the 4 pin 12v. Help

you mean like hub? I actually got one but it's id cooling.

It's too big to fit inside, even if I can fit it im not sure if it's working since the rat got peed on it couple of days ago and never used it. You think it's safe to use it now?

There is none. And without it, you can't connect the 3-pin ARGB hardware to your MoBo, to control the LEDs.

To get 3-pin ARGB headers, you have to buy RGB controller, like this one from Cooler Master,
specs: https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/coolers/rgb-accessories/argb-led-controller/
I also have this came along with the hub. It's like a switch cable. The other end is rgb or argb 3 pin, in the middle it has 3 buttons and in the other end is sata. It's like a rgb controller cable

You got this hub?
Specs: http://www.idcooling.com/Product/detail/id/179/name/HA-01 ARGB Fan Hub

If so, you can control ARGB fans with it, IF you use the remote control. But you can not use MoBo software since your MoBo doesn't have 3-pin ARGB header it needs.

Id-Cooling also has another form of that hub, without any remote control feature,
specs: http://www.idcooling.com/Product/detail/id/211/name/HA-02 ARGB Fan Hub

And if you have this hub, then you're out of luck since it needs 3-pin ARGB header on MoBo to work.


In the other hand, Cooler Master hub i linked above, can take 4-pin RGB header from MoBo and turn it into 3-pin ARGB that you can use with ARGB fans.

I also have this came along with the hub. It's like a switch cable. The other end is rgb or argb 3 pin, in the middle it has 3 buttons and in the other end is sata. It's like a rgb controller cable
I've seen those as well and this gives you the "poor man's" control of RGB/ARGB since you have to use the buttons in that cable to control the RGB. Essentially, needing you to have access to your PC internals to push those buttons, once that cable is all hooked up. Very inconvenient. But it's cheap.
