    Sorry, I don't know. I don't use Aura or RGB lights. It could be which motherboard header you have the lights plugged into. There are static RGB headers and addressable RGB headers on this board anyway. Just a guess.

    I'm pretty good with RGB stuff, what are you trying to do?

    I think he has a Thermaltake Floe Riing RGB?

    @Cliff Is there software installed to run that? Are the Phateks RGB strips connected to Aura headers on the motherboard? Do they appear in Asus Aura software? Have you "added" strips in the Aura software?

    What Phateks fans do you have?

    I got everything working now(this morning I found out my front panel HD audio wasn't seated correctly too, when I tried my headphones)

    The TT Floe Riing's problem with the pump RGB not working was, there are 2 very small USB connectors, one for the controller, and one that connects to additional controllers(if one has any, I don't) I had the wrong one connedted, like I thought last night, but was too tired to mess around with it.

    The 2 addressable RGB strips connector was also not seated correctly were I have two strips connect togeather, The must have separated a little as I was adjusting the position.

    And lastly I took a look at the RGB controller for the two front fans that come with the case, and saw it has a different connector than the cables(to the HALO fan frames) do(only 2 pins it looks). I might be able to disconnect that, and use an extension cable and connect the fans to the motherboard by using one of the open daisy chain connectors.
    But for now I'll leave it.

    @Cliff

    Glad it's going! That stuff can get confusing some times. So are you using Asus Aura to control your RGB strips? I have not tried running RGB strips of the motherboard Aura headers before. I suppose I am a Corsair fan, all my RGB is Corsair.

    My RGB setup:

    Radiator fans: Floe Ring TT RGB Plus

    Back outtake fan & two 40cm RGB strips & Motherboard: AURA

    Video Card: Zotac's Spectra

    2 front Phanteks fans and one 1 meter RGB: the cases controller

    To be honest, I really hate need to use all that software, to set stuff up, and it doesn't even have the same effects, except for static & breathing, but they're boring.

    The only positive is, except for the Riing fans(which have the PWM controller too), all the other programs don't need to run in the background(system tray) once set.

    I don't need a holiday to enjoy bling.
    But it looks nicer when the PC matches the wallpaper and Windows theme I create on my system.
