Hey guys. 

 

I recently purchased the CoolerMaster MB 530P. 

 

Connecting the Adressable RGB fans with the reset button seems impossible to me. 

 

The are only 2 connectors for the I/O panel which is tge POWER SW and HDD LED. Is this correct? Isn't there supposed to be more?? POWER LED, RESET and the rest? 

 

My power button doesn't even light up and only 1 fan is lighting up in white, I have no RGB effects happening. 

 

The only connection I don't have connected at this point is the 3 pin 5v connector that is supposed to go to the motherboard, but as my motherboard only has a 4 pin 12v rgb header, I didn't connect it anywhere. 

 

Please help me resolve this issue.

Hi Tim,

 

There is also a Sata cable coming from the I/O panel, did you also connect this one to the PSU Sata cable?

I have the same problem. Also the case says it comes with the argb controller and mine did not have it. How can I get that? My 3 way splitter cable is also fried because the instructions are non existent and im guessing I hooked it up to the wrong thing.

Hi Kurt,

 

Sorry to hear this trouble :( 

You can submit a support ticket on the CM Fanzone website to request a new ARGB splitter cable. 

 

The MB530P comes with an ARGB LED controller (button on the control panel). 

You only have to connect the 3 way splitter cable to the ARGB cable coming from the I/O panel and connect the Sata cable/connector what is also coming from the I/O panel to a Sata cable from your power supply. 

 

Once you have connect both ARGB and Sata cable, you can control the ARGB lightning with the button on the top panel. 

 

How to connect:

I have a similar questions about the cable hookup.  My board is a Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro, which has headers for both RGB and ARGB (digital).  Questions:

  1. What does the 3-pin cable labeled "Gigabyte" connect to?
  2. Will  the case power button light up when the POWER SW cable is connected?  (normally there is a separate cable for POWER LED)

Thanks,

Bill
