Would this card be worth the 20.00USD and compatible with my board?

Recommended Posts

So I'm looking to deck out my PC in RGB, I've got one RGB header that my fans will end up going to but I'd like to also get some strips for the inside of it, like to ones made by argoo(I think that's the brand.) and I found this RGB controller card. I'm not familiar with the company so I'm not sure that I want to jump straight into it with them, or would it be better to go with some other controller? I'm using the ASUS B450M motherboard.

 

My MOBO: https://www.amazon.com/Ryzen-Gaming-Motherboard-B450M-CSM/dp/B07FKV5HWJ/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=asus+b450m+ryzen+5&qid=1578667162&s=electronics&sr=1-1

and would anyone reccomend these strips?

It’s not the board it has to be compatible with. It’s the software you’re running to do the other RGB.  I’m seeing aura synch mentioned.  The question seems to be “are these RGB thingies compatible with aura synch?”


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

i cannot recommend anything from just a picture but those rgb strips seem pretty nice actually. the ones with adhesive backing tend to fall off quite quickly in my experience. go for them! as for the card thingy, will it work? probably yes. would i use that power connector if i made it? no. you will not exceed the 1 amp current limit per channel if you use one of those rgb strips per channel i think, maybe not even with two. it will probably be fine as you will not run all 4 channels on white at all times i think. 48W of led power is stupidly bright for a pc. The connectors of the card match up with those of your motherboard i believe so that should be fine. you can however show only one color at a time so no rainbow animations but your mobo cant do that anyway i believe.

TL:DR:

led strips: They look promising! keep us updated if they are worth getting if you do get them

control thing: Power connector seems a bit small but should probably be fine. its compatible with the rest of the stuff.

So far everything I've seen is, but I was hoping to see if this would be a good idea or if anyone has a better controller to recommend that works with Aura Sync.

If I went another route controller wise, what else might you suggest? Hoping to keep everything Aura Sync. I always also thinking of either going with the Airgoos or the actual ROG Strips but I'm not honestly sure that there is much a difference that I'd get in quality https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BQ1LGZY?pf_rd_p=ab873d20-a0ca-439b-ac45-cd78f07a84d8&pf_rd_r=KMDC3DJDADVMDVR5MQH5

these strips look incompatible. it looks like you have the 12v 4 pin aurasync header not the 5v 3 pin digital aurasync one

So update on this update we are going to be going to a new MOBO because my cooler is a 5V 3-Pin and MOBO is 4-Pin, so we're gonna create our own Kit with Deep Cool on a new Strix Board
