    I recently bought the Masterset MS121 in order to use it to control my late 2016 MacBook Pro With the touch bar. However, I found that the keyboard did not work at all. It does not light up or show any form of life. I have plugged it into a windows PC an I have found that it works on that, then I plugged it into an iMac and it doesn't work there either. Is there any way that I can get it working on Mac or will I have to get a refund? Are any of the CM keyboards Mac compatible? Thanks in advance.

    These instructions for the ML120R RGB really suck. Sorry but they do. No where does it explain what buttons do what on the controller. Or does it explain the other things like the SATA connection and connections like 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and the plug above 7. And I'm guessing the 2 radiator fans use the spliter provided with the black and brown plugs to the motherboard rear fan header but that doesn't explain how cable 7 is attached to the controller. Where does the Case reset go? Where does the motherboard reset go when I have a reset button on my PC case? Where does the plug above #7 go on the controller that looks like a temperature thing? Where does 2 and 4 go. Who ever wrote these instructions really needs to re-think there intentions

    I have pointed down psu's fan and it's fine. And u should connect fans to the splitter and splitter to the desk to some SYS_FAN. With MB530P is included just splitter to the psu, not to mobo so you should buy if you wanna control it.

    Hey, lol, I have exactly same prob with exact components.. and u should connect it to ARGB header, not RGB. But I did it and it didnt help me... Idk what to do.

    I didnt buy it for the RGB, actually didnt know it was there until I got the product with my amd cpu "in a box", but..... you make a fan with a RGB light on it, you make it color adjustable by a wire to USB port on the motherboard and you have a piece of software to control the color...... so far so good.... Then why can the software only do 4 things..... 1. cycle colors 2. set it as one static color 3. the the light blink (breathe) 4. off. what happend to all the cool stuff..... 5. The obvious... color scale depending on cpu speed 7. color scale depending on fan speed 8. color scale depending on hdd/ssd activity 9. Blink to music beats... 10 going further......blink to every keyboard input....if detectable.

    I WORKED IT OUT!!! I have the CM ML120 with only one fan connected but this will work if you are using two. I should've done some research because the advertising on the box said Aura Sync, and I would assume it was illegal to advertise such things if it weren't available. I followed all the instructions that was given in the manual, plug cables into AIO header and CPU header, plug the other pump cable into the controller, plug the fans into the splitter which plugs into the controller, then i had to power the bloody thing too and figured out why it didn't work. then with a little research, the thought process was I had to plug SOMETHING into the RGB header on the motherboard... but the question was what! then after a little bit of playing around with different cables (including the 4 pin cable) plugging in and out of the controller it donned on me.... I needed a splitter that connected the pump and fans, and plug that directly into the RGB header on the motherboard. and then Bobs your uncle. Aura sync works instantly!!! So just to reiterate what I have done. Coolermaster supply a 3 way splitter, which you plug the female plugs from the pump and fan(s) into using the Male-Male adapters. Then simply plug the single female end into the 3pin RGB port on your motherboard.

    There have been multiple posts on this forum regarding the controller for our AIO's. This company has neglected to comment on the problem, essentially spitting the faces of their customers. "Plug in your CM device to get started" I'm now going to spend a few hours leaving the worst reviews for their products across as many sites as possible. No one should buy coolmaster products with this level of neglect and contempt for their own customers. Garbage company. Garbage products. Garbage customer service. No clear stance on anything, it's always just "contact customer support"

    I have an MSI b450 tomahawk and purchased a 3 fan kit of mf120r argb fans. Upon opening the fan kit, I noticed the connector from the kit for 4 fan headers (label says msi/asus/asrock connector) has a 2nd pin slot that is null (no opening), but my board has all 4 pins present on the board. This means it is unusable on the board. Is there another adapter or something in the kit I am missing?

    Hello guys, I'm building my ultimate PC RIG and, obviously, I couldn't do that without CoolerMaster Components! I just bought (1 week ago) a CoolerMaster Mastercase H500M PC Case and I also bought one of the latest MSI Motherboards (MSI Z390 ACE). I know that both the PC Case and the MoBo support ARGB. My H500M has an internal ARGB Controller (screwed to a side panel) but since I want to sync the H500M Fan Lights with MSI Mystic Light (so that my FANS, MoBO, RAM, PSU and SSD are all syncronized in terms of RGB Lights), I would like to know how to proper set the wire connections up. So far I have connected the ARGB Fans from the H500M to the H500M Controller and then I connected the Controller to my JRAINBOW Connection on the Motherboard. Will this be enough to let the Motherboard control the Lights? Or do I need to connect the fans directly to my MoBo? Also I'm planning on buying a CPU RGB Watercooler. I noticed that the H500M RGB Controller has two inputs. One is being used for the RGB Fans as I mentioned above, can I use the other input for the CPU WaterCooler? Thank you very much for your help, you guys rock! Joao Pereira

    Hello there, You should check if your psu still has warranty. G650M has 5 year guarantee after buying if you have the receipt. If you don't have the receipt you can use the serial number(it shows when did psu got manufactured) of psu to check for guarantee. If your psu is eligible for RMA you can send it for replacement or repair for free. (You only need to cover shipping cost.) https://account.coolermaster.com/LogOn.aspx sign in in here. Go to my product then register your product. After that just follow instructions. But before doing all of this make sure your PSU is the problem. If you don't have a guarantee you can try a local repair shop.

    in my opinion the controller should work with the fans. just make sure you get the right controller. there is RGB and Addressable RGB (mini one). get the RGB controller for your fans.

    I'm in the same boat - zero response to my ticket, never mind getting an RMA started. 650w PS was DOA. I've gone out and bought another brand PS. Also I just returned a CM case and fans I had also purchased out of principal. Never again will I deal with CM. Lesson learned - wish I had checked their own forums first.

    Can you turn a cosmos C700p into a C700m ?
  28. 1 point
    "At Cooler Master, customer satisfaction is our number one goal." Yeah, right. Like the rest of you, I spent $300+ on a new CM Cosmos case only to have a problem with the front panel header. I've had the same experience the rest of you seem to have had - which is basically silence on Support end. They need to put my money where their mouth is and address Support issues in a timely manner.

    I am shocked nobody responded to you. To answer your 1st question about USB 3.1 and 3.0 - the Cosmo C700P comes with a USB 3.1 connection wire as you discovered but it's a little ahead of it's time so the particular motherboard you have does not have a USB 3.1 header so you're not going to plug that cable into anything unless you upgrade your motherboard that has a 3.1 header. 3.1 connections exist in the back on the i/o ports. ASMedia® USB 3.1 Gen 2 controller : 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 port(s) (1 at back panel, teal blue, Type-A, Support 3A power output) ASMedia® USB 3.1 Gen 2 controller : 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 port(s) (1 at back panel, , USB Type-CTM, Support 3A power output) Source: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/PRIME-Z370-A/specifications/ For question 3 , this is where you get your lighting and fan control speeds from. The manual could be better but basically it's identifying your sata power connectors, fan connectors and lighting connectors. I don't know a better way to explain that. Sorry it's a late response , hope it helps.

    Seeing as no one has answered this I will. NO! it's not compatible with Aura. You cannot plug the ML240/120R fan or pump LEDs into the RGB header on an ASUS MB. The Aura compatible badge on the box is a scam to get you to buy it. How do I know? Well, I have been through two ML240R's. First ones LED's died within a week. Now the replacement controller box has died and I'm waiting for Coolermaster to answer my support ticket. I only bought this watercooler cause I thought it was compatible with my ASUS Aura M/B. BTW: I have 30 years of PC experience.

    Hey CM dudes, y u not listen to what customers says? Seriously, I said this before: why in the name of something, do you make your keyboards with TWO Windows keys? Why would anyone need two Windows keys? This is an useless redundancy at the expense of a useful key which is the context menu key. Get rid of the right Windows key and bring back the context menu key! I'm looking to buy another mech. keyboard and guess what - even though I enjoy my Rapid-i, it won't be a another CM, I won't make this mistake again. Fix this or you've forever lost me as a client and I'm guessing that whoever uses keyboards for other things than gaming (don't you know, people that make games use keyboards too and they need the context menu key) uses that key just as often and therefore will look somewhere else. Pay a little attention to the "power user" crowd too. Looking forward to the new CM keyboard with a context menu key.

    Coolermaster needs to invest in better fans, they are trash, they are noisy, they make this odd rattling sound.

    I got no lights at all with both of the MA610Ps. I've returned the second cooler and ended up purchasing the ML240R. This is also supposed to be compatible with AURA. Except they haven't released the software to enable the AURA pass through (it's in beta still - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhCzkxRv8E4) It would be nice if they could release the Beta to us enthusiasts for the time being because I'm pretty over CM at this point and a gesture like that would go toward nullifying how I currently feel toward the company.

    Yeah you are looking for 'new' ideas. But what good are those if you cannot support them once available? The C700P case is beautiful but you cannot get the accessories for it. Looking over some of the other cases, there are similar stories. The lack of support is troubling. So new idea? Stand by what you are selling now. Make sure parts and accessories are available.

    I bought the masterliquid ml240r aio cooler, added another fan (mf120l) connected it to the led controller but it wont change light effects. It just stays on the light blue color. The ml240r fans' led connectors are 3 pin while the mf120l is 4 pin. Or should i buy the mf120r? But my question before buying is, is the mf120r led connector 3 pin or 4 pin? If its 3 pin i guess it will work with the led controller included in the box.

    Hello I'm just writing here to ask if anyone knows how to get their hands on Cooler Master Hyper 212 Fan clips?? I really love my headsink keeps it nice and cool but when I removed it to clean the fan and add new thermal paste the clip broke :'( So now my fan is making this nasty noise :/ Can anyone send a link to buy new clips? I don't wanna re buy the whole thing. Thanks for your time

    Hey John, I too experienced the same issue shortly after installing the MasterLiquid 120 lite CPU Cooler. Have you tried checking your motherboard fan settings in the BIOS? I found that the MSI motherboard that I'm using defaults the CPU and pump headers to use the PWM mode (with 4 pin plug). From what I found in other forums, the pump on these coolers (with 3 pin plug) need a steady supply of power so you want to set the pump header to use the DC mode. After updating the pump header setting, I verified that the other fans were set to the correct mode, saved changes and restarted. After that, all was nice and quiet. No more noises from the pump and the CPU is nice and cool since. I hope this helps. - Alex

    Hi Apollo, You might have turned on the repeat rate. Press FN+ F5 to set it back to 1x. FN+F5= Repeat rate 1x FN+F6= Repeat rate 2x FN+F7= Repeat rate 4x FN+F8= Repeat rate 8x Let me know if this solves the issue

    Engraving your case is an incredibly rewarding thing to do to your case. It's one of the best ways of adding a totally unique feature and to make it stand out from the rest. You can engrave practically any design onto a metal section of your case. Best results are achieved with a painted/powdercoated/annodised case (most black cases have black powdercoated side panels). You'll need a selection of engraving tips for this task. The larger ball tips are good for engraving/shading large areas, while smaller nibs or tips can be useful for tracing outlines for crisp edges. We'll be using the template/transfer method, whereby you print your logo or image to be engraved onto a piece of paper, and use this as a guide to engrave your design onto your case. Logos like Cooler Master are fairly easy to trace. However if you want to engrave a more complicated images, say a fighter jet, you fist need to perform a bit of photo editing. Don't worry, it's quite easy and all you need is the free editing program called Paint.net [download here] Install and open paint then load your image. Under Adjustments, select and apply Invert Colours. Now go to the Effects menu and under artistic, select Ink Sketch. If need be adjust the Ink Outline slider bar to reduce the noise in the photo. Now go back and invert the colours again. This will have the effect of creating bold outlines and details that are easy to follow when you're engraving. For our example we've used a simple Cooler Master logo. All you need to do is print it out. Trim the paper to size so you can tape it to your case at the edges. Ensure there are no ripples in the paper and that it's secured firmly - you don't want it moving around while you are engraving. Make sure the area you intend to engrave is flat and free of features such as grilles or windows. The easiest way to engrave is to use a Dremel with a Flexible attachment. This allows you to use the engraving tip like a pen, which means the rest is as easy as colouring in a picture. It also means you're able to be far more accurate as using a Dremel alone is quite heavy and awkward to use. Before you start work on your image, get used to the various tips and how quickly they cut into the paint and metal. If possible use a hidden section of the case or old case to practice on. Start in the middle of the image and work your way out. In our example we began with the letters of the logo, tracing their outlines but doing any inner details first. Once you cut the outline the letter will come loose. Use the detail tip for the edges and the large ball tip for shading in the larger areas. You'll gradually work your way through the paper and reveal the bear metal beneath the paint. Once you do this, move on to other areas, focussing on keeping within your template. Once you're done with the letters, move on to the external ring. Once you cut through this, the whole template will come away so it's best to do this last. You'll probably need to remove the template and make some finishing touches to the engraving, clearing away any old paint from the silver letters so the look the same colour all over. If you've strayed into areas you didn't mean to engrave, you can touch these up with a black marker pen or paint brush. That's it! The great thing about engraving is that you can do it to practically any area of your case and the more you practice the better you'll get.
