Need advise on Fan control

Nauthes

The build below is based on a bitwit video i saw a while back. I saw this video and i was like "this, this is my dream build"

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgGg7R4kbT4

Sadly its jut a montage so he doesnt go into much detail on the build itself. I cant figure out how he controlled the fan's RGB. I thought these fans needed a hue+ but i dont see it anywhere in the build Do you guys have any idea if it can be controlled from the motherboard or the cases fan controller?

Sorry i think my question was mostly.

Do i need a hue+ to control the fans ive already selected or not.

Their website says "CAM-powered features simplify setup and control of RGB lighting and fans"

but i wanted to be sure in case ive misunderstood. They say "simplify" but knowing these companies i wouldnt put it past them to still require a hue+

Sorry you still seem to be missing the point. Im not sure if im making it clear lol.

Im looking to know if i actually need the hue+ or if the NZXT N7 motherboard will already do everything the hue+ does.

I know where to find it. Im also aware of how it works with the fans. :)
