Cablemod WideBeam LED strip compatiblity

Thinking about picking up a led strip here: https://store.cablemod.com/product/cablemod-widebeam-magnetic-rgb-led-strip/

It says Asus Aura compatible but I'm using an Asrock board with an RGB header, is this strip still compatible?

Which ASRock board? The strip looks like regular 12v-B-R-G pinout. The pinout on ASUS boards appear to be 12v-G-R-B. So, the adapter they are including appears to just flip the blue and green wires so the colors are correct.

I checked at least one ASRock board and the header looked like it was 12v-G-R-B. In this case using the ASUS adapter would work for ASRock as well. But it won't hurt anything without it. Just that the blue and green colors would be flipped.

The board I've got on hand is this one: https://www.asrock.com/MB/AMD/Fatal1ty%20B450%20Gaming-ITXac/index.asp

I checked again and it's indeed GRB, thanks for the helpful information :)
