MasterFan Pro RGB LEDs dim/not working

Recommended Posts

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?

For anyone having this same issue looking for answers... if your fan speeds are controlled by the BIOS to adjust speed as needed, or if they are set to a quiet mode, the fans spin slower and the LED is dimmer, or off. When powering on the system you might get a bright flash as the computer POST. In Windows, using the ASUS Ai utility for Fan XPert, if I click "full speed" I get the full brightness... if I click "quiet" mode the LED dims a lot. 


The LED power for these fans is provided by the power connector, NOT the RGB wire.
