Help identifying a LL effect

Hi all,

 

First post here!

 

I was playing around with my 6x LL120/140 fans this evening, finding a new theme to settle on for a while, and I came across this video whilst looking for inspiration...

 

Skip to 24 seconds for a view of the fans and effect I'm referring to...

What effect is he using here? I cannot seem to find it in Link 4.9.2.25?

 

Or does the vlogger have early access to the new sync software?

 

Cheers!

Andy

I believe that would be "Arc" in Corsair LINK.

This is off topic, but to the original poster, did you have any issues with the LED effects on the LL fans?

 

I cannot get mine to work, or be recognized by Corsair Link for that matter. In fact I'm not sure my USB 2.0 header even works.

 

It's an ASUS Z170A motherboard, updated to Windows 10 (1709 version). I heard there might've been driver issues with this Fall Creators version of Windows 10 but wasn't sure if that was just me.

 

PS: I used the LL fans on another PC using Windows 7 and they worked instantly.

Thanks for the response!

 

My arc looks very different to his - my arc has half the LEDs off (like an arc!), whereas his appears to be half one colour, half another. It’s a very similar animation though, I agree.

 

I’ve been using arc for a while now and there’s no option for a third/background colour that I can see? I might be missing something obvious. For me it’s just outer and inner ring options. Each of them acts as an arc (about half of the LEDs in each ring) spinning in opposite directions.

 

Here’s my arc, with blue outer and red inner. It’s not the same effect, not quite.

@jameseames91, I fried the LEDs in two LL140 fans via an NZXT USB hub, but since connecting directly to my mobo all good! Never had any issues with detection, but have had a couple of Link crashes over the past couple of weeks.

IF no joy. Start a thread of your own detailing what the problem is and also fill out your system specs ;),, Really does help at times.. same with having your own thread for it. helps others with same issues find help easier ;)

I'd say its rainbow wave set at max speed but his Camera and Lighting arn't helping at all... .. It's certainly what the strips are doing..

 

It's just two colours though, not a full rainbow. In some shots, he's clearly quit Link to get the "demo" effect. But for the majority it's like 'arc', with two colours at all times. Not the 'arc' we all have access to.

 

Perhaps he's using a program other than Link to control the RGB?
