Hello @ancientprayer,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

I apologize for the late reply. Kindly let me know if you are still having this issue.

 

If you are thinking of adding extra RGB fans it should be as easy as plugging them into the motherboard of the machine to power on the fans (Since most RGB fans only require power)

 

Kindly post your MTM so I can check if there are other items you need to get them working.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1

Hello @ancientprayer,

 

Based on the fan description (Part number: 5F10X63210) any 120x25mm fan should fit inside the chasis.

 

The RGB pin on the side of the motherboard is also used for RGB lights that you want to add that have control functions. (LED/RGB Strips)

 

You can also view this page to find the parts list of the machine: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/desktops-and-all-in-ones/legion-series/legion-t5-28imb05/90nc/parts/display/compatible

 


Hope this helps.

Hello @ancientprayer,

 

 

Sorry about that, I forgot to post the pin size. 

 

Based on the photo available in the support website(attached below) it should be a 4 pin connector.
