Lightning Node Pro Detected by Windows - Not iCUE

Scoured the forums for a couple of hours looking for a solution but didn't find one. Hope this is not a repeat of one I missed.

 

I installed a iCUE H100I Elite Capellix to my system and liked the fans on them. I ordered a ML 120 PRO kit and replaced the stock fans. I connected these fans to the Commander Core that came with the H100 and they work perfectly.

 

I wanted to replace the RGB in my case with the RGB LED Lighting Pro strips so it would sync with the pump and fans. I ordered the expansion kit since I already had the LNP that came with the fan kit.

 

Due to limited USB headers on my MOBO I installed a USB header port splitter so that I could plug in both devices.

 

The fans and pump are running fine and iCUE detected them while connected to the splitter.

 

It is not detecting the LNP in iCUE. I ran USBDeView and Windows is detecting the LNP. When I unplug the USB from the LNP Windows makes the noise its disconnected.

The issue is going to be due to the USB splitter. If you don't have enough internal USB 2.0 headers on your motherboard you will need to purchase, and utilize a high quality internal USB hub that has supplemental power from your system's PSU.

 

Thanks! I appreciate it. I plugged it into a header on the motherboard to test it out and it worked.

 

I honestly didn't think it would be trying to draw power like that to cause an issue. Guess the SATA was only providing power for the lights.

 

The other header was being tied up by a Wifi/Bluetooth card which I hardly ever use. Will disable that for now.
