CoPro LED Channel 2/ Hydro X Flickering

Hello all. Recently I had to change the motherboard in my PC, and upon reassembly, I am experiencing a strange lighting problem. Channel 1 runs 6 LL120’s and Channel 2 runs 1 XD5 Pump/Res and 1 XC7 CPU block. The CPU block is daisy chained in with the XD5 as is says to in the manual, and the XD5 plugs into LED Channel 2 on the Commander Pro. Whenever the system is on I get the colors specified in my profile, but I also get an extremely bright flickering. It is more pronounced from the CPU block but that is more because of how it is oriented. The flickering is bright enough that it becomes very irritating to sit next to.

 

I did a little troubleshooting and tried each device plugged into LED Channel 2 on the CoPro, and like this they work fine. It’s only when using the two products connected through the XD5 that the flickering/flashing happens. I did also try hooking up one of PirateDogTech’s RGB splitters to the CoPro Channel and both products into that but iCUE did not recognize that configuration. Anyone have any ideas? These products have all worked together perfectly for over a year until about a week ago. Any help or support would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I also would try hooking the XD5 + XC7 daisy chain into Node Pro channel 1 without the LL's RGB hub connected. It would be good to test if the LNP is somehow now current limited. If it's still a problem, I am not sure there is anything else to do but contact Corsair Support.

Well, I tried the idea of placing the XD5/XC7 RGB lead into channel one. Unfortunately it’s the same result. I have ordered a Piratedogtech RGB splitter to see if that helps solve the issue. Next item on my agenda is to contact Corsair support. Time to see how good their service is. :)

Assuming the LL are not flickering too, it seems like the problem is somewhere in the daisy chain wire. Other than give each their own channel, it probably needs to be replaced. The splitter will make them act like a single LED structure that is then duplicated, unlike the sequential pairing with the daisy chain. Maybe that is better for you then replacement — at least right now.
