Commander Pro and EKWB RGB

They call it D-RGB on the EKWB AIO I just received. The RGB connector is a three pin, ARGB connector, that is, four positions, but only three openings.

 

My motherboard, which is older, only has four pin 12v RGB headers, no three pin ARGB headers. I do have the Corsair Commander Pro with the three pin LED port for the lighting strips.

 

The AIO also has a VDG connection which is three pin. Can this be connected to the LED connections on the Commander Pro for it to control the RGB of the AIO? I have also found some RGB to VDG cables.

 

Otherwise, I don't know how I would be able to do anything with the RGB on the AIO. I did find a converter which allow for connecting 12v motherboard header then outputs a couple of 5v RGB connections. It's by DeepCool.

This might be a possibility, but I don't know how well it works or how safe it is. If it works I could use it for a couple of things in the build.

This is what I used for my EK CPU + GPU blocks.

I could plug it straight into the 5v D-RGB header on my Asus board, but iCUE just has far more flexibility and options. The other end of it goes into RGB channel 1 or 2 on your Commander. In iCUE, you would set this up by the number of LEDs on the AIO (?). I don't the answer to that by it is probably 20, so that would 2x10 LED strips.

 

Not sure on the VDG connection and I haven't used them. The above is a pretty common situation.
