I purchased an HP Envy 750se from Costco some years ago and then moved it all into a new case. I would like to add some RGB lighting but am not sure what the RGB header is on the motherboard. I believe the mb is a Pegatron IPM17-TP but I can't find a manual for it anywhere on the Internet. The header says RGB_LED and is 4 pins but it looks different than others I searched on the Internet and I can't even tell if it is 12 volts. I took a picture to upload here but can't seem to figure out how to add a picture to my post. I did find a thread on the HP forum that shows a picture of the mb and it is labeled as a "lightening header." Any help would be appreciated.

Usually these pins are the 5050 type RGB. Not sure about your board but you can always check the voltage with the help of a multi meter and if it 12V then you can use the 4 pin connector that comes with most 12V 5050 RGB LED Strips. Although reading the manual/datasheet could be more helpful.
