Pure Plus 12 Premium RGB fans--How to connect to mobo?

Recommended Posts

The instruction mentions that in order to control the fans via software you'd have to connect the controller to the motherboard. My motherboard does not have an internal usb 2.0 hub. Any ideas/solution? Thanks.

Your controller is a five port one, correct? If so, it should connect to a 9 pin USB 2.0 header. I believe you two cables; a 9 pin usb 2.0 to micro usb and a 9 pin usb 2.0 Y cable that goes to two micro usb ends. The micro usb end should plug into your controller.

Yes it is a 5 port controller. The fans are running since I've connected the controller to the PSU however my motherboard does not seem to have a usb header. I would like to know what my options are as far as controlling the fans' speed and lighting.

Maybe you only have one USB 2.0 header and it's being used by your front panel ports for your case? I'd be very surprised if you actually don't have the header.

If you don't have the header, you will need to find an expansion card to provide one. I briefly looked, but all I could find were cards to add USB 3.0 headers, so you may have a tough time finding them. 

Without a USB 2.0 header, you will be unable to control the fans with Thermaltake's software.
