What do I need to daisy chain the rgb cords of the 3 phanteks to the mobo? Is there an adapter? If so the adapter needs to be pwm?

For the fan control....I would suggest the Phanteks fan hub. It can control up to 11 3-pin fans from a single PWM header

Sorry I am new to this type of stuff and trying to wrap my head around it. The adapter cord you listed is just an adapter for the cheaper halo frames. I am wondering how I can connect all 3 RGB frames to one RGB header on my Mobo.


This should work yes?

Will this splitter also work for connecting multiple LED strips to the RGB header as well?

I'd like to have an LED strip behind my monitor too for some accent lighting. Is this achieved by connecting a extender cord?

The Halo frames have splitters built in, so they will daisy chain without any other cords needed. You'll just need the adapter to go to the motherboard header (unless you get the Halo lux which have it in the box). LED strips should also daisy chain together. If you only have one mother board header, you'll need the adapter you linked to attach the halos and the strips to the same header. For the LEDs behind the monitor, there are LED strips that connect via usb, although you won't be able to control them with the motherboard. If you want mother board control, you would need a 4 pin rgb extension to attach to the splitter you linked.

Awesome thanks! Found this one:

Having 3 fans to one RGB header and 3 LED strips to another RGB header won't overload anything will it?

Nope, that should work fine. The Asus manual states LED strips shouldn't exceed 2m (6.6 ft) in length per header, so as long as your strips match that, you're good.

I couldn't find the manual online my apologies. Is that total length of the actual lit up strip? I was planning on using extender cords to reach my monitor and under my desk.

Yes, total length of the lit up strip not including extensions.
