Connecting MF120R ARBG Fans to an ASUS MB with 4-Pin RGB Header

Recommended Posts

I've just purchase 4 of the MasterFan MF120R ARGB fans and their 3-pin ARGB connector is not compatible with the 4-pin 5050 RGB header on my motherboard (ASUS Prime X470-Pro).  I was hoping to take advantage of the AURA compatibility of the fans. I’m looking for any solution that would allow me to accomplish this.

The only controller that I’ve found that would seem to work is the Adressable RGB Controller that comes with the ML240R Liquid Cooler.  Cooler Masters doesn’t seem to sell this specific controller separately and I haven’t been able to reach anyone at Cooler Masters when I’ve called.

If anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate it.

I looked up your motherboard,  the RGB headers there are not ARGB headers so it will not work.    You need to buy a CM RGB Hub for the fans,  they come with the 3 pack but if you bought all 4 individually you still need to buy the RGB hub which also requires Sata Power from the PSU.


Also see their site here if you can't find it
