AIO RGB Pump not lit, but Fans are

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi

 

I'm the process of making my system stable, and bought this new cooler:

Cooler Master Masterliquid ml360p silver.

I have a Asus crosshair viii hero Motherboard

 

I wanted to avoid using the included Master Cooler controller, and just use ASUS AURA to set the lights. 

The motherboard have 2 ADD_Gen2 ports, witch I think is for LED Stripes. 

I've used both ports for this cooler, one for the fans, and one for the pump. 

 

But only the fans light up, and seems controllable from AURA software. 

The pump does not light up. 

 

Is it not possible to do it this way ?

what are my options ?

some pumps use the same power source as the rgb, so if you turn off rgb at the power source for rgb you effectively stopped the flow of water.

sure the water in the rad is cool, but the water above the cpu won't be.

What motherboard do you have?

 

I have a ML240R, one plug off the AIO goes to you PUMP header, and the other goes to the RGB Controller that comes with the AIO. Then from there you connect your RGB Controller to your Mobo via USB 2.0, etc.

the pump should have an argb plug and a pump plug same with the fans a plug for fans and a plug for the argb on the fans

 

if it still don't work could be dead (as cooler master stuff is shit) or its not compatible

Cooler Master AIOs plug into the RGB light controller then from their to your Mobo.

Thanks for your feedback.

 

I'll look more into after work. 

 

I do have two wires from the pump, one is going to the AIO pump header. the other is going to one of these ADD_Gen2 headers. It will not fit over the headers just saying RGB Header, because they are 4 pins, and the pump aRGB plug only have 3.

I gave the controller a shot, but PC wouldn't boot, so i guess i did it wrong. 

 

It is a mess. Billion wires, and half of it is optional. 

Is the SATA Power required to make the controller work, or can it draw power from other plugs, like the one saying MB ADD  5V, or MB 12V.

Sata power was necessary.

 

I think i got it all working now. 

 

Controller module have usb, sata power, and two rgb connections, one from pump, and one from fan. 

 

pump is also connected to aio pump header on motherboard

fans is also connect to cpu fan header on motherboard

 

Now just to put my pc back togeather again. 

 

Thanks for you inputs.
