  1. No go, was told to check in a few weeks via the website. I really wanted to use Tt as I blew a positive Amazon balance on a Riing Premium setup last year for my old HTPC in a HAF XB. 4x Riing 14 Plus Premium and 1x Riing 12 Plus Premum as well as the older, not software controlled 4pin 12v LED strips and controller. I've used Corsair HD series fans+Commander as well as NXZT's Hue and both don't measure up to the Riing. I've seen people bash it for the software being clunky but I found it easy and intuitive. The only thing that was holding it back was software integrated LED controller so I could run all my lights off a single ecosystem. When I noticed the Pacific Lumi it was an easy choice. Normally you'd think 3 LED strips would be the max you'd want to use but I'm building in an EVGA DG-87 case. The plan is to replace the case's stock white LED strip with an addressable and do the same for my EKWB RGB Res. I won't be building til May so stay on their tail about getting both the 14s purchasable in single units as well as LEDs purchasable without the controller. It's not a big deal to have to purchase an extra strip or two but it's wasteful to purchase the entire controller.
  2. Thanks Mike! I'' give them a try
  3. I need an extra Riiing 14 Plus Premium edition for my setup and I cannot seem to find a way to purchase one without spending extra money on unneeded hardware. If I was using the 12's this wouldn't be a problem since those are offered in single format but that's not the case with the 14s. I'm having a similar problem with the Pacific Lumi as it's marketed with: but I can't find a way to purchase the LED strips without also purchasing an additional, unneeded controller. I really want to go with Tt for my build but if I can't do it without purchasing excess hardware I'll have to choose another source.
  4. I'm using Riing fans in my spare parts HTPC(yes it's overkill) and here are it's specs: Xeon x5680@4.8ghz-1.45vcore EVGA X58 FTW3 24GB Corsair Dominator GT DDR3@1600Mhz 2x EVGA 980 SSC Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium w/ PAX Drivers Corsair AXi860 Corsair Commander Mini (for LED strips and 4 non Riing Fan control) Corsair HAF XB Case Corsair H115i 4x Riing 14, 1x Riing 12 w/ Controller The Riing Software has worked flawlessly for the last 6 months running on Windows 7. However now that I've changed to Windows 10 the software no longer works and I get the x0001 black box error. Device manager shows a Generic USB hub failing to start and unplugging the Riiing Controller makes the hub disappear. That Win10 install was clean so I went back, installed Win 7, verified Riing software was functioning(and verified the hub failing to start wasn't present) and upgraded to Win10 rather than clean installed to see if the functionality would carry over. It didn't. I also tried unplugging the Commander mini to see if that was some how interfering with the Riing Controller inside Windows. It didn't help and the generic USB hub would remain. I've since reinstalled back to clean Win10 but I just can't figure out why it and only it is seeing the Riing Controller as a Generic USB hub and failing to start.
