  1. the mb cable only says it works with Asus Aura, MSI Mystic Light or Gigabyte RGB Fusion. so your right. i have an asrock mb and i used there rgb software and its sux. im guessing the other mb software also sux. so imo a controller of some sort is best. sound like corsair is the best. thermaltake is more simpler. i have not used nzxt, cam hue. i used both cooler master stuff and there stuff is just sux software and hardware both products i got both have problems.
  2. don't no if this will work with ek. don't no what connector ek uses. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Corsair-RGB-to-Aura-Mystic-Light-A-RGB-Adapter/372521827376?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D0760839787954b688b8b6cc531b533e1%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D372548214612%26itm%3D372521827376%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2481888&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A6369355e-c7c3-11e9-85d2-74dbd180cdf8|parentrq%3Acc6c8a7616c0a4b7fc8be616ffe78d71|iid%3A1 there also an jst-sm 3pin and 4pin rgb to corsair to control throw connectors as well. (so phanteck, lilanli rgb 24 pin cable, deep cool, to name a few or rgb strip alos can have the jst-sm connectors. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Corsair-RGB-to-JST-Addressable-RGB-Adapter/372551535271?hash=item56bdcd4aa7:m:me8mpAey-z_jyZnTsBD2DZg
  3. ya ask around on the forms. you can buy just the hub but its pricey. i think it was listed at $20+ can don't no if shipping was induced. https://www.corsair.com/ca/en/Categories/Products/Custom-Cooling/Accessories/CORSAIR-RGB-Fan-LED-Hub/p/CO-8950020 https://www.amazon.ca/Corsair-CO-8950020-RGB-Cfan-Compatible/dp/B075GWMJ68 https://www.cdw.com/product/corsair-rgb-fan-led-hub/4737076
  4. https://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=168504
  5. oh i think i no what your asking. the fans do use a 4pin but there 5v argb. you attach the fan to the hub. then that cable to the hub to your mb. i think the guy dose sell a cable that alows you to skip the hub but then you would need a spliter if you have more then 1 fan so... ied just just the hub if you have it. also the hub provides power insted of pulling power from the mb. if you jsut read the description of the ebay add it tell you what it dose and what you need and what dosent work so read it.
  6. by 4pin rgb aio you mean the rgb on the pump? there are many rgb 12v fans out there. https://www.amazon.ca/DEEPCOOL-Waterblock-Motherboard-Controller-Compatible/dp/B07H29YRYH/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=rgb+aio&qid=1566612697&s=electronics&sr=1-3
  7. Corsair's LL120/140s  use 3pin argb 5v connectors but they all have corsair connectors on it. only corsair 4pin 12v is the sp rgb fans https://www.amazon.ca/Corsair-SP120-120mm-Performance-CO-9050061-WW/dp/B01LHYI2PW/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=corsair+rgb+sp&qid=1566610673&s=electronics&sr=1-1 no idea what Aquacomputer Splitty4 is. i do no they do support corsair rgb stuff but i don't no what is what its vary confusing and extremely expensive. https://www.aquatuning.us/water-cooling/monitoring/controllers-accessories/23656/aquacomputer-rgbpx-splitty4 looks like that the same conetor but for 4pin only so only the sp fans wil work as far as i no. but you still would need a way to hook it to something not only that it will cost more in shipping then just buying the cables off eaby.. that ebay cable is the cheapest pre made cable out there. the only other option is you make your own cables. you would have to buy a crimper and have a soderiron and solder. probably need heat shrink, then find some shady Chinese seller and hope you even get the item in 4 moths if at all. so safe to say the cable look cheap. other option is to cut the cable off the wired remote and get a rgb connector. (its really hard to find a 3 pin connector so a 4 pin will work just DONT cornet it to the 4 pin header on the mb)
  8. looks like its 3amp 36watts at 12 volts for the header. the strip is 12volts and is 5 meter long 500cm 16 feet. what i dont no is how many led per meter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZZ6ZlAFPls https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GK2KaBSNwRk
  9. i found this in the manul This connector supports 5050 RGB multi-color LED strips (12V/G/R/B) with the maximum power rating of 3A (12V). Please keeping the LED strip shorter than 2 meters to prevent dimming.yAlways turn off the power supply and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before installing or removing the RGB LED strip.yPlease use MSI’s software to control the extended LED strip
  10. well put it this way if your puling more power then what it can handle. i don't no if you are pulling more or not. finding out how much amps or watts the header can give would be a good start. i no that 4pin pwm header were most likely rated at 1amp i don't no about the rgb. then you need to find out how many amps your rgb strip uses as well.
  11. well its up to you. at some point it will stop working.
  12. well there are a number of ways of doing it. there the 12v, 5v and 7v, molex to 5v 7v 12v noctua fan controller noctua Low-Noise adaptor 3pin low hi hub pci pot 3pin low miedem hi 3pin rpm controller 5.25 bay controller 3pin to 4pin pwm diy https://www.ozeros.com/img/guias/2011/junio/Molex/Molex.png
  13. like this hd120 in the front and gentle typhoons in the back... could also just add an rgb gill to a good rad fan too.
  14. this might help. https://www.quietpc.com/casefans
  15. safe to say all marketing on the box is un true. all of them say there fan is the best and can out perform the leading brand. and there are many different markets for the "best " fan.
  16. if the filter is restrictive if will make more noise. if that header is pwm controlled it cant control the fan as its only 3 pin. there is a 3pin fan to 4pin pwm controller or you could find a reducer for voltage insted of 12v set it to 7v or 5v. i read that some cheap 200mm fans can brake them self's.
  17. looks like its a non pwm fan so they used a 3 pin.
  18. if it dose not have an 5v argb or 12v rgb connector then you need a controller that connects by usb. or cheaper would be one with a remote.
  19. first would have bean way cheaper to just buy a argb strip. as you could have just sold the cooler and got a strip. probly going to need pic's of the strip frist. argb is normally 5v. so you probably cooked it.
  20. you have a pic of it? i would try add a 120mm if posable to the front. posably on the top if there room and if you not using all the pci slot you could do 1 on the bottome and mybe taller feet if needed. but i pic of the case outside and inside to give us ideas would help a ton.
  21. there a few more tricks yopu can do. for the front end cables power rest led so on you can send then under the mb then out the bottom to plug in. ya using zip ties to make the cable tight would be the best you can do.
  22. this is not helpfull has nothing to do with the question of going from 3pin 5v to 4pin 12v....
