Default Corsair 570x Fan's RGB not working

I recently bought an corsair 570x. The front 3 fans are running but rgb not working. Yes, I did plugged in the rgb hub sata power. I am thinking something is defective like the fans led or or the hub or rgb controller. How can I determine that ? Or Am I missing something ?

Do you have the fan hub connected to the push button controller?
Are the fans connected to the fan hub in positions 1-2-3?

No, don't connect it to the motherboard. Four pin motherboard RGB is 12V. Those are 5V. Connecting it to the motherboard will (not may, will) damage the LEDs.

Start with putting different fans in port 1. Once one works, put the next one in to port 2. The fans are daisy chained so one bad fan can take the whole chain out.

Or it could be the push-button controller is defective.
Did you push any buttons on it? Wondering if maybe it's set to "off". The push-button controller should be connected to the end of the RGB Fan LED Hub.

Not sure what version 570x you have as I don't believe they are all the same wiring connection wise (I could be wrong) but, did you trace the wiring back from the button controller? I know initially on my mirror black version, there is a small (i think 3 bundle) wire connector that was installed right up top of the case under the frame and was very easy to disconnect one or all wires. Note; this connector might only be on the case variants with the light up PSU shroud and front logo.

At this point ... not really. You might want to check out Johnny_B500's suggestion and trace the wires. Third party shops are notorious for wiring stuff up incorrectly, unfortunately. (It's not uncommon that we see it here.)

And you can contact Corsair Support to see if they can help you.
