High Static Pressure RGB Fans Compatable with Asus Mobo?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just upgraded by build to the 011 Dynamic and I feel like I'm missing out by not having RGB fans on my radiator on the right. Perusing Amazon reviews, it seems that most RGB fans aren't compatible with Asus Aurora. My questions is-What fans can I get and what setup do I need to do to have high static pressure RGB fans that sync with my motherboard (Crosshair VI WiFi)? Thanks in advance!

 

(ignore by build at the bottom. I need to update)


My PC:

Ryzen 7 1700x | EK A240R CPU/GPU Custom Loop Kit w/360mm rad add-on | PowerColor RX Vega 56 | Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero WiFi | 16GB DDR4-3000 memory | 256GB Samsung 960 EVO NVME SSD | 512GB Sandisk SSD-Plus SATA SSD | WD Blue 1Tb 7200rpm HDD | LianLi PC-011 Dynamic | CoolerMaster V750 80 Plus Gold | 3x Noctua NF-F12 | 6x EK Vardar 120mm

 

My Peripherals:

Nixeus 27" 1440p 144Hz Freesync monitor | Asus 24" 1080p 75Hz Freesync monitor | Corsair Pro M65 mouse | Corsair STRAFE Mechanical Keyboard (Cherry Reds) | Creative Sound BlasterX H7 headset

 

At Work:

Cooler master and Thermaltake both make fans compatible. I believe only the Thermaltake riing fans have a staic pressure optimized fan though.

Corsair fans should be good.

Is it possible to get Corsair to play nice with the Asus mobo? Will I have to use 2 separate RGB apps?

Corsair fans are proprietary, oyu will have to use 2 separate apps.

Reviews for the Riing fans say they don't work with Aurora? 

Thats because people dont pay attention, you need to use the Thermaltake fan controller ;)

if you want both static pressure and RGB you could just get some Corsair SP fan's and a RGB strip thats Asus Aura competible... it would be like 100x less hassle

Could I just add the strips to the Vardars that I am using now?

Yeah, that was my approach when I was in a 240. In the 011, though, it just looks so empty..
