Looking for RGB 120mm fans that will sync to my ASUS Aura Mobo

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have recently built a new PC and I am in need of 3 120mm fans for the pull side of my front mount radiator.

 

I have a B450 Gaming mobo and it has 2 - 4 pin 12v RGB headers.

I control a RGB light strip as well as the Built in ROG RGB logo of the MOBO through the Asus Aura app.

 

I have spent a good bit of time trying to find fans and every one I research is a 5v 3 pin RGB connector, even though the fan will state it is Aura compatible.

 

There must be something I am missing because this doesn't make any sense to me.  Does it sync to Aura via some app?  

And for the final kicker, the fans need to be white and the blades need to light up.  Because I'll be using these fans on the back side (Pulling) of a front mount 360 radiator, a front RGB ring won't do me any good.

So far I like the Corsair QL's, the Thermaltake Ring Quad's.

I also like the look of the Coolermaster Master fan Halo White.

 

Any help would be appreciated.  

I'm starting to think that maybe I have to buy a RGB controller that syncs through some proprietary app, because it doesn't look like anything but a LED strip will plug into those 12v 4 pin headers on the mobo.

I have these, they are daisy chainable so you only need one pwm fan header and the 4pin RGB connector to connect all 5. Used them with both my Rog Strix Z390 - E with Aura Sync and they work with my Gigabyte board and RGB Fusion.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

Thanks, that's a nice option. Wish they made them in a white housing.

Corsair QL's, and Thermaltake Ring Quad's are argb not rgb so you would have to use there software and controllers same with Coolermaster Master fan Halo White.
