i am a bit at a lost but i suspect im close to the right answer but based on the marketing material i should be able to do it.
Case is : MPG GUNGNIR 111M
motherboard : MPG Z490 GAMING EDGE WIFI

now the confusing part is that the fans i have are connected i believe some where to a 4 pin RGB header there are 3x 4 pin connectors connected currently to a splinter which i suspect goes to rgb header 1 and what looks like 3 pin molex as well im guessing for tact and power.
does this case need a header to sort out this mess for mystic light or should i just swap fans and get a icue commander pro to handle the 4 pin rgb and 3 pin fans.
the manual say my case led switch is not for the m series yet there is a 5wled switch so why include it if this variant wont use it.

i have read i need a hub and some say i dont need the hub can some one sort it out.

Just leave it there. The LED switch is for 110R since it comes with 4 ARGB fans.
And a hub will be good if you want to add more RGB things, since your motherboard only has 2x 4-pin RGB headers but your case has 3x RGB fans.

so the auto rgb is controlled thur the msi motherboard or header directly then? and the fans are controlled via the pwm 4 pin header via the 3 pin molex. even thou the 3 pin sort of looks like a 3 pin argb or are they the same connector. if the fans where pwn id be fine i just dont want to risk plugging a possible 3 pin arg into the wrong port the cable is not labeled well to ensure i dont fry something

the 3 pin ARGB that hooks up to a JRainbow Header and you have 2 on your board.

1 is near the USB Headers at the bottom of the board
2 is is up in the top right next to JRGB2

the JRainbow have a missing pin out the 4 and can only fit the connector one way as they are keyed by the missing pin
