First Time AIO Liquid Cooling + RGB Will these work?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP



this is my first time adding any type of RGB and Liquid Cooling into my PC, as I do not have the cash flow or knowledge for a custom loop currently, I'm looking into adding these into my build, but before I buy I want to be confident in what I am getting and if it'll be compatible with my motherboard/case, I already verified that these should be Gigabyte Aorus compatible to line up with my GPU.

Existing PC Build:




Option's I'm looking into adding.
Deepcool (RGB 200 Pro) Motherboard Controlled Addressable RGB LED Strip (5V 3Pin)

DEEPCOOL CF120 3in1, Customizable Addressable RGB LED Lighting, MB SYNC by 5V ADD-RGB Header, SYNC with Other ADD-RGB Devices, Cable Controller Available, 3 120mm PWM Fans

DEEPCOOL Captain 240PRO Addressable RGB AIO CPU Liquid Cooler, Cable Controller and 5V ADD RGB 3-Pin Motherboard Control, Intel 115X/2066 and AMD TR4/AM4 Compatible, 3-Year Warranty


Could anyone give me advise if these would be the correct type of stuff to purchase for this, or if i should make some sort of modifications to my plan here.


Thank you!

There is no rgb header on that board.

You can always use and external controller. When I get home ill link you some recommendations

Thank you so much, from my understanding I believe the cooler I posted has a controller to be used with motherboards without the 3 pin, and accepts additional hookups, but if not I’ll gladly order an external controller to set it up. I appreciate the help!


my motherboard does have a JLED1 which is supposedly the 12v RGB Header

I wpuld use the captain 240.

I have one. None rgb version. its decent.

It does have a inline controller. Just keep in mind that controllers have less features then using software. And each companies lighting effects maybe be different.
