I was wondering if I can use the connectors on the JRGB1 for the CPU cooler in order for Mystic Light Sync to control it? Last time I plugged it in through the pins it didn’t work. This is the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML120L RGB. This one here


I tried it when I first built the PC but the colors never came on. Is it not possible or? It’s working through the molex connector/controller though.

Here are all the possible methods with MSI mainboards and RGB lighting:

Your board only supports the two on the left, since it does not have the JCORSAIR1 connector.
So it supports RGB (non-addressable) as well as A-RGB devices.

To sync it all, i think you have to use the included 3-to-1-RGB-cable:



Did you use it? Does it at least work with the Cooler Master software then?

I have that cable and when I plugged it into the JRGB1 pins it didn’t light up. Maybe it wasn’t fully connected properly? Since those little connectors are flimsy and it disconnected on me before. I can try it again when my NVME gets in. Since then I’ll have a reason to open the PC. Right now it’s connected through molex with the RGB controller device connected.

It could also be that you first have to enable it via software, meaning that it's off by default when connected to the mainboard. Just a possibility, i don't have anything connected there on my board.

That could be. You never know. I‘ll give it another shot later and let you know for sure. It says it should work with Mystic Light Sync. Not sure if Cooler Master has a software for it though.

It worked as soon as I plugged it in. The reason must have been because I never connected it properly. The pin holes for the 3 to 1 cable are flimsy and it doesn’t sit very snug. Either way, I got it up and running, I’ll be trying it out with Mystic Sync as soon as Windows reinstalls.
