Argb fans suddenly don’t light up on motherboard only

Posted (edited)

Just replaced the power supply in my new build and suddenly the rgb fans no longer light up at all. I thought it was a fan/splitter issue at first, but when I plugged the argb splitter into the mini included rgb fan hub they worked just fine.

 

I’m connecting the ARGB fans into a jrainbow header onto my motherboard. It worked just fine before the psu switch. I’m just hoping there isn’t something physically wrong with the motherboard because I really don’t feel like RMAing.

 

Motherboard: Mag B560 Tomahawk Wifi (Using 2nd latest bios don’t have the name of it right mow)

Fans: PcCooler 120m Halo Frgb 3 pack

Psu: Evga Supernova 650 GT

 

Don’t know if the other specs are necessary, but I’m able to send them if needed.

Also yes I have tried both headers, using 1 ram stick, and resetting cmos.

I suspect the make/model of both the old and new PSU will be useful.  The workings of Argb isn’t an area I know much about though, so I’m basically guessing.

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

Not sure if this is enough info but…

 

The old Psu was a EVGA 650 BQ (Semi- modular bronze rated ATX) and the new one is a EVGA SuperNova 650 GT (Fully modular gold rated ATX)

 

Side note: The only reason I replaced the psu was because of the excessive fan noise.

I was able to get the fans RGB working but only if I plugged in the cable at a certain angle. A0B522B5-2C7D-40F3-B6B0-784B29FF6E66.thumb.jpeg.6538f91e95e5cb3e1f8ccab88232f742.jpegC66CBDC2-D3E4-4A07-88FC-33E5D04AA329.thumb.jpeg.175395a71ad131f6aa2eab92818e792b.jpeg

Hoping this doesnt break the pins.

Well that implies a bent or worn connector. Hopefully it’s the plug and not the motherboard.   Can you see any “bentness” visually?

Here’s what the motherboard pins look like. I don’t see any real prominent bending myself. 4C47913C-BE02-49F6-AA6B-544BF8327470.thumb.jpeg.58238c97b432c97589428494856e1312.jpegCD548B63-12C4-4A92-9B2A-F04BEAAC163E.thumb.jpeg.765d1c2fcd8cb17e6913424481b1c5fb.jpeg32A1DC1E-AD0E-4ED2-B290-C07B325C86F2.thumb.jpeg.83fd51e7b5183f102b4dca68ec505706.jpegA828E2ED-6BAC-4CA9-9C0A-75110A2140A4.thumb.jpeg.aa2019ff3c093a598d234f9e208ecd1e.jpeg

Pins appear to be in good shape so I suspect the connector.  Those are square sectional pins pins even.  Two ways to deal with that one I know of.  Replace the connector or put in an “unnecessary” extension that the connector will attach to.  Then you have a new connector to put into the board.  If the fan is still under warranty replacement may be the cheapest option.  They’re the ones who attached a bum connector.  They can take it up with their supplier.
