    I need help with 5 pin grbw headers on a Gigabyte motherboard


    is there a such a thing a 4 pin grb to a 5 pin grbw adapter? I can't find any anywhere to buy any. I know the W pin isn't necessary.

    Thanks

    I should specify further what I need is a female 5 pin connector to a male 4 pin connector. Thats a great video I watched it last night.

    Thanks for the reply.

    OK, then. Now that your specs are more refined, I can't find anything either. You could probably build something yourself, though... Or, you can plow through this eBay search and see if anything useful pops out of it: 4 pin female to 5 pin male rgb to rgbw adapter | eBay
    Wow! Aaargh! I feel your pain...

    I'm thinking that I'll clip the squeeze clips off the housing since the RGB W pin isn't required. the RGB cable is no loss anyway, and I think the motherboard won't have any issues.

    I don't see why that wouldn't work. Give it a try and let us know what happens. Thanks,

    I got the strip to work with the Gigabyte RGB extender. However, The Female RGB header doesn't match the Male header pin length. I got it to work by holding the strip and the extender together.

    I really don't want to hold the wires together all the time, I'm going to tape the two together. :)

    Good plan! Tape doesn't get bored, and it doesn't stop you from doing other stuff! Thanks for the laugh, though... ��
