Q: Can i connect ADDRESSABLE RGBs fans to this mother board? If not what controller would i need to get this to work?
Answer by Website User on 25th February 2021
I bought a cooler master argb hub (not the mini one). Goes inside the case and can be controlled by the full cooler master software. You'll need a spare sata to power it and it'll also need to plug into a USB 2 header so make sure your board has 2 USB headers so you can still use USB

Great entry level 10th generation Intel board has the basics covered, and everything you need for good pc build including a m. 2 ssd slot.

This is a good motherboard choice for a low end 10th gen Intel chip.

For a little bit more you should get the b560 which allows some overclocking. only one sys_fan header on this too so I needed to get a fan hub. overall though, it works, esp if you aren't too worried about potential upgrade paths for a good while

Very good motherboard. The only issue with it would be the fact that it only comes with one fan slot so if you have a case with multiple fans then this will be an issue but apart from that it is a very good motherboard and 10/10 would recommend
