RGB Corsair SPEC-DELTA, Carbide


Recommended Posts

Hey,

I have a problem, maybe you could help me (sorry for the potentially stupid questions).

 

The problem concerns the rgb fans of the "Corsair SPEC-DELTA, Carbide" box. Having a motherboard "b450 a-pro-max can not connect all the front fans (there are three) I bought an adapter to power them via a plug "molex". except that on my motherboard I have nothing to control the RGB, so I have a box in the rgb.

 

I've done some research and I found: https://www.corsair.com/fr/fr/Cat%C3%A9gories/Produits/Custom-Cooling/Accessoires/CORSAIR-RGB-Fan-LED-Hub/p/CO-8950020.

 

On the other hand for my 3 fans in the front I have 6 cables (3 for power and 3 for the rgb) but I do not know if it will be suitable to control the rgb.

Is it just by plugging the three rgb cables of the fans on this HUB that it will work or is it necessary to do something else.

Can you help me?

Thanks

Hi Samoht, the RGB hub you linked is a dummy device that requires a connection to either a Lighting Node Pro or a Commander Pro in order to control the RGB.

 

If you are looking for a standalone device to control only RGB, something like the Lighting Node CORE should work well.

 

If you wanted to consolidate your setup, you should also consider the Commander CORE, which allows you to control the speed of up to 6 fans (PWM) as well as their RGB.

 

*Note that all fans connected must be of the same model/LED count

 

Both of these devices require the use of an internal USB header for data, and a SATA power connector.

The Spec-Delta comes with 12V analog RGB fans. They won't work with any of the Corsair controllers unless you use a Digital to Analog Converter (DAC). If your motherboard doesn't have a 12V RGB header, you'll need to get a 3rd party controller.

 

That's if you want to use the fans that come with the case. If you're going to swap them out, then things would be different.

Thank you for your response.

 

If I understand correctly, the corsair hub will not work, I have to take a controller instead?

Yes. The Spec-Delta fans are the only analog 12V RGB fans that Corsair has.

 

 

I think that'll work. It looks like it will. I've not personally used it myself so I cannot be 100% certain.

if your motherboard is the one you have on your profile, then you already have a 12V RGB header, JRGB1 (page 37) :

You would just need a splitter cable to connect all the fans to it, then it's controlled through MSI's software, or maybe iCUE 4 now.

 

As for the fan control (speed) looking at the manual, there's 5 fans headers, 1 CPU and 4 chassis fans. So you should be able to connect them all, plus an exhaust fan if you decide to add one later on.

The fans that comes with that case does not work with our controllers as it was made to be used with the motherboards RGB controll.

 

As LeDoyen said on the motherboard you wrote you are using there is a JRGB header in the top right corner of the motherboard. There is also 5x fan ports, on in the top next to the DRAM slots, three on the right side and one on the bottom part of the motherboard.
