Do you need RGB?

Is RGB header for fans?

Can I plug 3 pin RGB into 4-pin?
You can’t. 3-pin ARGB headers are 5V with a 5V pin, a single data pin, a blank spot and a ground pin. 4-pin RGB headers are 12V with 12V, red, blue and green pins. Plugging an ARGB strip into a non-ARGB header will blow out the strip.
