The case did not come with a hub. My motherboard has 2 addressable 3pin RGB headers, and 2 more 4pin RGB headers.

The picture I linked of the "RGB fan cables" are the cables coming off just one fan. I assume one is power, one is RGB and one is to chain other RGB fans together?

If the case cables "provide" an extra addressable RGB header, as I am guessing from please see picture, then could I plug the case RGB into an adressable RGB header on the motherboard, and then plug the AIO RGB cable into the case 3 pin header, and plug RGB fan1 into the AIO male cable, and then plug RGB fan2 into RGB fan1 male cable, etc, so that the only one plugged into the motherboard ueader is the case, and this would allow the case buttons to control the entire RGB color system?

If so I would probably just do that, but I don't know if that's how it works.

And that's just the led cables ... Does each fan also need to plug into a motherboard header to get power? Bah I'm confused. This is what happens when I don't build a PC in 7 years ...
