Hi everyone, I’ve received my components to start my new build and I had a bunch of questions regarding what I’ll be able to do with SignalRGB.
Here are the rgb components I got
Deepcool CF120 PLUS (12)
ASrock z790 PG lightning motherboard
Gskill Trident Z5 rgb ram
Custom Bykski Zotac water gpu block with RGB
Barrow CPU block (rgb)
From what I can tell, only my ram would be supported out of the box. I’ll install 10 of the fans in the case, Can I add them as led strips via a compatible rgb controller and control the inner leds and outer halo leds separately ? How would I control 10 of them ? 2 controllers ?
Also, for the other components that are not specifically listed, would signalRGB see them and allow me to add them manually or would i have to “code” them in ?
To individually control 12 fans, the GPU block and the CPU block, you would either
need 3x Razer Chroma ARGB Controllers (6 headers each) or 2x ZALMAN Z-Sync Controllers (8 headers each), or any mix of supported lighting controllers to get to at least 14 headers.
As mainboards usually only have 2x USB 2.0 headers, you’d need a powered internal USB 2.0 HUB as well if you choose more than 2 controllers.
A valid option would be a NZXT Internal USB HUB GEN3
As ar as I know each of the Deepcool CF120 Plus fans has 18 leds, so those would fit well into the limits of both mentioned controllers.
How many leds do the GPU/CPU blocks sport?
If there’s no predefined Components in SignalRGB already for those devices, you can generate them with SRGBmods Custom LED Strip Component Generator, that features a “dual circle” setting that lets you correctly control those leds.
