  1. Hi CM sent me a "new controller" "they had laying around". But it didn't fix the RGB LED failure. These things are complete rubbish. This will be the second time I've had to send back one of these junk coolers because of LED failures. Oh and the Pump LEDs have decided to go haywire now, not a one colour sort of blinking really fast and random. Really poor quality LEDS. I suggest buying a different brand as it's more than obvious that CM are making garbage when it comes to RGB LEDs on their coolers. I'll be sending mine back and if I get a replacement I'll sell that on ebay and get a brand like Thermaltake Water 3.0 Riing RGB. Very disappointed with CM.
  2. Raffy I'll be burning the fans with the water cooler if I cant get them to work. I'll post a vid on youtube if I can't get a controller.
  3. I'm also now stuck trying to even buy a replacement controller. As they don't list them anywhere on their website. they have a different rgb controller, but it;s not the same as what comes with the ML240R.
  4. It can't be the mobo as the controller is stand alone. And it was working but stopped all of a sudden. I'm just left feeling that CM are not interested in addressing production quality or the fact that they didn't bother to link the software or user manual, which i have now found online.
  5. Hi. I've just received a replacement ML240R because the first one died. Yep died. No lights on the pump and one of the fans. Now within 2 hours of installing the replacement, it looks like the controller has stopped working.The pump and fan are still running but no LED's at all.I have tried all the button, checked all the cables, tried different ports on the controller. Nothing works. It just sits there doing nothing. Even when I plug in a working Coolermaster MasterFan Pro it doesn't light up.You can see in the image below that there are lights on the controller but its not powering the lights on the fans or the pump. I have placed a support ticket with CM support but I wanted to share my frustration with this product. And as I have been through the forums looking for answers I have come across a lot of people who have the same problem with these as I do.Namely,The terrible manual,The lack of diagram explaining button functions on the controller.No troubleshooting guide.The lack fact that this watercooler IS NOT Aura compatible.No it's not!You can not plug this watercooler or it's fans into the Asus RGB header. Seeing as I'm forced to use the controller that came with this watercooler I need to make sure I get a replacement THAT WORKS!Getting fed up with playing this game with CM as this is the second ML240R I've had that had had bad LED problems.

  7. 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.
