Hi all,

I hope you are enjoying the Saturday morning bacon and eggs breakfast. :) I have a quick question about rgb wire controller. Might be stupid, but I am not an electrician and I really don't know. I am talking about these two types: Single colour wire controller and RGB wire controller. My question is: what will happen if you put a molex connector on one side of the single colour wire controller and a 3 pin header on the other side and connect it to an RGB RAM heatsink with a 3-pin header as well ? (e.g this one). Will it control anything? It will not change colours, but speed? mode? or just short won't work at all. Thanks in advance for the help.
