Does Visor work different with different controllers


Recommended Posts

This is my first build with RGB I have an ok grasp of the way iCUE works with layers and such. 

I'm getting a weird result using Visor. My setup is a 5000x RGB case, iCUE H150 ELITE LCD XT, I have replaced the AIO and case fabs with a total of 10 QL 120mm fans. 

I have four fans (three top and one rear) running off the Commander Core that comes with the AIO. Then I have the front six fans running off a Commander XT. I have them all arranged correctly and in proper order in iCUE. When I run Visor it starts at the top fan on the front of the case, goes down and then up the fans in the front/side so that is fine. The issue happens when Visor moves to the fans connected to the Commander Core from the AIO, it goes in the correct order but there is a six to seven second delay from the last fan connected to the Commander XT to the first fan connected to the Commander Core from the AIO, there are no other light on in the case during this delay. This delay happens going both ways. 

I did a test and removed the Commander XT and ran the front six fans off a Lighting Node Core and the delay is still there but now it's only two seconds. 

I have unchecked (for lack of a better term) the Visor layer for everything in iCUE except for the fans and still have the same delays. 

Is there anyway to get rid of the delay when going from fans on the Commander XT to fans on the Commander Core?

 

In case it matters, a list of what shows up in iCUE from my build, in this order at the top:

ROG Maximus z790 Hero 

iCUE H150 ELITE LCD XT (four fans, ring and screen)

HX1500i

Dominator Platinum (4x32 DIMMs)

Commander XT (six fans)

This is a bit dated and I ran these tests in Mid 2021, before the introduction of the Commander XT.  I suspect it will slot in right before the Commander Core.

 

Lighting Link Sequential effect device order

KB -> Mouse -> RGB mouse pad -> Lighting Node Pro -> Lighting Node Core -> Commander Pro -> Commander XT(?) -> Commander Core -> RAM -> External Ambient Lighting (LS100, LT100, ST100).

 

1. Do you have anything connected to the LED port on the Commander XT?  In "Lighting Set up" see if you can turn that off or remove any device selected.  It may be generating a pattern for strips that are not there.  

2. The device order at the top of CUE is only the order in which they loaded at boot, from first to last on the left. 

3.  There are no manual controls for the lighting link features.  

4. I am curious when the LCD top fires in this sequence.  I would expect it to be after the Commander Core but before the RAM.  It also did not exist when II tested.

Thank you for listing the order it runs in. 

In lighting setup I did in fact have fans listed under 3-Pin Lighting Effects, as soon as I set it to no devices the transition from the XT to the Commander Core is perfect, no delay. Thank you very much for pointing me in that direction. I must have done that the very first time I was setting the app up. 

The only problem now is the first thing in sequence on the Commander Core that lights up is the ring on the LCD and then the fans with no way to reorder it. I can reorder the fans but the ring on the LCD is always in first place so now there is a 1-2 second delay going from fan to fan while the animation runs on the LCD ring. If I could just move the LCD ring to last position on the Commander Core everything would be perfect. 

There has to be a way around this.

I wonder if it would work if I moved just the RGB connections for the four fans that are currently connected to the Commander Core to a Lighting Node Core?  

Let me try that...

Moving the RGB part of the fan to a Lighting Node Core, Pro, or Commander Pro should move their firing order further up the list.  However, I generally caution most users chasing this and to give some thought to how much this one effect means to them.  When you first get it, the full case sequential effect may seems pretty nice, but as you've seen it's a real pain to set up with no user side management tools -- other than swapping different controllers into the sequence.  When you tire of the Visor, there is no other lighting link effect that works this way.  Technically color wave is also sequential, but in a multicomponent system you'll loose the precise flow path almost immediately.   Down the line you may find you enjoy using specific and more complex sequential effects on just the fans with complimentary lighting from other pieces.  This is particularly true with the QL that have extra unique lighting effects that are fun to play around with.  There is no way to link the QL specific effects from Com Core to Com XT or any other lighting controller.  We do not have that option at this time.

Thanks again, and I do agree it is a lot for just one effect. 

Since I have two Lighting Node Cores here from my two three packs of fans, three if you count the stripped one that comes in the 5000x for now I just added one to the case and everything is working in correct order. 

I'll probably get board with the effect in a week and change it anyways...lol
