it CAN be the controller. but he also might have too many devices on it. 
like i said. i cant find the specs for it. but i guess its close or the same as the h500m controller. and if it is he is 4 leds from the limit..

Hope that page helps.

 

Also not sure, but 4 leds from limit? It should take it but maybe its not as good as i thought xD

ya that's another problem they dont tell what the limit of the controller is how many on 1 port or in total... we do have specs of the corsair controller thow but you can also pull 5v from the psu instead of the controller to bypass the limit but that's diy

@MultiGamerClubYou wouldn’t have SignslRGB installed in the background by any chance? I’ve tried this program recently & although it was great for syncing colours across my system, one of the issues that made me disable it (for now), is that it made my fans flicker on every startup of the PC…I’d need to disable/enable the flickering RGB device to fix it every time.

 

Also, does your flickering happen whether you have static colours, or only ‘motion’ pattern colours? I ask because I have two 3 x Arctic Bionix P120 ARGB fan chains, & on each chain, the third fan reacts weird only to rainbow patterns (which I don’t use anyway). If I use two fans in the chains, they’re ok. So maybe the motion pattern is asking too much of the number of fans you have & they freak out (as @NorKris& @thrasher_565mention above).

well to be fair the controller is rated for 1 fan per port so anything above this is bonus. some times it will say how many leds per port. if its an artic controller its been deigned for artic fans and how many leds they have per fan. some controller well only have 4 ports 4 say can do 12 fans well that would mane you can use a splitor and hook 3 fans to one port. 

 

if you want each fan to do its own thing then you need each fan off of an mb header or on a controller that has many ports that can be controlled differently like corsair can do 12 fans wit the pro and 6 with the core the core xt is confusing as it can do 6 pulse a another 6 buy the hub but i dont no how thows are controlled so safe to say 6 to 7???

 

if you want em all to sync up and dont care about each fan doing its own thing you can daisy chain em up to the aloud port number of fans or use a powered splitter.

I notice @MultiGamerClub’s motherboard has the below bling ports…

  • 2x 4-pin RGB LED connectors
  • 2x 3-pin RAINBOW LED connectors

So maybe he could ease the demand on the controller by connecting 1 or 2 groups of 3 daisy-chained fans direct to the motherboard’s (Rainbow) LED headers.

Ok

i have done the testing. bad news..
the flickering happens even with 1 device connected.. however..

it only happens with the controllers on the right side. they are different from the controller on the left
controller on the left is 100% blinkfree

 

so if u have the "almost see through controller"  😞

@MultiGamerClubThermalright just released White and Black ARGB versions of their better TL-B12 fans. They should be extremely competitive to Arctic P12 ARGB 🙂

No i dont use that software, never heard of it actually until now.

 

Only happens when there are multiple colours in use, usually never when its a static color.. But some patterns or modes in the static colours fails too.. and flickers.. So for all i know..

Mine's solid, but you can kind of see through it with the lights on in the darkness.. But its solid so 😐

Will test a bit and see what happens.

When these comes to norway, i have my doubts our taxes wont eat through them like they do with noctua fans and arctic fans regardless of price..

 

Coolermaster and arctic seems to be the only fans thats not overpriced to some extent, been a while since i searched for better fans tho.

 

Im leaning more over to ML120's from corsair, but their not avaible in white sadly.

 

Will actually have to google a bit on the Thermalright fans haha xD

Rip color, fans are spassing out even more now after i tried cabling one out.. This is turning out to be a troubleshooting thing. Not sure if i ask it to be moved?

(Thanks mods for moving the thread.)

 

Anyway i think im just gonna rma the fans and get a brand new H150i corsair 360mm rgb cooler for 150$..

 

As it turns out, if i switch to the corsair cooler.. my brother wants my old 360mm haha, its kinda funny.

 

Ah well, it works out in the end i hope.

 

Looking at ordering 6x ML120's used from a guy in Olso (our capital), so maybe i'll just switch anyway.

 

No idea if i'll use the fans if they continiue to bug out.. Gonna test them out seperatly tho once their out of my case.

This is taking a weird turn, I'm not getting a signal on my monitor..

 

Oof. Maybe my g7 is dying again for the fifth time lol.

 

The jrainbow gives normal color on the top fans, but the pc won't even show any signal so.. Guess I'm starting to dive into uncertain territories.
