Hi,

 

I'm new at building computer and I just recently put my build together but I am struggling to get my Corsair LED strip to work. Currently, I have 6 HD120 fan connected to the fan hub 1-6 and they are current working. The hub is connected to LED#1 on the LN, the LED strip on connected to LED#2 on the LN but it doesn't light up. Am I doing something wrong? Please see attach pictures.

OK ... you have a Fan Hub connector wire in both port 1 and port 2. So port 2 should be one of the extension wires for the RGB Strip. This will have a male connector on one end, a female connector on the other and 3 wires. That third wire that you are missing supplies 5V power.

 

And yes, the final strip in the chain won't be connected to anything. But right now they are backwards.

Thank you for you help DevBiker! I got my LED strip to work but I ran into another problem. If you can advise that would be great. The three HD120 fan in the front are working fine, but the last three are not. Two are mounted on top of the case, one of them half the led are working. One HD120 fan mounted in the back but non of the led works. Please see the attached image.

Can you include a screen shot of your Link configuration?

 

Also, have you switched around the fans? Is the one that's 1/2 lit fan #4? The fans (and the strips) work in series so if one is bad, it can take the rest of them out down the chain.

Here is the screenshot of the link. I did try switching fan#4(half lit one) to spot 6, move fan5 and 6 down. This time fan5 is half lit

I was looking for the configuration screen for Link - or are you using iCue? I'm looking to see how they are configured in there as that can be one cause of the issue.

It possible that you have LED port configured as 4 strips rather than 6 HD fans. 4 strips would be 40 LEDs ... each HD fan has 12 LEDs. So if you configured your HD Fan channel as 4 strips, the first 3 fans (36 LEDS) would be lit and 4 LEDs on the 4th would be lit. The rest would be out.

 

Make sense?
