  1. Hiya. I currently own the MasterLiquid ML240L RGB, and the MasterFan MF120R ARGB 3in1. They both came with an RGB controller, although it seems like the one from the case fans is a bit newer. My first question is, how do I sync these products with software (I have an MSI motherboard with MysticLight)? My second question is, are there any cables I need to purchase (I see a USB Mini input on the RGB controllers, so maybe a Mini USB to USB 9 header)? Thanks in advance!
  2. First, to put some perspective I'll start explaining that I live in Argentina, where custom components are either unattainable cause you can't find them or just ridiculously expensive if you don't actually make your livelihood from building and customizing PCs, so you can justify expending a s**tton of money on PC parts. The x3 fan pack of Pro 120 RGB costs U$D 55 in the USA and U$D 100 here, or the cheapest built 2080ti at U$D 1666. But anyway, I'm rambling... I recently purchased a MasterLiquid Maker 240 (on its way) while checking every part for future upgradeability and decided to puchase an extra fan in case I want to updgrade the radiator to 360mm and not find the fan available when the time comes. Researched the part numbers and everything and bought an extra retail Masterfan Pro 120 RGB Air balance (from now on, the Pro 120 AB, on its way too with the Maker 240), which share the exact same part number and label on the back. Pictures below taken from http://vishveshtech.blogspot.com/2018/01/cooler-master-masterliquid-maker-240.html (fans from the Maker 240 package) and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56D48iKyj7U (retail Pro 120 AB). Now... little did I know that the retail Pro 120 AB is a 1300 rpm fan with SP of 0.96 mmH2O unlike the ones that come in the Maker 240 bundle, which are 2000 rpm with SP of 2.34 mmH2O. Yes, I'm a freaking idiot, why didn't I check the specs which are available at CM's site. Well, just a fumble. Considering that the return policies in my country, unlike in the US or Europe, are basically "No, go f*** yourself, not our problem if it wasn't what you needed" unless the part is actually defective and most be RMA'ed, I'm stuck with it (maybe resell it used so it's not a total loss). So, the question is: what retail/purchasable fan in the CM stack can be compared the closest to the bundled fans on the Maker 240 while being aesthetically similar/identical? Because unless I sell them all and buy a whole new set of fans, this is a problem that I am gonna run into in the future. If I ever want to upgrade the radiator to 360mm, I'm s*** out of luck with the fans unless I put a completely unmatched fan (by specs or looks) alongside the original ones. So, the 240 radiator goes and so do the fans, no reuse value, just nonsense. I was checking the MF120R, which are almost the same (except for ARGB vs RGB?), at 2000 rpm/2.14 mmH2O SP, closer to the originals' specs than the retail Pro 120 AB (which has the exact same part number and name and EVERYTHING...) and look basically identical, so just be sacrificing a little of SP on that 3rd fan, which should be just unmeasurable. I would have been actually OK with the Pro 120 AB having a little less SP if the rpms matched with the bundle fans, so not to have such a disparity in speed. For now, it seems I'll have to cut my loses and sell them all and buy a new set of fans when the time comes. Any help? TL;DR: the Maker 240 bundled fans have the same part number and label than the Masterfan Pro 120 RGB Air balance but substantially different specs (200 vs 1300 rpm/ 2.34 vs 0.96 mmH2O SP). Any CM fan that looks like the bundled fans with similar specs, mainly speed? In case you can't see the attachments https://imgur.com/a/83vTKfi
  3. I recently installed a masterfan MF120R A-RGB fan on a gigabyte b450 wifi pro motherboard. The fan is powered and spinning, but the RGB lights are not working. Could this be a compatibility issue, or is there a driver I might be missing? thanks
  4. Hi all, I am about to start my first custom pc build, but I am already a huge fan of Cooler Master, and will include at least 10 Cooler Master components in my build. At the moment, I need some help figuring out how to intelligently control fans that are both PWM and RGB. I'm choosing CM's MC500P Case and will replace the stock case fans with a total of 6 MasterFan Pro 140 Air Flow RGB. The motherboard will be a latest generation Asus, with which I'd like to use Aura Sync for the fan RGB as well as some other LED components such as an LED strip. The mobo has the following relevant headers: 1 x Aura Addressable Strip Header, 1 x Aura RGB Strip Header, 1 x 5-pin EXT_FAN(Extension Fan) connector, 1 x Thermal sensor connector(s), 1 x Front fan, 1 x Rear Fan, and 1 x PUMP Fan. As mentioned, I would like to be able to control all 6 fans such that... (1) The fan speeds are intelligently adjusted according to internal temperatures, (2) The RGB of the fans are synced with Asus Aura, and (3) Also still be able to connect some other RGB components to be synced to Aura as well, such as an RGB strip. Other than that, I don't really care which headers are used (e.g. I would be fine with all 6 fans chained to one or two headers via adapters or controllers). I am willing to use whatever RGB/fan controllers or cable adapters that are necessary. I listed the relevant components here: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Heracleidus/saved/QrTXHx Thanks in advance!

  5. I've had this product for about a month now and it looks great! Really liking the product. Some other products (that shall remain unnamed) take advantage of the addressing functions of LED strips. I notice that there is a function to update firmware. Will a future firmware update be able to have more advanced LED effects? It would be really cool to have LED effects that reflect CPU temperature or the like. Below are some pics of the box i'm using this product in.
  6. So these fans have been out of stock in the US for a while now. Both amazon and New Egg have them sold out, and there is no light at the end of this tunnel it seems. Is there anywhere someone could buy these (even if they're overseas) that won't charge an exuberant amount of money?
