RGB Connections Questions
« on: 12-June-18, 23:47:10 »

Hello, I have an X470 Gaming Plus Board, and want to connect LED RGB Strips and Fans, which are not at the Compatibility List at Mystic Light.

I do not know much about the "devices". They have a 4 Pin RGB Connector, and Fans do have 4 Pin RGB Connector + 3 Pin PWM Connector.
Currenty, they are connected to a prebuilt-in RGB+PWM circuit board. But it has only 2 prebuilt in effects. I want to do something like music sync.

Can I simply connect the 4 pin RGB Connectors to the JRGB COnnectors at the Mainboard, and the 3 Pin PWM Connectors to the 4 Pin System Fan Connectors at the Mainboard?

Is this possible, even without having the devices or Brand written on the Compatibility List? And if this is possible, will I be able, to use all Effects, like Music Sync?

If you have an answer, please give me your answers to every point that I have written, so I can know what Im dealing with.

Thank you for reading!

Hi, thank you for your answer.

I'm not sure what you could mean, but if youre talking about something like an RGB Controller, like the Corsair Commander Pro: I dont use it. I want to connect the fans with a raw 4pin RGB Connector. I know I cant connect all, but first I want just to connect the ones that I really see.

If youre tlaking about the prebuilt in backplate, it is a simple "nobrand" one, which was delivered with the case. On it, all the RGB things and Fans are connected, and some more stuff. The board is connected at the Power, via Floppy, and at a System Fan Port at the Mainboard. But I want to directly connect them to the board, because of eventually Mystic Light, and because of at the current state the RPM in the Bios switched from 0 to 1000 to 2000 like every second. I dont know if it is because of 3 pin (PWM?, or virtual PWM per board?), or because of the 3rd party board. But I would like to change it.

 If you mean the RGB Strips: I dont know anything about it, and couldnt find it. I just know it has an 4pin RGB Connector, and a 3 Pin PWM Fan Connector, on the prebuilt plate it says something like RGB+PWM Board.

ok you will probably need a RGB splitter (RGB header should be able to use around 4 of them before it reaches its limit!)

as for the fans them self you can connect them directly to the motherboard!
