RGB mods

I've recently built up a PC based on a dual CPU X99 motherboard that I bought off AliExpress (yeah, I know, but they do appear to be getting better). I also installed two 120mm AIO liquid cooling systems to cool the CPUs. Now these coolers have nice, pretty RGB functions, but the motherboard doesn't support RGB. So, my question is, is there any sort of "adapter" that allows me to connect the RGB wires to it and show the nice people pretty colours?

There are various solutions but all involve (AFAIK) 3rd party kits using splitter and adaptors. You'd need to google your AIO brand for the appropriate kits. Coolermaster have compatible kits that use the 4 pin fan headers, i think.

This link is just as an example. It is from a NZ web-shop (one of the first google results i got)
