  1. It depends on how you plan to wire them but there are controllers that have multiple leads for controlling two reels of LED strips and matching both of them together. What you will require if you want to run a very long singular strip is a signal and power injector such as this as 5M is pretty much the limit for most LED strips. For example: https://www.amazon.com/WenTop-300leds-Controller-Bedroom-Lighting/dp/B07DDBTZZJ/ref=sr_1_4 https://www.amazon.com/SUPERNIGHT-Repeater-Signal-Amplifier-Strip/dp/B00E4JQDKE/ref=sr_1_5
  2. You have a 4 pin RGB header on that board, some decently well regarded LED strips are one from Cable Mod. https://cablemod.com/product/cablemod-widebeam-magnetic-rgb-led-strip-30cm/
  3. Splitters will not allow for individual LED control but will essentially have the devices match each other. If you want to have the ability to control every single LED they need to be dasiy chain together. Separate channels essentially more headers allow for the ability to have different lighting zones or chains of ARGB lights.
  4. It could be due to the change in pH or the fluid breaking down, but I have seen before where the copper ions from components in the loop make their way into the fluid have deposited themselves on top of the nickel plating itself. That tends to occur with any fluids as it ages since the water will overtime take in metal ions. With some elbow grease and polishing it can be removed.
  5. It's not recommended to to use acidic cleaners on nickel plating as it can cause it to flake or corrode. You are best to use an non-abrasive metal polish to remove any deposits or corrosion. Losing the nickel plating on the waterblock isn't a problem be aesthetically it will not look as nice.
  6. Welcome to the Forums! For new components I usually don't recommend to use vingear but to just use tap water to flush and rinse the rads out multiple times to ensure nothing is left from manufacturing. At the end you will want to use distilled water to do the last few flushes to remove any minerals or contaminates that may be left from the tap water before assembly.
  7. Cable Mod seems to have some pretty nice selection for andoized washers if you are still searching: https://store.cablemod.com/product/cablemod-anodized-aluminum-washers-m4-40-pack/
  8. Welcome to the Forums! Long as they are the correct addressable (3 pin) or analog (4 pin) LED standard and you do not run a strip that is too long on a single header it will work. You must ensure your header is either an addressable version or analog version before getting the LED strips.
  9. If you are using the original 6-32 bolts a metric washer that is M4 would fit. #6 bolts are 0.13” or approx 3.3mm in diameter.
  10. That can not be done as the threads per inch do not match. You will need to retap the holes for the next size up metric thread. Corsair uses 6-32 threaded fasteners so your next size for metric retapping would be M4.
  11. Usually 1/8" or 3mm is enough for most application and still easy to bend. For logos it depends on how many layers are stacking to create it, but I'd go with the same thickness if it's just one layer.
  12. The size is not really an issue given it's weight limit which is more important, just use judgement to see how sturdy the mount is and ensure that it is securely well to a solid desk surface.
  13. Please keep discussion related to the original post at hand. -Thread Cleaned-
  14. What you require to get the Corsair fan to run with their RGB software is the lighting node pro and the RGB hub. Do not connect anything from the fans lightning to your motherboard they will kill the LEDs. https://www.corsair.com/ca/en/Categories/Products/Accessories-|-Parts/iCUE-CONTROLLERS/CORSAIR-Lighting-Node-PRO/p/CL-9011109-WW
  15. What Corsair RGB fans do you have exactly? The motherboard's 5 pin RGB header is not the same as a 4 pin PWM fan control and 4 pin RGB control line they are two completely separate and independent entities. Corsair requires the use of their own dedicated RGB controllers if you want to have RGB LED lighting, the 4 pin PWM fan portion will work with any motherboard fan header.
