MSI Core Frozr XL RGB not lighting up
« on: 17-July-19, 05:47:37 »

 i bough a cpu cooler yesterday.
 msi core frozr xl
 I connected the LED wire to the USB2 and the LED turned on. Then I saw a RGB HEADER on my motherboard and I thought I could connect the wire to it. then I plugged the wire into it and LED did not light up again. Then I wanted to connect the wire to usb2 again, but the lights did not light up any more.
 mother board : asus prime z370-a II

The LEDs will never turn on again as you killed it... The Core Frozer XL has an USB header cable that you connected to a completely different  12v, 4-pin, 5050 LED header. 

When a manual lists:

LED Module:
 / Connect the USB cable of cooler to any JUSB (USB 2.0) pin header on the motherboard.
The JUSB pin header consists of 5 pins on top and 4 pins at bottom,
please connect the USB cable to 4 pin header /
*Please refer to manual for detail location of JUSB (USB2.0) connectors.

it is a bad idea to connect it to any other header...
