OLD GUY Needs quick 411 on ARGB / RGB STUFF

so I'm from a time from way before ARGB.  I ordered and half installed a Water Cooling setup for my son - the GameMax IceChill 240  (https://www.alza.hu/gamemax-icechill-240-d5756764.htm)

in the process, I discovered that the motherboard he has (MSI B85M-G43) doesnt have aRGB connector on it.  So now the thing is working, cooling the PC but the LED RGB stuff is off.

 

So I ordered him an GameMax PWM + ARGB HUB V2.0  -- and what confuses me now, is how can we control the animations on the watercooling set from his computer?

How do you hook this thing up to talk to the motherboard?  Or the PC?

Thanks!

You can't, it's just a hub and not a controller, it's meant to connect to an existing mobo RGB header to expand it, which you said you don't have.
