SP120 Fans not lighting up

Recommended Posts

I have 6 SP120 RGB fans connected into a lighting node core in a 220T case. They are connected to the fan headers on my MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon Motherboard, as well as the USB header.

 

Although the fans spin no problem and show up in iCue they do not light up or change colour profile.

 

All fans are set to DC mode in the BIOS.

 

I also have Corsair Vengence RGB RAM and they work fine.

 

Any ideas what I may be doing wrong?

the old SP120 RGB are not compatible with iCUE at all.

They use another RGB chip type (UCS1903) to what became the standard later on when ARGB started to get popular (WS2812).

 

Basically, the LNCore can't talk to the SP120 fans at all. These are made to be used with a dedicated controller that is manual control only, no iCUE connectivity.

 

Not to be confused with SP120 PRo RGB which are compatible with iCUE.

So, your options are to either use the SP120 controller if you have it, or upgrade to another fan model.

 

Have a look at Zotty's guide on iCUE ecosystem, it should help a lot

My 6 SP120's work fine with iCUE and have since its inception.
