corsair rgb fans arent lighting up. please help


Recommended Posts

hi there. i am new to the forum. this is actually my first post. i just built a new computer and everything is working perfectly fine. but i have 7 corsair fans. and i had them all lit and working perfectly fine. i started playing around in icue and now only 3 of the fans are lit. so i tried rearranging the rgb fan cords on the rgb pro hub and i just cant get them all to light up. i thought i might have a bad rgb hub so i tried another one and only 3 lights up still. i rearranged the rgb plugs in every possible combination and i get nothing. as for the fans i have 2 different kinds. 

Fans - 4 corsair ml140 pro rgb 140mm
Fans - 3 corsair sp120 rgb pro 120mm

How do you have the lighting channel configured in iCUE? Can you show a screen shot? Are the fans connected to the hub in consecutive ports (no skipping!!)

the fans are all plugged in from numbers 1 to 6. on number 6 i do have a splitter so i can use the 7th fan as well

Ahh, they are all configured as 4-LED MLs. Configure it as 8 LED Series fans.

In the general CUE settings pop up, make sure “enable plugins” is turned on. If it already is enabled, turn it off, wait 10 seconds, then re-enable. You might also try the restart Corsair service button down below. 
 

If that does not work, things get trickier. You must have Armory Crate installed, but actively changing its settings while CUE is running may derail one or the other. It’s settings should pop back up when you quit CUE and doing so is a way to test AC’s functionality.
