1Do all motherboards have 3 pin RGB?
Wait a moment and try again.
2Can I plug a 3 pin RGB to 4 pin?
Any newer boards have the ability to control the fan speed by voltage. To change it from “PWM” to “Voltage” or “Analog,” look for the option “Fan Control Mode” or “Analog.” For more detailed details, see your mainboard’s manual. A 4-pin fan can also be mounted on a 3-pin connector. Here the fan is running at full throttle, as long as the system has not been modified.
With the Case Fan Hub, only one PWM signal for all fans can be set.
3What if my motherboard does not have RGB?
Over to You
What are your thoughts on all this?
Is your motherboard RGB friendly, or will you have to go through a DIY session to RGBify your system instead?
4Can I plug a 5V into a 12V RGB header?
5Is ARGB always 3 pin?
6Can I plug RGB into fan header?
7What happens if you plug a 5V RGB into a 12V?
8Can I use a 4 pin splitter for 3 pin ARGB?
9Can I plug RGB strip into motherboard?
10Can I use RGB RAM on non RGB motherboard?
11Can I run RGB fans without RGB header?
12Can I use RGB RAM with non RGB RAM?

13Do all motherboards support RGB?
Some fans of In Win’s Aurora range can be daisy-chained together, but they do need a separate breakout box to prevent overloading the 12V connection on the motherboard. Silverstone’s LSB01, a third-party device, is also available, which converts a single RGB header into eight while still providing more power via a molex connector.
The LSB01 is unfortunately priced at $35/£35, but it does come with a pair of RGB LED strips. If you have more modest needs, it’s cheaper to split the RGB headers in two.
14Which is better RGB or ARGB?
RGB may be right for you if you know exactly what kind of lighting scheme you want or just have a color in mind.
It’s also important to consider what you’re pairing with when it comes to lighting.
15How many pins is RGB?
Via 5V ARGB headers, individual LEDs of the connected device can be addressed (which is why the “A” stands for “addressable”)), and all LEDs are synced via 12V RGB headers. An LED strip that has an RGB connector only lights up in one color at a time. An ARGB header can also be used to display advanced effects, such as the famous rainbow effect.
Very important: RGB and ARGB are incompatible. In addition to the voltage, the difference is mainly in the control: for RGB connections, the hue is controlled by three channels (“R,” “G” and “B”), but only for ARGB connections: “Data” is the product. For example, RGB lighting in the Dark Base 700 requires an RGB header. An ARGB header is required for modern ARGB enthusiasts, such as the Light Wings.
