  1. Actually, the controller (it's not a controller...

    Actually, the controller (it's not a controller really but a "HUB," as it doesn't control anything) I am using (along with the Phanteks model) is not USB. It's SATA powered and the motherboard DLED...
  2. "Jon," sorry. I figured what you meant was...

    "Jon," sorry.

    I figured what you meant was that you can't just plug it into some boards. :) Hope you can comment on my solution! :) I just can't imagine that this feedback problem can be solved so...
  3. I'm rocking! I cut the 5V pin going into the...

    I'm rocking!

    I cut the 5V pin going into the controller. No feedback, and since the controller uses SATA for power, I only have the data connected, and it works! No more power feedback. All LEDs...
  4. Yes, I do have a Gigabyte MB. If you disable the...

    Yes, I do have a Gigabyte MB. If you disable the 5V SATA connection, how does the controller get power?

    I was thinking about disabling the DLED cable 5V pin. Since it is getting power from the...
  5. John, if you repin other brands LEDs connectors...

    John, if you repin other brands LEDs connectors to Corsair, then you can use it with any MB. In fact, there s a whole subculture of modders selling iCUE adapters on Ebay and New Egg for MBs it does...
  6. Well, that's two DLED controllers that don't...

    Well, that's two DLED controllers that don't work. As above, one was from Phanteks and the other was just a generic Chinese model. Phanteks said that was one problem using their controller with a...
  7. John, Sorry for the delay. I was waiting for a...

    John,
    Sorry for the delay. I was waiting for a generic DLED controller to test if it did the same thing as the Phanteks controller. It did.

    The poster at HARDOCP replied to your comment quoted...
  8. I am using a Gigabyte MB, and Phanteks tech...

    I am using a Gigabyte MB, and Phanteks tech support emailed me back and said that is EXACTLY one of the problems using their controller with Gigabyte r ASROCK MB's. I just bought a Phanteks 3 pin...
  9. If that were the case, wouldn't the SATA...

    If that were the case, wouldn't the SATA connections be fully powered and spin the fans up 100%, just like when you first start a system and the fans run 100% before the BIOS control kicks in?
  10. I'll report back with that information. I assume...

    I'll report back with that information. I assume that would indicate that the MB must be involved?


    I did some more testing.

    I don't know how that slipped my test. Maybe is was too late last...
  11. Absolutely the cables that came with the Corsair...

    Absolutely the cables that came with the Corsair PSU are the ones I am using:

    This is what one poster said on HardOCP:

    "The SATA ports on the PSU are not actually separate. They terminate to...
  12. Okay, if there isn't any signal wire on the SATA...

    Okay, if there isn't any signal wire on the SATA side, this is getting even more strange. I just shut my rig off and plugged in an SATA drive and nothing happened, as it should. If I plug the...
  13. Corsair RM550x Strange behavior with LED hub--SOLVED!

    This is with the computer shut down completely.

    I just bought a Phanteks DLED hub. I'm using a second SATA connection to power it.

    When I plug it in, the PSU unit fan comes on and also, runs...
  14. I also noticed that the Corsair Sleeved ATX cable...

    I also noticed that the Corsair Sleeved ATX cable has the capacitors in the middle of the cable, not at the end. So, how much less efficient will that be vs the stock cables that have them right in...
  15. Yes, that is the one, thank you. Looked...

    Yes, that is the one, thank you. Looked everywhere for it but couldn't find it. I'll see if I can find it retail.

    Just looked on Amazon, and now I remember why I couldn't find it. They are...
  16. Well, right now, I just have the water block LED...

    Well, right now, I just have the water block LED and the two fan LEDs plugged in so it's 1.78A out of the 2A the DLED riser can handle.

    Just to play it safe, I'm looking for a DLED powered hub. Do...

    I bought the sleeved cables to replace the stock cables:

    I can't find any cables that are specifically made for Corsair PSUs (Unless I want to order custom cables and I'm not sure they include the caps inline either--nevertheless, way to expensive anyway)....
  19. Thanks for the quick reply. What got me thinking...

    Thanks for the quick reply. What got me thinking that the power consumption was too high is that the mother board manual says: "The [DLED] header can be used to connect a standard 5050 digital LED...
  20. Help determining how much power this unit uses: Spec page uses "rated voltage"?

    I have an Enermax AIO CPU cooler, and I'm trying to figure out what the unit draws.

  21. Corsair PCIe Individually Sleeved 8 (6+2) pin cables compatibility W/Corsair RM550x?

    My PSU is the Corsair RM550X (2018) model.

    I just bought the Corsair PCIe sleeved cables (6+2) Type 4, which come two to a bag. From what I cold find on the Corsair site, if you need two...

    Hey no worries. Thanks for the explanation. I remember reading JG in the weeeee hours of the morning, eyes blaring, looking for that perfect PSU years ago! My life went sideways about 7 years ago and...
  23. So there really is no way to have these inside...

    So there really is no way to have these inside the PSU and do the same job, or would it just be more expensive? I know several PSU reviewers have said they don't think they are necessary and add bulk.
  24. So if the cap was near the PSU or half way down...

    So if the cap was near the PSU or half way down the cable, it would still work, just not as efficiently?

    Also, highly interesting abut the wavy lines on the ram module and light speed. Very...
  25. Corsair In Cable Capacitors (and others) - why located in motherboard end?

    I know this is probably obvious to many of you, but why are the in line capacitors located near the MB connection end instead of closer to the power supply?

    Edit: I think I just figured it out....
