OK, so you need to get hold of the wiring details and drivers that operate such a device.

I recommend that you start here : OpenRGB[^]. There is an SDK you can use. Make sure you choose fans that are supported by their SDK.

Hey there! You could check out this article Control RGB Fans with C++: A Comprehensive Guide[^] it may be helpful? Not knowing exactly what hardware or tools you are using this might be a good open ended guide?

Looks like you’ll have to find which Fan Controller Library to utilize depending on what you have!
