How do I hook up the thermaltake riing to my motherboard?

 Share

Hello,

 

So I just got the thermaltake riing rgb for my pc. It comes with a controller but I dont know where it plug into my motherboard. Can it even fit in my motherboard? My motherboard is the Asrock b450 pro. It is a 5 pin connector. Do I just need to get another fan? I was going to put it on my radiator. 

 

Here is a link to the fan if you guys need it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B014QW98UK/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It should be able to, does your motherboard have USB 2.0? If so plug it into that, at least that is where mine went.

The box attaches to any fan header and then you plug your fan into the box.  You can attach the fan to a fan header but you have to align the slots on the header as it has five pin holes and one won't be used.

the 4 pin connector from the fan splitter box goes onto the motherboard for pwm control, from there you can connect all the fans in the splitter

So I wont need to use all 5 pins on the plug? That is what I was confused about. All my USB 2.0 ports are 4 pin I believe.

Send a picture of the header on the fan/fan hub

Ok so there should be a 3 or 4 pin header on your motherboard that they should fit into, I'm not 100% sure though as I have never seen that before, try gently pushing it onto a fan header.

I dont have my motherboard hooked up right now. I am jsut waiting for a couple parts to come in. Reading from what people are saying and youtube videos though I can not find a specific place to put it.I have looked all over my mobo and I am not sure. Honestly probably better to wait but I would just like to get everything setup and ordered before I get everything and find out it does not work.

I'm honestly not sure but it kind of looks like it would go on a fan header.

So I found the specifications on amazon 

Specifications: 

  • P/N: CL-F042-PL12SW-A
  • Fan Dimensions: 120 x 120 x 25 mm
  • Started Voltage: 9.0 V
  • Rated Voltage: 12 V
  • Rated Current: 0.21 A
  • Power Input: 2.52 W
  • Fan Speeds: Speed Mode 1: (800 ~ 1500 RPM) Speed Mode 2: (400 ~ 1000 RPM)
  • Max. Air Pressure: 0.57 ~ 2.01 mm-H2O
  • Max. Air Flow: 22.14 ~ 40.6 CFM
  • Noise Level: 18.5 ~ 26.4 dB-A
  • Bearing Type: Hydraulic Bearing
  • Life expectation: 40,000 hrs, 25°C
  • Connector: 4-pin PWM (Controller To M/B)
  • Weight: 161.1g
  • LED Light Modes: (Solid Colors: Red -> Blue -> White -> Green) -> LED off -> 256 Color Cycle

And I noticed this. "Connector: 4-pin PWM (Controller To M/B)" So that means that the controller should plug into a 4 pin header on the motherboard.

Do you see the lines on the top of the connector -- those will line up with the fan header on your motherboard which will align it so that the four pins will be used and that one last hole on the fan connector will go unused and you won't have RGB.  You will need to use the box to use the RGB.  I have 3 of those Riing fans and the box which came with my Thermaltake Water 3.0 Riing RGB 360 AIO.

Yeah the two notches at the top of the connector are going to slide into a tab next to one of the fan headers on the board, sorry if thats confusing, I'm not the best at explaining things.
