H100i RGB Platinum SE - no more RGB on the fans

Hello everyone,

 

Im new to the forums here and recently finished putting together a computer with a decent amount of corsair products. Everything was working fine for the past week until today....the day i installed iCUE. Imediately after the restart my front 2 case fans stopped working along with the fans on the H100i cooler. Which brings me here to seek help.

 

Ive got the case fans working properly again and recognized by iCUE. The coolor fans however do not light up anymore. iCue recognizes there are fans connected giving me speeds and shows in the lighting effects tab that there are 2 fans there. However i can not get the fans to glow again.

 

I have set up the lightning node pro to have 2 lightning channels, both on the setting LL RGB series fan and 2 fans connected. This step is what fixed the RGB my case fans but unfortunatly the cooler fan RGB's never came back on.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated

 

Pictures attached of case and iCUE settings;

When you wired up the coolers fans how did you connect up the RGB cables?

 

From your pics and description of the issue it sounds like you have all 4 of the LL fans connected up to one RGB hub. To check that in software all you have to do is add more fans to the channel that your other fans are connected to. (The section in your attachment corsair1.JPG)

 

Hope that helps!

Mike thanks for your response.

 

I have tried adding 4 fans under the lighting setup tab and no difference. I have also moved slots in the commander to 1 & 2 , where the front working case fans were plugged in, and still no power to the RGB.

 

I have attached a picture of the connections

You skipped port 3 on the fan hub. Can't do that; can't skip ports.

 

They were originally put it port 3 and 4 as the FAQ suggested.

 

I moved the RGB connectors from slot 3 and 4 to slots 1 and 2 where the front case fans were working and still nothing. I tried other slots to see if that would spark the RGB but nothing. They are currently in slot 3 and 4.

And you added the two fans to the channel in iCUE?

Last screen shot of your channel has 2 fans on the channel. You need to specify four. And you only need to configure channel 1.

IF you have all four fans on channel 1, then try rearranging the fans.

Yes, after Corsair Mike told me to do so I deleted the second channel and switched channel 1 from 2 fans to 4 fans. Didnt change anything.

 

I will try to rearrange the RGB slots tonight to see, having the cooler fans in slot 1 and 2 and the case fans in slot 3 and 4.

 

Is it recommended i restart the PC after changing slots or is that not needed?

FIXED!

 

Thank you DevBiker!

 

To fix this issue, I had to move the CASE FANS from slot 1 and 2(which is how the case came) to slots 3 and 4 and put the COOLER FANS in slot 1 and 2.

 

For some reason if you plug the COOLER FANS in a slot after the CASE FANS it does not recognize the RGB for the COOLER FANS.

 

Appreciate the help, CorsairMike & DevBiker!

 

Safe to say I bought the K95 keyboard tonight to finish the setup.

 

Anyways, i have attached a picture of my desk for people to see the final product.

when swapping fan#1 with fan #4 they still continue to work.

 

Even more odd, when i go back to the original setup of case fans in slot 1 and 2 and cooling fans in slot 3 and 4 everything works.

 

My question is why in iCue under the H100i tab it shows the CPU cooler and 2 fans to change colors but yet those 2 fans represent nothing because you have to control the RGB of the H100i from the Node Pro tab. In the screenshot attached you can see i have the RGB off under the H100i tab but they are working because of the settings in the lightning node pro tab. Weird but i understand how iCue is thinking now so i know how to control them.

It's because you've told iCUE (or allowed iCUE to continue to believe) that the fans are attached to the RGB controller on the cooler. You can go to the Lighting Setup for the cooler and tell it that no fans are connected.

 

You need to tell iCUE what's there or what's not. RGB fans aren't detected automatically.
