ICUE and L Connect 3


Recommended Posts

For the love and god and all that is holy, I have a corsair AIO radiator 150i elite 


and i have 10 infinity fans from lian li...


do yourself a favor and do not get RGB products from different companies


you will regret the stability issues later


total dogshit




i have having the exact same issues as this guy with my reset button not working, the icue software is TERRIBLE

How do you have your Lian Li infinity fans connected? 

Do you have them going to the Lian Li hub and then having an adaptor to Mother Board RGB or do you have a commander Pro or other type hub? 

There are countless videos online;  Youtube even on how to connect Lian Li fans to ICUE. 

Are you using L Connect software and or ICUE. 

Have you loaded ICUE and not connected your fans to ICUE? Reason I ask is sometime the Firmware on the AIO needs updated. 

Also system build specs would be helpful. 

I have two commander pros , 4 vengeance ddr4 RGB, 12 Corsair fans, H115I AIO RGB, Asus mb and Asus Strix 2070 all controlled by ICUE latest Version no issues. in the Thermaltake Case. 

     Several of my friends have Lian Li case 011 with Lian Li Fans with Corsair RGB headset, ddr4 Ram rgb,keyboard and mouse all corsair with AIO Corsair and they have meshed their components together with adapter cables and use ICUE to run RGB and fans.

Here how I do it...



shhhhh.... my second machine runs 9 x AL-120 (3 x 3 fans) and is controlled by ICUE.

I have it set up as follows:

  • 3 channels of 3 AL-120 fans connected to a Lian Li UNI-HUB,
  • 3-pin ARGB to Corsair adaptor (search for them on eBay or Amazon) connecting a Lighting Channel port on a Commander Pro to the UNI-HUB,
  • Lampton SP105 fan controller (10 port PWM controller) connected the 3 channels of AL-120 fans (3 connections on the fan controller), and
  • 1 fan port of the Commander Pro to the sense wire & PWM signal of the Lampton SP105.

I do it this way so I can forget the L-Connect software (once I set it to "motherboard control for the lighting). The single fan port on the Commander Pro controls all fans via the Lampton controller and a Lighting Channel port on the Commander Pro controls the fan RGB.

When setting up the lighting (in ICUE) for the Lian Li fans using the Commander Pro:

  • Under "Lighting Setup"; choose "RGB LED Strips" and 6 for the number of strips, and
  • When setting up a "Lighting Layer", select the "All" option under the "Quick Lighting Zone" to ensure everything lights up.

Good thing is that I can control all lighting for the PC (it's an EVGA Z370 Classified that doesn't even support ARGB) via ICUE including a quick "Lighting Link" to black (stealth) activated via an Elgato Stream Deck and (assuming you actually pay attention and set it up right), the new Murals. I run full custom loops and use the temperature port on the Commander Pro to read the liquid temperature (10kΩ probe) which in tun, becomes the temperature source for my fan curve which is fed to the Lampton fan controller.

Almost simple!

First and foremost, my machine has been functional for over 3 years without fail until now. Here is what has been done so far.

 Since 12/12/2022, I have updated all drivers to the latest versions for everything be it the Fan controller, AMD drivers, Nvidia drivers, BIOS, Armoury Crate, Corsair iCue, L-Connect3, and all software on the machine. I also purchased and replaced the power supply (Again) on 12/16/2022 to EVGA 1300 GT (1300 Watts) from the EVGA 1300 G+ (1300 Watts) and I’m still having the same problem. At this point between the warranty exchanges and new purchases, I almost have enough parts to build a new PC. I need this fixed I'm 75% blind and this machine is my only means of working since I use software for magnifying everything.


At this point in my journey:

Current configuration:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X

Motherboard – ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI)

Memory - G.Skill Trident Z neo


DDR4-3600 CL16-19-19-39 1.35V

64GB (4x16GB)



Power Supply: EVGA Supernova 1300 GT

Case Fans: Lian Li SL120 Infinity (x9)

Add-In: Asus TPM-M R2.0 14-1 Pin TPM Module

NVMe: x2 Samsung 980 PRO SSD 2TB NVMe Gen 4 M.2

SSD: x3 Samsung 870 EVO 2TB 2.5 Inch SATA III


Corsair K95 RGB Platinum XT Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro SE, Wireless FPS/MOBA Gaming Mouse

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT High-Fidelity Gaming Headset



  • For approximately 5 months my PC will hard stop for seemingly no reason at very random times without any similarities to previous crashes. Sometimes it will crash while playing a game, other times I could be in the middle of a VMWare work session, looking at an MS Word document, or even just leaving the computer completely idle with all work processes closed overnight without anything being touched. Additionally, prior to replacing motherboard, I would also periodically get a boot error indicating BIOS corruption and needing to restore using “USB Flashback”.

When this occurs:

  • The monitor display either freezes to the current image or goes black/blank.
  • There is no change in QCODE.
    • Typical boot from a cold state QCODE is either CPU temp or AA, which is normal. 
  • The DRAM LED (amber color) comes on.
  • At this point, there is no function from the motherboard.
    • Case power button whether held for up to a minute or not.
    • The case reset button will not work.
    • Onboard “Start” and “Reset/AUX” keys do not function.
    • All case fans still rotate and LEDs stay on as well as the GPU stays lit.
  • The only way to get back to a working state is to:
    • Toggle the power switch on the PSU
    • Use the onboard “SAFE _BOOT” or “RETRY_BUTTON” from the motherboard.

What has been done thus far:

  • Ran both Memtest86 and Windows Memory Diagnostics (both failed with errors in one way or another.)
  • Set UEFI back to defaults and retested with same results.
  • Swapped memory:
    • Original: G.Skill Trident Z neo
      • F4-3600C16D-32GTZNC
      • DDR4-3600 CL16-19-19-39 1.35V
      • 32GB (2x16GB)
        • **2 kits 4 sticks total
    • New replacement: G.Skill Trident Z neo
      • F4-3600C16Q-64GTZNC
      • DDR4-3600 CL16-19-19-39 1.35V
      • 64GB (4x16GB)
  • Tested new memory and passed in default and D.O.C.P. configuration. (left in D.O.C.P.)
  • Still having same original issue for about a week.
  • Swapped GPU:
    • Original: ROG-STRIX-RTX2080TI-O11G-GAMING
      • **RMA swap to TUF-RTX3080TI-O12G-GAMING
    • 1ST replacement: TUF-RTX3080TI-O12G-GAMING
    • 2nd replacement: ROG-STRIX-RTX3080TI-O12G-GAMING
      • *New purchase
    • 3nd replacement: ROG-STRIX-RTX3090-O24G-WHITE
      • *New purchase
    • 4th MSI Gaming 1660 Super
      • *New purchase
  • Used each GPU for about 2-3 weeks before swapping to the next to no avail. The current GFPU in use is the 3090.
  • Rolled back UEFI BIOS to Version 2204 (2020/08/14) then back forward to Version 4201 (2022/04/29).
  • Swapped PSU
    • Original: SilverStone Technology 800W SFX-L, 80 Plus Titanium
    • Current: EVGA Supernova 1300 G
  • Still same issues
  • Nuked Windows 10 Pro and removed all NVMe/SSD drives except for the boot NVMe drive.
  • Reinstalled Windows 10 PRO (fully activated retail copy).
  • Reinstalled all required software.
  • No change system is still crashing to Amber DRAM light.
  • Swapped CPU Cooler:
    • Original: Lian Li GA-240A Galahad AIO 240
    • New: ASUS ROG RYUJIN II 360
  • There are no extension cables being used inside or outside of the computer chassis other than a surge protector.
  • The system still continues to randomly crash.
  • Replaced the motherboard via RMA to the same product that was changed 11/29/2022.
  • Since 12/12/2022, I have updated all drivers to the latest versions for everything be it Fan controller, AMD drivers, Nvidia drivers, BIOS, Armoury Crate, Corsair iCue, and all software on the machine. I also purchased and replaced the power supply (Again) 12/16/2022 to EVGA 1300 GT (1300 Watts) from the EVGA 1300 G+ (1300 Watts).
  • The most recent change made to single out the issues was to reinstall each software driver one-by-one. Everything is now working flawlessly with everything reinstalling EXCEPT iCue. I have tested both versions of iCue (v4.31.168 and v3.38.88 (For Legacy Devices)) and the same for L-Connect3 (Current version: v1.5.18  Posted: 12/20/2022 and "For UNI FAN SL-INF users, please keep using"V1.3.16.)
    • Just to clarify I do not currently have iCue installed period and L-Connect3 v1.3.16 is installed.
  • All that having been said I have not ever had issues with iCue and ASUS Aura working together and I have not had issues with L-Connect3 and ASUS Aura working together. It seems though that iCue and L-Connect3 with or without ASUS Aura consistently conflict. 

If not for a literal life need (75% blind) I wouldn't need or care if iCue was ever installed but unfortunately I need it to configure the macro keys on the K95 keyboard (which is the most important regardless of RGB) since that's first why I bought the keyboard and the macros are used to facilitate the magnifier multi-key functions. Additionally, since the Lian-Li fans are the SL-INF 3=packs I have to have the controller due to proprietary fan connections rather than direct to motherboard cables. Without L-Connect3 I can't control the fans even by passthrough. I really need someone's help to figure this out.


Thank you so so much in advance for any help. 


PS: There are no BSOD logs due to being a hard stop. I do have crash dump reports from GPU-z which is packaged into the L-Connect3 software and is used by L-Connect3 to monitor the system for fan control.

hmmm.. random crashes are always a b**ch to diagnose.

My first thought would be the memory speed pushing the CPU memory controller a bit too much, at the edge of stability.

The product page for the R9 3950X has the following memory speed specs :

Max Memory Speed
2x1R DDR4-3200

2x2R : DDR4-3200

4x1R : DDR4-2933

4x2R : DDR4-2667

The Gskill 16gb modules are dual rank so you are in the 4 sticks dual rank case, at 2667mhz max, running the memory controller almost a gigahertz overclocked.

If i were you, i'd apply the DOCP profile, then drop the speed down, see if it is stable. Memtest passes, but i'd still try that anyway, just to be thorough. Maybe way down at 2666, and if it doesn't crash, increase the speed.
