Thermaltake Riing 12 and NZXT Hue+ Compatibility

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi All, First time poster here. 

 

I want to upgrade the airflow of my PC Case, and was looking at buying the following case fans:

 

Riing 12 LED RGB Radiator Fan Sync Edition

https://www.thermaltake.com/products-model.aspx?id=C_00003230

 

The problem I'm having is I want to be able to control the RGB lighting of the fans, but I have no RGB Header on my Motherboard (Z87 Sabertooth - https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/SABERTOOTH_Z87/specifications/). 

 

I've read on forums that people can bypass controlling RGB Fans via RGB Header by using a NZXT Hue+ https://www.nzxt.com/products/hue-plus

 

Now my question is, would I be able to control the RGB of the Thermaltake fans using the NZXT Hue+ and how would I be able to connect 6 Fans using the least amount of ports on the NZXT HuePlus?

To my knowledge you can only control the RGB of NZXT fans via NZXT hue+. If you wanna control the rgb of thermaltake's rgb fans you gotta buy their rgb controller . it can do up to 9 fans.

As mentioned in my post, I do not have a RGB Header due to my Motherboard, and the Thermaltake Sync Controller needs a 5V RGB Header. 

 

Guess I'll have to look into buying expensive NZXT Fans.

By the way quote people's replies so they get a notification for your reply.

 

There are other fan choices which don't require a RGB port, like Cooler Master. There's also corsair which is really expensive but looks the best imo(I'd choose Corsair over NZXT's fans any day, they're pretty ugly and super overpriced imo). Both of them need you to plug in the fan's PWM connector to the motherboard, then it's RGB header to the respective fan controller.

 

If you're in Southeast Asia by any chance Tecware has really cheap rgb fans and their rgb controller only needs a molex connector to power the speed and rgb, although you'd need to use a remote control provided to switch between preset colours and patterns etc. 

 

I'd recommend just getting Cooler Master since their fans and controller aren't extremely expensive. Maybe either this or this? The included controller only controls for 3 fans but only requires a USB 2.0 port on your motherboard and a SATA power connection. You can also get this splitter to control more fans.
