5V Addressable RGB Compatibility

Are all 5V Addressable RGB LEDs compatible with iCUE and Corsair's RGB Hub?

 

I have an RGB LED strip that is 4-pin, 5V Addressable. However, it has a different form factor (see attached). I was thinking of converting/making a new cable with the appropriate form factor as I am reasonably confident the pinout is identical.

Good point. The RGB heads on the lighting node and commander pro are 3-pin. But what about the inputs on the RGB hub for the ML/LL/HD 120/140's?

 

The wire in question is to aquacomputer RGBpx LED's. Specifically this one: https://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=3776

 

The 4-pin RGB inputs for the fans are still 5V WS2812B. They use the fourth pin to daisy-chain the fans ... so 1 pin is Data In (to the fan LEDs) and the other one is Data Out (from the fan LEDs). Each LED "pops" it's color data off the stack and passes the rest down the chain.

 

As to whether or not that product would work ... I really can't tell you from the product information. Certainly, the pins would be different from the fan headers - four pin or not. I suspect that one of those pins is N/C (no connection) ... it'd kinda have to be if its WS2812B (which most of the Addressable RGB LEDs are, with the notable exception of the Corsair SP-RGB fans). Looking at some of the other RGBpx products (specifically https://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=3769), it looks like that would be the case. Note that this has 3 connectors between each LED.

 

I would ask aquacomputer the details of the RGB LEDs that they use and what their pinout specification is for those connectors.
