Corsair 465x Case question

So i recently bought a corsair 465x case, and it came with 3 Corsair LL120 (rgb) fans and a Corsair Lighting node core. I noticed that the fans were pre wired to the lnc and the lnc was powered by a sata cable and connected to the mobo using usb 2.0. In the front (where the mobo goes) I noticed some front panel io that was all explained by the case's manual: hd audio, power sw, reset sw, power led + & -, and usb 3.0. All of these connections were labeled, except for the usb 3.0 connector which was very obvious as the largest one. In the same location in the front, there were 3 4-pin connectors, and I assume they are for the 3 LL120 fans, because I heard the lnc was only for rgb... i have 4 fan headers on my motherboard, apart from the cpu header and cpu_opt header. another question: do i need a corsair commander or something to control the fans? or can the fans just connect to the motherboard?

if everything i said in here was correct, please let me know... if anything i said was wrong, please correct me. this is the first time i have ever built a pc so please try to explain this as if you were talking to a 9 year old. 😃

You've actually got a pretty good handle on things from the sounds of it.

If you want to control the fans from iCUE, then you'd need a Commander Pro. But it's not necessary. You can absolutely control your fan speeds from your motherboard or any other PWM controller.
