According to the manual and specifications, it does not have one. It seems to ONLY have four pin headers. An Aura 4 pin RGB header and a Gen 2 4 pin addressable header. No 3 pin addressable header. If you need one, you may need to purchase a third party controller.

Specifications and the board diagram don't show that though. I think that part of the manual is copy pasted from another manual or a misprint. Either that, or the rest of the manual is wrong. Based on these, taken directly from the manual for that board on the ASUS website, there are ZERO three pin RGB headers on that board.

It's right there
Addressable Gen 2 header (4-pin ADD_GEN2)
It's inline 4 pin with one pin missing.

They don't say four pin if it's a three pin. Ever. And on motherboard diagrams it always shows the missing pin as just a white square, not an actual pin like the other three pins. I could show you hundreds of boards like that. I'm not saying this isn't a mistake by ASUS, but if it IS, it's an enormous one. It's a very good way to completely fry some hardware by plugging into the wrong type of RGB header.
