Corsair Obsidian 1000D Build Log/How to Guide


Recommended Posts

it'll work its way out ;) .

 

and if using an XD5 pump. dont hot swop any of its connections. its known to pop the pwm controller on the pump and/or that fan header on the Commander Pro.

 

if the machine is already up and running then head into icue and max/min its pump a few times.. may shift the bubble. but you'll find it will move on on its own over a few days anyways

Hi Zotty,

 

I wanted to start off saying great thread with lots of good information on the 1000D case.

 

I had a few questions about the Front I/O Panel.

 

I'm working on building a custom case and bought the 1000D Front I/O Panel since it fit my requirements of a Power/Reset button, Mic/Headphone ports, and USB A and C ports.

 

I didn't realize at first that it also had ARGB lighting, with lead me down the rabbit hole of seeing if I can get that to work leading me to this thread. I saw that you mentioned way at the beginning of the thread there was a way to power the LEDs, at least in white, without any kind of controller, and that's you'd follow up later in the thread on how to do that. After reading through the thread over several days, I didn't see any follow up on how to get the lighting to work.

 

 

Ideally, I'd like to control the lights directly through the 5v ARGB Headers, but I'm not sure if that would work. I found Pirate Dog and Moddiy have cables that is a Corsair 3pin male connecter on one end and a 5v ARGB 3 pin on the other and control the lighting through Aura Sync.

 

My questions are, Is it possible to use the adapter cable to control the lights through Aura Sync? If not, is there a way to get the lighting to work without the 1000D version of the CoPro?

If you need the 1000D version of the CoPro and the standard version won't work, any ideas where I could find the 1000D version (It's not listed on the Corsair store for the US)?

Hey Buddy...

 

Technically the LED's in the 1000d front IO are just a Corsair LED strip just like corsairs other strips. this will work on all corsairs RGB contollers and should be no reason why an Adapter from Pirate Dog Tech wouldnt work.... it contains 18 LEDS btw..

 

 

I currently run 2 x 1000d front IO's. i have one on my desk and of course the one in my 1000d.. the one on my desk is connected to a lighting node pro.

 

re powering it as white and uncontrolled.. you get a sata power cable with the 1000d that plugs directly into the chassis lighting. not sure this cable is available with out the case.. i shall go research ;)

Thanks Zotty! I was thinking I'd get some functionality with the Asus ARGB 5v headers with the correct adapter cable.

 

So to make sure I'm connecting the correct cable, is it the cable with the male end or female end coming off the I/O panel that would need to be connected to the motherboard?

 

Going off of other pictures of the pass-thru cable, it looks like I would connect the female end of the I/O panel into an adapter cable with a Corsair 3-pin male on one side and a 3-pin 5v argb female on the other.

 

 

Eventually, I might add a CoPro to mix, so it's good to know I can use a general CoPro and not the 1000D version.

 

 

I was looking at getting the accessory kit when I was putting together parts since it had most of what I needed, but of course it's out of stock.

Hi,

I have a question regarding the iCue setup for the 1000D. I connected the 1000D Commander pro with the one Commander core and one Lighting Node PRO which has two RGB hubs connected. I don't see both the Commander core and Node PRO in iCue. Do we need to do anything extra to make them available in iCue? I can link the Commander core directly to motherboard and two hubs to Commander pro, since I can see the hub option in settings, but I want to know if I can save one USB in motherboard.

I know this is old as heck but I don't care I have to say something.

 

I Freaking Love Seeing All these awesome full builds with the 1000D.

Your PC is the most perfect example of PC Gaming Enthusiast's PC in the world.

I started this back in the early 90's, you had several cards installed on your motherboard. Your case actually kind of looked filled up. Now so many PC's are a motherboard with video card and that's it. They are so plain looking IMO.

Your PC and the other couple 1000D builds on this site look so freaking amazing.

I'm just sitting here slowing scrolling through the pics with my mouth hangin half open almost ready to drool. I'm dying to upgrade my case. I actually bought a Phantek Enthoo Pro 2 because of the reviews and I didn't even build in it. I took it out of the box and put it back in and sent it back. I want the 1000D but I'm worried I won't fill it up enough. From seeing the Kick ***** builds on this site I understand now you have to do dual system build. Just so happens I have a 9600K, 32GB Crucial Ballistix and 8+ HDDs. So now I have to start shopping for an ITX board.

Question for the original poster.

You aren't using any of the fan connections on the motherboard? Every single fan is run through CoPro?

Yes. He's running everything through the CoPro. He's not the only one - lots do.
