Why does every freaking manufacturer have a proprietary controller???? Why didn't I make sure I got a motherboard that had an RGB header???? In the absence of an RGB header... why can't I order a stand-alone hub that would be compatible with a 4 pin 12V RGB fan????

Heh... so here's the deal... the case I just ordered comes with 3X Lian-Li RGB fans that can connect to several different motherboard headers, but apparently don't have any kind of controller that comes with them. Since my motherboard doesn't have a header and both my Hue+ and Corsair commander pro are proprietary I'm trying to find some kind of generic controller that'll allow me to connect and control a "standard 4 pin 12V RGB" fan.....


Any ideas?

How is it powered? I'm assuming I could get the required DC off of a molex? (I ordered one of the cheaper CM ones for now)

So the RGBW, or do they all connect via the phone app and the one with the remote just adds a bit of hands on control?
