Can I synchronize case fans with aura sync if my motherboard has no RGB pin?


So this is my configuration:


CPU: Intel Core i7 8700k

CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12S

GPU: Asus ROG Strix GTX 1070

RAM: HyperX Fury Black 16 GB 2400 mHz

Mobo: Asus PRIME Z370-P

PSU: Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 750W Case: Zalman Z3 Plus

Monitor: Asus VG248QE


My case comes with 1 intake and 3 exhaust fans (with an additional slot for 1 more front intake fan). I am looking for a nice RGB fan to replace my stock ones and add an additional front fan.


My Asus ROG Strix GPU has Aura sync RGB Lighting, but my motherboard has no RGB port.


So my question is: Is it possible to synchronize the RGB on my GPU with the RGB on the case fans if they support Aura Sync?


So far I've come upon two models case fans that I like and support Aura:


CoolerMaster Masterfan pro 120

Deepcool CF120


Note that my GPU has the option to connect case fans to it.

No. GPU fan connectors mean that you can use GPU Tweak to control fan speeds. You would need to have RGB header to control RGB fans, or use Sync. There's ROG Aura Terminal as separed controller/hub box. Its listed on Asus site, but with quick search I didn't see any retailers or price. Going of what Node and Commander Pro from Corsair cost, its close to $100.
