Corsair H115i RGB Platinum question

 Share

Hi guys,

 

Posting from work atm. I just had a question....

 

I just put together my new computer and i have the AIO in the title. My question is when i did a test boot powering on without my monitor.. Only 1 of the ML pro fans had RGB illumination on start.

 

So i thought hmm... i mustve screwed up on the wiring. I double check and watch the corsair how-to video on youtube. The platinum has 4 pin fan headers and fan RGB headers attached to the pump. I made sure

 

That fan 1 and 2 are both properly plugged in to their respective PWN and lighting connectors...ok. So i try another boot and now neither of the fans illuminate with lighting. Both fans spin, so i know they have power and are working, but no

 

LED's are automatically on at boot. So im wondering if anyone else has this AIO and provide an answer? Its weird because i saw 1 illuminate on the first boot, and then neither on the 2nd boot. Im going home to hook up a monitor, and install

 

windows tonight. The USB header is into my motherboard from the pump head, and yes the pump head LED's work and they look nice. So because i dont have an external lighting controller, could it be that the LED's need to be turned on/set in

 

the corsair software in windows??

Most likely. It probably just needs to sense Corsair link or iCue running. If it was plugged directly into the MoBo they would light up on start up. Weird they don’t though

I have a Corsair h115i PRO, non platinum..as well as RAM RGB PRO sticks. Yeah Corsair is one of the best component companies out their but their software is straight trash. 

Icue/link mostly work for the RAM only and it chooses when it wants to be seen in eithers software. so I'm usually running my sticks at the same colors while my AIO does whatever it wants XD

yea my brother has just the pro model, but he has a lighting node pro so yes his LED's were on from the first boot. Im thinking with this new platinum model controlling the LED's and fan from the pump head wiring, it may need the software.
