Sorry this took so long. Please forgive the one black PCIe wire, still waiting on some cables but you get the idea....

Thanks Zotty. I am getting some rgb extension cables from Dev biker. Was going to ask you do you have a wiring diagram of how you hooked up your fan setup? I can’t get the front right to sync in the visor effect they jump all over the place. Corsair needs to make an eight fan rgb hub.

this is how i have my front fans dude.. did it this way so RGBz would play ball when it came to sequential effects etc and indeed kept control on one place....

After you create the effects, shut down iCue and restart it. Things like Visor have a "start time" and restarting iCue should reset it and keep them in sync (assuming same number of fans, same settings, etc).

 

Ok I will try that.... it is really strange, my back 8 fans sync just perfect, but the front 8 skip around in a non repeatable pattern. When I get the extensions you are making (thank you so much!) I will play around with it and maybe post some pics/vids of it if I can't get it right...

Hi,

 

So with this map, the 8 fans in the front to they all light up in some kind of sync? To me, it looks like the four right fans in the front would be fine, but the ones on the left would light up 3,5,6,1 no?

That looks sick. Dev biker is making me a special cable so I can hook all 8 fans into a single lighting node which means I should have no issue syncing these things.

 

Famous last words.

 

lol.. they will work.. although it will be at the cost of left and right control independently... such as

as you would end up with 2 copies of the one side if that makes sense..

 

but on the plus side.. makes control easier and free's up a LED channel.. for more strips.... muhahahahahaha
