How to connect LED strip to MB?

Both are technically 3 pin so it's hard to find a clarification on this as one is a fake 4 pin 3 pin wannabe.

 

Trying to buy these Phanteks RGB strips.

 

 

How do I connect THIS:

Probably with the included adapter that is listed under "Specs".

That's 12v. I want to use the 5v Addressable 3 pin header that requires a 4 pin connector but only uses 3 pins. Or am i missing something?

Somehow I don't follow, please elaborate. There's nothing in the specs that helps me understand that I can go from the "4" pin addressable header that only uses 3 pins and Phanteks adapter looks like it only uses "3" pin connections which have only 3 pins but not 4 where only 3 are used, as is on my motherboard.

you wont with that lighting strip. it is already a digital LED kit (DRGB) as the controller is case bound.

the addressable isn't incorporated in that lighting kit.

So I need the starter kit? That will work with the addressable header?

Okay, so like @bowrilla said about the specs, it says it has an adapter (+5,DATA/NA,GND) NA means blank, not available, right? So a "fake" 4 pin that's 3 pin, right? But none of the cables I see in the pics show that connection. I just wanna make sure before I buy them I'm getting the right thing..

That's not what Phanteks says. The strip itself is addressable. 

 

You either need their DRGB controller hub OR a compatible DRGB motherboard.

See "Specs" -> "Content":

2x 400mm Strip 
1x Extension 
1x M/B RGB Adapter 
4x 3M Strip Stickers

 

The M/B RGB Adapter should give you the right spacing for MB DRGB header. The extension cable is made for Phanteks Controller.

Think I'm just gonna rock with it. Works on his MB and it's the same addressable connector I have, so..I guess they're just not showing it in the pictures.

 

Thanks for the help guys!

 

Maybe this will help someone else.
