ICUE not registering Lighting Node Pro


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased an ICUE Lighting Node Pro, which will not show up in ICUE no matter what I attempt to do.

I have been trying to sync the lighting on my GPU AIO, which has a 3pin ARGB connector, to the rest of my setup on ICUE. ICUE won't allow for 3 pin ARGB control through the motherboard. To do this, I have purchased a USB 2.0 splitter (my case only has one and my CPU AIO also connects there), a 3pin ARGB Mystic Light to 3pin Corsair adaptor cable, and an ICUE Lighting Node Pro. Everything is properly powered, plugged in, and running: but ICUE will not recognize the Node. Following other form topics I have:

Attempted different USB headers: both ports on the splitter recognize my H100i AIO so it's not a problem with the adaptor 

Restarted the PC multiple times 

Plugged the USB 2.0 cable in and out

Deleted the drivers/deleted the device off windows and reinstalled

Checked with USBDeview to see if the device is recognized: it is connected and not disabled

Disabled Windows Fast Start and ensured XHCI is enabled.

Fresh removed/installed ICUE

Checked for ICUE updates

The lights on the AIO are glowing multicolor in a different pace than when connected to the motherboard; I can tell that the adaptor is working. But ICUE refuses to recognize the Lighting Node Pro. Do I need to wait for the right update for ICUE to recognize the Node, is this just not going to work? If this ends up being a bust, then I'm gonna try DeepCool's ARGB to RGB convertor box, since ICUE will work with 4pin adaptors through the motherboard and my ASUS has two 4pin ports. 

My motherboard is the ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING II, The AIO for the GPU is a IDCooling Iceflow  240 VGA Graphics Card Cooler. This was the adaptor cable I bought: https://www.ebay.com/itm/372521827376

I would suspect the USB splitter. There've been a number of issues that have tracked back to them and I can't think of a single case where they've worked well.

I tried the H100i in both slots and they registered just fine. I'll try just the port on the Motherboard tomorrow but even if that works that will still be a problem because my mobo only has one usb 2.0 port.

If your motherboard doesn't have enough internal USB 2.0 headers for all your devices you need to plug in then the solution would be to utilize a high quality internal USB 2.0 hub that gets supplemental power from the power supply.

Update: using the single header port on the motherboard did the trick! It's working just fine, but now the H100i doesn't have a slot and is stuck in rainbow mode. Any ideas as to how to get that connected? Would a commander Pro do the trick since the older model has 2 usb headers included as well as the 2 lighting channels. Or route one of the headers to a back panel usb port with a mini to usb 2 cable? Or any recommended USB 2.0 hubs that get power from the psu?

I am also stuck with this problem. I bought a splitter but I have to choose between iCue detecting my case fans OR the Lighting Node pro which does all my led lights. I've tired this one:

But it seems to be an issue with the splitter. I will keep trying them until I find one that iCue wants to cooperate with.

Can you point us in the right direction to find a "high quality internal USB 2.0 Hub" ❤️

There is also version 2 of it, both are good. I have them both and are the once they usually recommend here on the forum.
