3 HD RGB fans but only 1 works. (2 140 and 1 120)


Recommended Posts

In my Corsair 450D case I have 6 fans. I currently have 2 RGB Fan LED Hubs, both running into one Corsair Lighting Node.


Lighting Channel 1 has 3 fans

2 HD 140mm

1 HD 120mm


Lighting Channel 2 has 3 fans

3 LL 120mm


Lighting Channel 2 works fine. Lighting channel 1 is where I have the problem.


On lighting channel 1 I can only get one HD 140mm fan to display RGB, the 2nd 140mm only shows one white LED lit up. The HD120 is completely dark.


I want to mention that all fans are powered on and running.


Oddly enough if I remove the (white light) 2nd HD140 MM and plug it into Lighting channel 2, that fan will then display RGB. If I try with the HD120 I still get no RGB. I've tried completely switching RGB fan hubs to see if it was a short in the fan hub but nothing changed. I'm really confused on what to try next.

Hi bud... the fan you switched out to port 3.. sounds like thats your bad boy.. what happens with it in port 1? lose all 3 fans??





rereading.. fan one... may not be passing data on correctly to Fan 2?


these things form a 'daisy' chain.. if one is not passing its data on correctly if at all.. the rest down the line can suffer
