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 ...

You must have posted that last post when I was typing my last post...


Down load the manual if your case was missing it. It has the wiring schematics in it.

Your AIO and fans should all have the wiring schematics you can find on the Deepcool website if they didn't come in the packages.
