  1. Coolermaster Rgb controller not working.

    So i cant get my rgb controller to work. All my fans are getting power as they are rotating through the rbg colours but the software says connect device and in device manger It is saying Unknown USB device ( Device Descriptor Request Failed). have tried all the common fixes. Started with drivers uninstalled and reinstall(also uninstalled and reset to let windows update automatically). Double checked all the wiring was correct still same issue. Tried both headers and they are working(have my front 2.0 running off 1 and they are working fine in both slots). Tried the controller in my friends machine and it worked with no issues software could run and adjust the LED's. Tried re-installing the software on my machine with a folder wipe also but just get the same thing asking me to connect the device and in manager "Device Descriptor Request Failed" still. If its working in my friends machine it shouldnt be faulty ? Anyone got any idea's iam scratching my head about it.
  2. My fans are connected directly to my z370 aorus ultra gaming but they don't show up in RGB fusion and I have no idea how to control them.
  3. I´ve bought the cooler master masterkeys lite l combo rgb 2 months ago.It never had a problem but since 3 days the dpi button doesn´t work anymore and the rgb lights in the mice got stuck on the one that i had left .So i can´t change the colors and the effects and neither the DPIs but the left buttons still work the ones that are used to go back and return. Please someone responde i really love the mice
  4. i got this combo about 6 months ago. about 2 days ago i noticed that the 2 lighting points on my mouse are acting weird. i have it set on rainbow mode. when the bottom light is switching from green to blue, the wheel stays at green but then turns back on to red, and stays like that until the bottom light finishes switching from pink to red, and the cycle repeats. this is also shown on static mode. when i have it on pink the wheel stays red, when i have it on blue the wheel is turned off or turned on green, and when the bottom one is white the top one is yellow. is there any fix for that? p.s yes my room is very dusty is it looks like in the photos XD
  5. RGB Controller Not Recognized

    I just purchased 3 140 mm rgb case fans that come with the controller along with a 120mm rgb fan separate. The fans light up and spin, cooler master symbol lights up, but the software (v1.03) does not recognize the controller and asks me to "plug in my CM device."
  6. Masterbox Lite 5 RGB

    Hey I'm a New Pc Builder I never built a pc before (Yes I'm a Noob) here is my build I'm going to buy https://pcpartpicker.com/user/djhenry88/saved/7XzxYJ except change the 1050 ti to a gtx 10606gb and change the Ryzen 5 1600x to the new Ryzen that is coming out in February the Ryzen 2400g now my question is since I have the MasterBox Lite 5 RGB is it compatible with the ML240L RGB? When I say compatible I mean will the radiator fit in the case and where does it go?
  7. MasterAir MA410p RGB Does Not Light Up

    Hello, I purchased and installed a CoolerMaster MasterAir MA410P RGB heatsink. It does not light up and the buttons on the controller won't do anything. I connected the controller to a 4 pin molex connector but there still does not appear to be any power getting to the lights. The fan itself works fine. If anyone could offer me some advice for this issue, I would much appreciate it. Thanks, Payton
  8. RGB confusion

    I have a C700p and teh fan/RGB controller that came with it, 3 Phanteks Halo, and 3 Cooler Master RGB Fans and an RGB Controller that came with. The former controller looks like it works off your MOBO 4 Pin LED, the later works off of USB and software. I will probably get an ASUS motherboard or Gigabyte. Will the CM software pick them all up, will the ASUS or GB software? I plan on running the 3 halos from the controller that came with the 700p and the 3 CMs fans with the controller that came with them.
  9. I recently bought the Masterair MA610P, it worked the first time I installed it, after that it just stopped showing any colour exept for green. after restarting my computer, it just stopped displaying any colour at all. all drivers are up to date, the Fans themselves work perfectly. I have no idea what I did wrong. please help me
  10. I recently purchased the MasterBox 5 Lite RGB for my current setup and just spent most of today relocating my setup to it. After a lot of trouble trying to figure out how to handle mounting the radiator, I finally got everything set up the way I wanted to, but when I'm running games (Overwatch, for example) I'm running CPU and GPU temps and rather high levels - higher than I had seen in my previous case. My H100iV2 is currently mounted to the front of the case, with two of the three RGB fans providing air in and the two Corsair fans pulling that air through. My thought is that there's not enough air flowing through the case to allow for this kind of setup, but I really don't see any other way to get this set up. Any recommendations? Would be nice if Cooler Master put in a recommended AIO setup into their guide.
  11. I recently bought a Masterbox Lite 5 RGB for my brother to replace his old and flimsy case. The only issue we ran into was with the middle fan's RGB. We built the computer, connected the RGB splitter to all the fans, turned it on, and no RGB on the middle fan. We downloaded the RGB control for his motherboard (ASRock's version), and attempted to resolve the issue. The issue then turned into incorrect interpretation of the RGB colors. The 2 other fans appear to be working as expected, though. With all of that said, below is the list of troubleshooting we tried with no success on resolving the issue: Disconnect the RGB header from the middle fan and connect it to the other headers that are working correctly. Change the frequency and color coming from the motherboard. (this resulted in weird colors coming through on the middle one that did not match the others Another important note is that they are all attached directly to the power supply through 1 molex converter. Any advice on what to try? Also if I have to get a new one, is Cooler Master willing to just replace the fan? I'd really rather not return the whole case if it's not necessary.
  12. Rebuilding my Rig!! Advice needed.

    Hello friends from Cooler Master and Happy New year. Recently i builded my gaming rig but had to use some old items due to low budget, now its my time to fix the last few colors and items in my build to make it fully perfect. My current Build Rig is this: Ryzen 5 1600 @3.8ghz Cpu cooler stock Asus Strix B350-f Gaming mobo ddr4 2x4gb 2800mhz HyperX Fury MSI gtx1060 6gb Gaming X 250gb SSD Samsung evo 600gb Sata 7.200 RPM Thermaltake overseer white edition full tower case Thermaltake TR2 700w PSU So let me go straight to the point. I felt in love with these items from cooler master and they are already in my basket from a greek shop. (im Greek ) i have to check for compatibility first and or any ideas from you very please. I want these: CoolerMaster H500P (the best case i have ever seen so far) it is made for me and my eyes CoolerMaster MasterAir MA610P to replace the stock cooler from Ryzen. (and if possible to push the oc a little bit higher) will it be possible? 2 pieces of these fans to place them on top as exhaust Cooler Master MasterFan MF200R RGB and 1 piece of Cooler Master MasterFan Pro 120 Air Balance RGB to replace the black rear thats default on H500P for more color and style. With these items my gaming Rig will just go beyond this world in terms of look , style and uniqueness So please im here to do a couple questions regarding this build: 1. Are all the cables long enough to reach my mobo and also in combination of the included 3-1 rgb splitter that comes with the case? ( do i need any extra cables to fit everything properly or its going to work like this? ) 2. Can i possibly use a VGA riser to place my card verticaly with this CPU Cooler? *MA610P* if Not im still fine and happy with it. 3. I will be using the included 3-1 rgb splitter to connect the 3 pieces of Cooler Master MasterFan MF200R RGB the 2 front and 1 top or the 2 top and 1 front into one out of the two RGB Headers thats available on my mobo, and the other one left over straight to the other RGB header. are the cables length enough for that? same as 1st question plz. because the 2 MasterFans are in front and the other 2 on top. there will be any trouble combining all the 4 pieces of MasterFans 200m from the front and top into my mobos RGB headers? *The rear Cooler Master MasterFan Pro 120 Air Balance i will just use the button on its back for auto color. not gona connect it to any RGB header. 4. What do you think about this build? for me it will transform the overall look and im going to love it very much. i was waiting for a long time to see a good case like the H500P. 5. Maybe any sort of suggestions? Did i missed something? Are the items that i plan to buy and rebuild gona work flawless in my Rig and with my hardware? Thanks in advance and for reading my post, forgive me for my not so good english (i come from Greece). I wait forward for your honest reply and your opinion about what i plan to buy and build. p.s i also have 2 pieces of blue cold cathode lights, i will see where gona place them inside the case when i will finish building it.
  13. Hi, I just installed my 3 in 1 MasterFan pro RGB 120 fans and control box. However, the lights are controlled by the rpm of the fans. If the fans are at full speed (I am using fan xpert) the fans leds work perfect, but If I lower it it will dim and not follow the rest of the lights in the case... How can I fix this? Asus RoG Maximus VII Ranger 16GB HyperX Fury
  14. Lite 5 RGB won't light up

    I have to thanks for your time for reading this post So i have done a bit research, i am using a MSI z270 gaming plus, and a MSI z170 SLI, bought a tower Lite 5 RGB on newegg. I didn't find the port labelled "12v g r b" on both motherboard, the only thing i find i can plug it in is port JFP2. Does this mean my mobo don't support the rgb fans? Any help appreciated. Thanks
  15. Hi, I had my Octane keyboard + mouse combo for about a year when suddenly the lights in the keyboard wouldn't just turn on any more. I stopped using it for 6 months or so but I really like this keyboard and want to use it in dark environments, which at the moment is impossible as I can't see which key is which. Is it possible to get this fixed, or get a replacement part? I'm happy to open up the keyboard and install the part myself (got good soldering skills). The keyboard works perfectly otherwise, every single key, just the lights have stopped working.. I would really not want to throw this into the bin, just because the lights are not working.. I'm really enjoying CM products but if they start dying so quickly, I'm not sure I can justify buying a new keyboard every year.. Many thanks, PJ
  16. I have the masterfan pro 120 kit with four rgb fans and a controller. The fans work fine when running with the power cables connected to mobo pins only....but when i attempt to connect the rgb cables to the controller, connect it to usb header, and connect it to a SATA power strip, the system shuts down immediately after bootup. Any suggestions? I'm using GA Z270X Gaming 7 MOBO.
  17. Hi guys. I recently installed the Masterliquid 240L as part of a CPU/Mobo and Case upgrade. So far so good, however my pump and the two fans refuse to light up. I have connected one of the Molex connectors to my Power Supply, however there is a male and female molex included and I cant connect both. Do both of these need to be connected? Thanks.
  18. Asus Aura RGB Issues

    Hi, is anyone else having color accuracy issues with Asus? I have a ROG Strix z270e motherboard and I can somewhat interface with the lights on the outside of the case through the RGB header, but the color is extremely inaccurate. There is one specific color that I'd like, but it's impossible to get it there. For example, I can use the lights just fine using the button on the case, but when I control via motherboard and select teal, I get a purpleish color. When I select purple, I get a yellow color. I've tried calibrating and switching the cable both ways on the header, but no luck. When I do the calibration, it asks what color I see, Red Green and Blue, but it only shows Red, Purple and Yellow.
  19. Hi there, I want to mod the Mastercase Maker 5's front I/O and make it RGB instead of just red - Is it possible to remove the entire unit from the case in order to do this? Also, anyone know if getting into the I/O component is possible or have a picture of the inside of the casing? I'm hoping that Cooler Master will make a controllable panel at some point - perhaps with the USB 2.0 removed and a 3.1 / 3.2 interface with the new connector added in its place. Heres hoping. Cheers! (Photos are just a crude reference of what I want to do...apologies for the rubbish quality)
  20. Keyboard LEDs broken

    The F4, F5 and pause keys are emitting a low level blue light and the LED on the F6 key shows a completlely different colour even though I have set it all to be static and blue (0, 205, 255). I searched up a fix and theres nothing, ive tried factory reseting and unplugging, still doesnt work. I havent had the keyboard for more than a few months and the lights are being weird, is there any fix or will I have to send it in to Cooler Master? As im writing this something new is happening, the F6 key is now flickering between blue and green. I have a profile that turns all the lights off but the F4, F5 and pause keys are emitting a low level blue light.
  21. I just bought the MasterFan Pro Air Pressure RGB Case fan. The fan itself is working fine, however the LEDs do not seem to be working properly. I do not have an RGB controller so am just using the red or blue settings. When set to blue, the LED lights up for 1 second on startup and then turns off. When set to red, the LED stays on but quite dimly, and flashes to full brightness for 1 second when the computer turns off. I have tried two different system fan plugs with the same result. Is there something I can do to fix this, or is the product faulty?
  22. I really thought these were going to be the best fans on the market. Theyre a combination of a good coolermaster fan reminiscent of the xtraflo fan from the 212 evo, and RGB LEDS which can never go wrong. The big issue is noise. These things sound like a lawnmower. The noise gets worse at higher rpms and much better at lower rpms so its not bearing noise, its a form of coil whine. Theres also control issues such as the fan not even going to 0 rpms on pwm, and if you use voltage, the leds turn off as you lower the voltage. The PCB is too bloated. The design has 4 super bright leds, a pwm mosfet, probably some led mosfets, 4 giant radial coils, an overcomplicated driver and finally, the leds are powered off of the fan header instead of the simpler solution of just using RGB power.
  23. Masterfan Pro RGB

    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?
  24. HAF Pipe 480 (Spectrum Edition) This build is a collaboration between Richard Prins from Designs By Richard (myself) and Yorick Smilda (AKA ProAce), for the last 8 months we worked on an LED controller that could do something not possible with other controllers, control addressable LED strips and CoolForce LED fittings together to create a new kind of light show. After a couple tests and revisions we have a final one made for a project, initially it would have been a build with another manufacturer but due to unavailability we decided to not wait any longer and do a casemod with the controller, we are planning to do more casemods with this controller and we are dubbing the line-up “Project Spectrum” after the initial Project name and builds in the line-up will be known for the “(Spectrum Edition)” Yorick and myself have been have been planning this for about a month, to get this build started Yorick came over to my house for a couple days to work on the project, help out with the LED work, do some extra coding and much more, together we got pretty far and this first post will show some of the things we did on the build. Specifications: Hardware CPU: Intel 5820K Motherboard: ASUS Rampage V Extreme (X99) RAM: Klevv DDR4 Cras White LED 4x4GB (16GB) GPU's: ASUS GTX 780 DCII (x2) PSU: Cooler Master V1200 SSD's: Klevv Urbane U610 480GB (x1) and Samsung 850 Series EVO 500GB (x2 Raid 0) HDD: Western Digital Velociraptor 1TB Case: Cooler Master HAF X (modded to fit a 480mm radiator and a full lenth PSU cover) Watercooling EKWB CSQ Acrylic CPU Block (Polished) EKWB CSQ GTX 780 Block (x2 Polished) EKWB D5 Pump Block and D5 pump Nanoxia CoolForce (16mm) Fittings including LED fittings.

Custom designed and programmed LED controller For this new build I took to the attic to pull my old Cooler Master HAF X case out of storage after I had done 2 builds with this case before and I had been using other cases for my workstation, this case has been modified to hold a 480mm radiator in the top which I am using again. Big thanks to the sponsors for this project. Klevv sent us their CRAS RAM for a project that ended up being canceled and told me to use it in the next build we would do so here it is, sweet white LED glory to fit in with the RGB lighting (better than red lights of course) Nanoxia CoolForce has been my trusty supplier for water cooling tubing and fittings, these are the LED fittings we will be using I'll be using the V1200 which Cooler Master sponsored for a different project, due to the delay that project is going through I told them I would use it in this build. In the 2015 update build I did with it I had a PSU cover made with mounting points for the pump, HDD and an SSD, on the side it shows my old logo and the casemod name, before it had red acrylic and red LED lighting behind it so we tore it out and replaced it with clear acrylic which has been rough sanded on one side in a single direction (brushed), we then added aluminium tape which gives it a unique look, almost as if it's brushed aluminium, when the lighting is off and when it is on it reflects any light to make sure everything lights up nice and bright. *We made sure there was no possibility for the tape to come in contact with wiring or any other chance of shorting out the LED work. A quick test using the rainbow mode to make sure the LED’s all function as they should and it looks amazing, we'll definitly use this mode in the final build. 20170102_195435.mp420170102_195435.mp4 (50MB video, video is also on my Facebook page) The last time I used this case I noticed the front fan kept hitting the metal it was mounted on so a quick trim solved that. In the build we will be lighting up several blocks including the GPU blocks, these are two ASUS GTX 780 DCII GPU’s with EKWB CSQ blocks which I sanded and polished to a clear finish together and black backplates, I still had these in my collection and they would fit right in the build. This is what they looked like in my 2015 update build. And this is what they looked like with a little test for this build after we added the LED strips and hooked up the controller. We made a gif! (great to see that format is supported on this forum) GPU Project Spectrum (HAF Pipe 480).mp4 (30MB file download, video is also on my Facebook page) We hooked up all the LED strips including the ones in the case and after those 3 days it was time for Yorick to head home after all the work we had done, sadly when I put power on the controller later that day something went wrong and the LED strips (all but the PSU cover strips) got fried, we think it might have been a surge through the controller so Yorick worked on a re-design but until then we can not show the whole system lit up. There we are after 3 days of hard work in the attic where I work on systems, the table is a mess but it's worth it, we got a lot done but still a lot to do. The day after Yorick went home I started on to get back to work on the layout for the water cooling loop, a lot of puzzling was done to see what the cleanest look would be. First test to see if parallel would be the best way to do this loop (spoiler: I went with serial even though this looked pretty nice) Mounting the CPU block and this time I decided not to go with Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut like the last two times but to once again use Liquid Metal and go with Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut, we are a couple weeks further and temps are looking mighty fine, thanks to Thermal Grizzly for their support Some piping done after I decided on the layout for the tubing. After some serious bending of which the photo's seem to have disappeared (dying camera) this was the result, I've filled up the system for testing and since I wanted to use the PC until the final controller and the new LED work is done. The GPU blocks are not the only water blocks to receive the treatment, I designed this small bracket for the EK CPU block to add some LED's to it, we are going to a place where RGB overkill does not exist! The left is a Cooler mod we are doing for Cooler Master, the right is the EK CPU block bracket, all parts are designed by me and 3D printed by Yorick. I might have missed something, it's late but I will add/change anything if I notice it. The next update shouldn't take long, we received the PCB for the final version of the controller and only have to wait for a few items to be shipped before I can take it apart again and we can install everything as planned. PS: My apologies for the terrible photo's (some at least), my DSLR was dying at the time and sadly some photo's are missing, I now have a brand new one so the update photo's will all be made with that.
  25. Project 303

    After not doing a lot of modding for a while, I wanted to try it again. After seeing the In Win 303 on Gamescom I was sold, that was going to be my next project. It is one of the nicest 'payable' cases I have seen so far. And one email conversation later, a 303 arrived at my doorstep My idea for this case is to make a magnificent showcase in a black and white colour scheme. This is going to look awesome in combination with the LED magic which will be included. I don't work with sketches, but the plans are stored... in my head. First up, whoever came up with the idea of the blue LED front plate. After a lot of sanding, it already looked a lot better. In Win also shipped me a second glass side panel, so I can fit that on the other side of the case. This won't fit standard, but that will be solved soon. After that, you will be able to see everything that is going on inside the case, that leaves me with the task to cover everything up. At first, I tried to adjust the original side panel, but that didn't come out as slick as I wanted it to be. Most of the LED's have been cut to length, cabled and sleeved. I just can't put them in already because I'm still working on the controller that is gonna make it really pop out. At this point, I teamed up with DBRichard to also make these LEDs and my controller in his Spectrum lineup. LED's meet the DBR HAF 480: For more of that, follow his Instagram. I already had an In Win Pro-1 headphone stand, just because it looks awesome. But in the spirit of this project, it needed some more... color. So now it is also Spectrum edition Next up will be some acryl work, sleeving and metal working! See you next time!
