Need help with CableMod 60cm RGB LED strip

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everyone.

 

I need help trying to get a CableMod 60cm addressable RGB led strip to work with a Gigabyte b450m ds3h motherboard.

 

When I plug it in I only get one LED showing up in a bright blue and nothing else. I can’t change it via rgb fusion or the bios.

 

This is my second LED strip from CableMod as the first was dead on arrival and CableMod was happy to send out a replacement but now I’m not sure what to do. 

 

Thanks in advance :)

You may have just killed that LED strip your board does not have a 3 pin addressable RGB header it is a 4 pin analog header (12V).

... really. I even contacted cablemod to clarify after the first strip didn’t work and they said that it was compatible with my board. As did the company I purchased the strip off of :/

 

thanks for for the response. Just not what I wanted to here xD

This is your board correct?

From what I see in the photos there are 4 pins on the header which would indicate it to be an analog header.

@hodge22 yeah that strip is going to be dead now as you're trying to power a 5v LED with a 12v header. Addressable LEDs require the 3pin/5v addressable header, you are using a 4pin/12v standard header though which isn't compatible.

 

The compatible LEDs for your 4pin/12v header are these ones here:
