Question - looking for the best (or an) option to connect 3 EK devices (MB block, Res, GPU block) D-RGB ports (Addressable GEN2 LED) to my motherboard (Crosshair VIII Hero) that only has 2 digital RGB ports (and a few regular RGB ports).

Suggestions? Do I need to get a separate controller?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Marstg, so basically a single MB port can drive multiple devices (and I don't need some form of powered splitter)...

Yes and no, the mobo rgb header will only supply around 60 leds (your mobo manual should say what the cap is ) after that you will want to use a powered hub/controller.
There is literally tons of different spitters , controllers out there.
I installed one of these this week and have been more than happy with it. Ton of different suppliers for this controller on ali or ebay.
I also installed one of these to my other argb header.
Truth be told the formula mod is the nicer of the 2.
