Is there anyway to use 4pin 12v rgb header at 5v argb port on motherboard?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello there, I just noticed that I have 4 pin 12v header on my Cryorig C7 RGB and my board Strix B360-i have only 1 argb 5v port.

 

When i plugged it in, the cooler only show default color and cannot be changed using Aura Sync software.

Is there anyway to use the argb port to control or sync the cooler rgb? Maybe by using some sort of connector or hub or converter?

you will need a 12v rgb usb controller to use it.

I already bought Deepcool RGB Convertor but sadly, it still require me to put the 12v 4 pin into the motherboard, which my motherboard doesn't have. I have the Strix B360-i and it only have 3 pin ARGB port.

You will have to use a controller independent of your motherboard. You can not but a 4 pin into a three pin header. The are not compatible. So for you the answer is no, you can't do it
