P400 case with Asus Formula?

Chillsabre

Does anyone know if the P400 can be connected to the RGB header on the Asus Formula to allow control of the RGB through the case LED control and/or to synchronyze with the Asus Aura RGB control software?

I was planning on getting the Formula with the 1080 Strix OC to synchronize lighting and was wondering if this case (or the Enthoo Luxe) could work in this way.

the Luxe, EVolv tempered glass (the one you should get) and P400 will work with aura. as for a guy who buys a very expensive motherboard and a very cheap case to put it in, don't be that guy.

I am just looking for a case that will work with the RGB header.

I am just not sure which cases can benefit from this at this point if any.

Also, the Evolv is out of stock in Canada.

It does seem like the best option available.

Now the last thing I am waiting on is seeing the actual stats of the 1080 Strix OC as far as OC headroom and temperature goes.
