 the Ek loop connect would be exactly what you need. It uses USB and it's own software

Hi guys!

I have preordered the Evolv X and it should be delivered by the end of this month.

I'm looking into ways to control the digital RGB strips of the case.

The case will house two systems, one based on an AsRock AB350I Gaming ITX motherboard, and the other one on an Asus Maximus VIII Hero motherboard.

The AsRock has an RGB header but it's a 12V one (for non-addressable RGB strips).

So my question is : is there a product on the market which would be either USB- or PCI-E-based and which would let me control these digital RGB strips?

 

So far I haven't seen any, but given how few motherboards actually have 3-pin DRGB headers, it really bogs me that there aren't any such solutions on the market.

 

Could you guys please suggest ways to achieve this? :)

 

Thank you in advance!

 

Cheers from France

Could these products combined do the trick?

 

USB addressable RGB controller https://www.amazon.com/ALITOVE-Controller-Individually-Addressable-Programmable/dp/B0792SFHJ4?th=1

 

Phanteks digital RGB controller https://www.phanteksusa.com/collections/accessories/products/digital-controller-hub

 

USB header to USB A cable https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-Motherboard-4-Pin-Header-USBMBADAPT/dp/B000IV6S9S

 

Edit : I believe not, since the controller seems not to be able to be controlled through software.

Sooo... I have found ONE PCI-E based addressable RGB controller. It's a Lian Li one and it's included with the "Strimer 24 pin" kit... which is very expensive considering I'm only interested in the controller...

 

Edit : PCI-E is just the form-factor but that model does not connect in any way to the data slots of the mobo.

It seems there is no such product on the market yet... :(

I wonder how people are going to control their A-RGB lightings with not-last-gen motherboards...

the ek loop is buggy and expensive

 

Razer Chroma Addressable RGB Controller 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08KC2VZ2V/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

 

its 40 bucks and controls up to 6 ARGBs

 

well up to 80 split offs on each and no more than 240 total but that would all be daisy chained stuff that would change all of the ones connected to a single one at once
