Thermaltake Water 3.0 360 ARGB Sync AIO CPU Cooler Z390 compatibility?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just bought a Thermaltake CL-W234-PL12SW-A Water 3.0 360 ARGB Sync AIO CPU Cooler after seeing good reviews, to go with my newly purchased Gigabyte z390 Aorus Ultra MB.

All the fans are working, everything appears great, but for the life of me I can't see how to plug the RGB header into the MB.  The instructions (from the AIO) say to use the 3 pin DVG plug and plug this into the DVG addressable header on the MB, however, there doesn't appear to be one.  There are 4 pin addressable headers, and I do have a 4 pin cable that was labelled for use with ASROCK, ASUS, etc, MBs, but I am not sure if plugging this in will cause damage (the cable has a + symbol on it, leading me to believe it is power related, whereas the MB does not).  

MB manual can be found here: http://download.gigabyte.asia/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_z390-aorus-ultra_1001_190219_e.pdf


Do I need an adapter cable, or another solution?  Is there another solution?

4 pin isnt ARGB compatible... 4 pin is just normal 12 volt RGB. You will need a ARGB hub to work with your 3 pin, 5v ARGB fans.

Thanks for the reply.  Is there a hub that you would recommend with the Thermaltake fans?  I still need another 3 fans for the case, and I don't care if they are RGB or not, so maybe an integrated fan and RGB controller for the 6 fans?
