Hey dejoris guy, no problem!
It won't connect to the z370i's 3-pin ADD_HEADER, but it will connect to any 4-pin +GRB header.
Let me tell you something though - you can actually get this block to work with the addressable header. There is an LED strip at the bottom of the block, and you can remove it and replace it with a 5v WS2812B addressable strip (as long as the strip isn't wider than 10mm and taller than 4mm, it will fit in the old spot). From there, you can wire that strip to the ADD_HEADER and it will come up as the ADD STRIP in the ASUS Aura software. The strip you'll have to buy will need to be 60 LED/m, which is the density of the RGB strip that comes with the block. If you want the block to be brighter, you can get a 144led/m one.
I am about to do this shortly, and I'm also converting my EK D5 X-Res into an addressable strip (it's very easy to remove the RGB strip in the D5 X-Res and replace it. Here is a crappy photo
I took. The only downside is that all of this needs to be chained and soldered together, so I have a lot of sleeving to do. Doing this means you can do away with a standalone controller, and isn't very difficult to do if you're good with a soldering iron. Let me know if you need more information.
