  1. Good Time of the day everyone! I would like to share my own experience of connecting Riing RGB fans together in 1 controller. This guide will divide in two parts: One of them is how to connect 4 fans in 1 controller, using only your hands and pin extractor (or any thin tools like needle). Second part will be about connecting up to 6 fans using same tools as in first case plus 4-pin Molex cable and electric tape (or shrinking tube or soldering iron + tape). A little Preface: Why I decided to divide in two parts? The answer is very simple. MB in most cases provides 12V @1Amp. Usually it will run up to 3 fans at max speed without any drawback (loosing RPM). However in some cases you can connect 4-th and you won't notice any difference. Firstly, (too obvious) power off your PC. (Don't forget that you are doing at your own risk, this is not official Thermaltake guide) We need tool to extract pins from the head. You can use basically anything thin enough to fit a little hole on top of the head. I used this tool: The idea is very simple, we need to extract pins from one head and insert them into another head, so there will be two fans goes into 1 4-pin head. There is enough room to fit 2 wires in 1 head slot. See little holes? Press on them and pull wires. Very simple. Do you see that there is enough space in the socket? We need to insert each extracted wire into proper slot. It would go snug and fit secure. At the end we will get this: Done! Just plug it back to controller and you are good to go! Video to demonstrate: Second part! Connecting up to 6 fans. We have to follow same process as before, BUT the big difference is that we need 4-pin molex cable. How it works: 4-pin PWM MB port has 4 pins (oh man, thanks Cap. Obvious!) You can see pinout below: We will utilize power from Molex cable (it's peripheral cable goes directly in PSU) and PWM signal from Motherboard. From the power cable, which goes with fans, you need to extract only two pins +12V and GND .Other 2 leave in the head. Extracted pins you need to connect to molex +12V and GND correspondingly. Here is pinout: Just in case: MOLEX has 2 grounds and it doesn't matter which to connect. What we'll get at the end: Just plug PWM to 4-pin MB fan port and Molex ... to molex, lol. No video yet, but it works If you'll have questions, don't hesitate to ask. Maybe I just forgot to mention something... Cheers!
  2. ASRock Z97 Extreme 4/Intel 4790k/nVidia GTX970/Crucial Ballistix 16GB DDR1866/USB2.0 header on motherboard. I can't get the v2.1.5 software for Riing Premium fans to load the brightness on boot or loading a profile. The sliders in the software work just fine and the actual file in my user Roaming/AppData/Tt/RGBRiing/Riing/ directory shows the application stored the set value (ex. 0.49) but it treats anything less than 1 as off... so they store it as a float, but load it as an integer? It loads the color and fan modes just fine, but it can't read a value for 'Bright' as anything other than 1 for 100% or rounded down to 0 which is off, even 0.99 = off. When I boot my PC, when I click the Save button, when I click my saved profile, I have to go move the slider from hard left (on, 1) or hard right (off, 0) back to where I want it. Sigh... anyone have any ideas am I missing something? I really want to love these fans, they look beautiful, perform well as a fan... but with no control of the fan curve, no inability to tie to any other system attribute than instantaneous CPU temperature (causing them to surge all the time), no ability to save brightness, no hint of future update timelines for bug fixes or feature enhancements (like fan curve control, etc)... The cheaper 'non-Premium' controllers have a pause feature to get the color I want, the fan PWM is controlled via motherboard bios or Windows utility and would be configurable. The only thing that the 'Premium' fan is getting me is the ability to create profiles and set brightness... but I can't even set brightness the way it is now. I had tried the Riing Plus Premium a while back and returned them because that software had no ability to remember settings or connect to controller after coming out of sleep/hibernation and there had been no response in months to inquiries. Always had to quit the app and start it up again and reload the profile. The programmable 12 LED ring was cool, but aesthetically, the white plastic ring < clear plexi ring. There was no interpolation for color changes either, which made it impossible to get a slower smooth looking transition. I just saw in another thread that there was now a Premium Plus v1.1.1, up from the v1.1.0 version I used a month or so ago, but the sleep/hibernate issue was reported to still be an issue (this is a huge deal when the fans are on a heat sink or radiator and have no PWM control because the software is hung). Thermaltake, you're so close to having perfect products! Fix your software! Please?!
  3. Moved to Case Fans...
  4. I would like to suggest a new function for the RIING PLUS RGB program. Why not create a custom area for the THERMAL function? I would like the THERMAL function to be customizable (animations, temperature limits, colors and brightness). or That each LEDS animation function could use the THERMAL function
  5. Multiple versions, plus, premium, premium plus... all on different websites and microsites. No access to previous versions available. The naming is confusing. Dependencies are not properly installed with the application - such as the uicomm.dll error, which I think is fixed by installing the C++ runtime library. Why not just have ONE application Thermaltake? Its not hard. Why not just have one that WORKS too? That might be a start - dont tell me its hard, guess what I do for a living. This is -####- hour here... you need to fix this. Its been what, over a year now? I am annoyed that I bought these fans. I am annoyed that they now sit there at slow speed idling away not responding to PWM and being ineffective. I am getting the feeling though that this is a classic thermaltake "ignore it and it will go away" situation. But if that is the case, this will be the very last time I touch your products.
  6. I'm planning to build a gaming PC with fully synced RGB lighting and I'm capable of assembling a custom fan controller which I'll use to control TT Riing fans' color programmatically. The only question is, what will I violate (if I do) by doing so? I mean, is the protocol actually proprietary and I'm not allowed to reverse engineer it and build custom controllers, or is it simply 'not-open-source'?
  7. I was wondering which of the Riing fans, TT Premium or the Plus has the better led diffusion. I have the Premiums and while they only have 2 leds per fan the diffusion creates a relatively smooth diffused look around the ring whereas every video I've seen of the Plus the led's seem very visible and defined, very dotty. I much prefer a smooth look in my build. Is that just an effect of video recording or is the Plus worse than the Premium at creating a smooth look. Cheers.
  8. Salutations, I have just completed a computer build and I am having a few issues that I assume to be PSU issues. I got a Toughpower DPS G RGB 1250W power supply. I got the TT DPS G PC app, and when I launch it, it says "NO Device Detected." I'm not sure why, but because of that, I cannot monitor my PSU or access the features. Is there any solution to this? Additionally, my computer will often restart out of the blue when doing things that it should have no issue doing, like playing a game or surfing the internet. I assume this to be a PSU issue as well. All of my drivers are up to date, and overheating is not an issue, because I consistently monitor temps. I have a GTX 1080 that has 3 fans on it and stays very cool. I also have an I7 6800k that is liquid cooled. I used the TT Pacific RL 360 liquid cooling kit, which brings me to my next issue. The RGB Riing fans are not recognized by the "Riing RGB Radiator Fan" application. It does not show a warning, it displays the temperature but does not let me change the color or any other aspects. It is version 1.0.2, please help. I have the fans plugged into the included fan controller which is plugged directly into the "Pump Fan" header on my MSI x99a gaming pro. I have tried all of the headers including "CPU fan" and "System fan." The fans spin fine no matter what I plug it into, but the program never works. Please help me with my issues. Thank you for your help, Jujuberr
  9. Recently, Thermaltake announced their new Thermaltake Riing 12 LED RGB Radiator Fan TT Premium edition with a new digital fan controller and RGB software at Computex. I am curious as to if these new fans and the new controller/software are compatible with the 1st gen Riing 12/14 RGB LED fans? For more info on these new fans see:
  10. So I built a case and installed three Thermaltake Riing Plus 14 RGB fans (16.8m colors and 140mm). I found that the back of my NZXT S340 case does not support a 140mm fan, but only a 120mm fan. I'd like to add another 120mm fan to the case and add it to the Riing Plus RGB software to control it as with the other 3... but I can't seem to confidently identify which 120mm fan would match the existing Riing Plus RGB 14 setup. I did buy a single Riing 12, but it seems to be a different beast altogether... only 256 colors (as opposed to 16.8m) and can't be directly connected to the already installed Riing Plus RGB 14 controller... nor can the controller that came with the Riing 12 be daisy-chained to it. Which 120mm fan would be compatible with this Riing Plus RGB 14 setup/controller? And where can I buy it, as Amazon doesn't seem to sell just one (only a 3 and 5 pack)... ? Oddly, Newegg seems to have one, but is $104... as opposed to a three pack which is only $98. ####? Thanks, Dave
  11. Basically the setup I have is 4 x 120mm riing fans and 2 controllers. Each controller has 2 riing fans plugged into it. The controllers are then plugged into 2 separate 4-pin chassis fan connectors on the motherboard (Asus Gene VIII). I boot up and set the fans to a specific colour via the controllers, but next time I boot ,the LED's don't turn on. I have to manually go and set them again. I have made sure all my connections are OK, tried a CMOS reset, updated the BIOS, uninstalled all of the bundled Asus software, yet it still won't behave as expected. So I'm not sure if its an issue with the MB, or my fan controllers?
  12. Hello, As a title I would like the software to open in the background (only on the taskbar) when start windows. This software is needed to manage the fans speed but I find invasive the window at every boot. Does anyone know how to do it? Thanks.
  13. I have 2 packs of the Riing Plus. And the software has fixed issues magically. Had them a week and was disappointed as only one pack showed up in software. Before : 1 pack was always Rainbow, and other pack I could adjust color and speed. Now : Both packs appear in the Riing software and I can control them as I like. Thanks for the fix Thermaltake. I'm posting this to let others know they might have problems fixed if they update the software. Now if there is some way to chain them such that all run at exact same color and speed.
  14. Hello, is there a 5 pin extension cable for these fans?? I can't reach the area where I would like to place the controller so I would appreciate a link to an extension cable. It seems that the 5 pin design is proprietary and so it isn't easy to find an extension like this.
  15. Thermaltake this is to you, and I am sure I am not alone in this ask. Please make the software for your fan controllers have a fan curve. I am tired of my PC spooling up and sounding like its going to fly off my desk when my PC briefly hits 60 degrees. I know that there are options to adjust the fan speed in conjunction with the PWM setting but, I don't want to have to create 3 different profiles just for cooling scenarios. I feel that you got so caught up on the RGB portion of the fan you forgot what its main function cool my PC components. I feel that the profiles should be for RGB elements of the fans but there should be separate menu to have the fan curve adjustments with a few presets thrown in the mix (ie. normal, silent, performance, and custom) custom should allow for at least 5 points of adjustment on a simple linear graph chart each point should reflect CPU temp to fan speed and for those of us (me included) have a separate linear graph chart for GPU temps as well. I know it sounds like I am asking a lot but since you have taken the MOBO WPM connections out of the picture fine tuning a cooling preset has become lacking. If you really feel like being over achievers (and I know you do) allow us to put fans into zones 3 is fine more is better but this will allow us to make only the fans that need to spool up while the others remain quiet. A perfect example for this would be if you had a dual or triple radiator setup (I have a dual). Most enthusiast PC builds (don't kid yourself if you paid $100 for 3 fans you are an enthusiast) like mine will have a radiator for their GPU and one for their CPU, so the zones would allow the fans to spool up only on the associated radiator to the component that needs the cooling. This would also help those that have AIO coolers, and standard heat sinks. So I am asking you Thermaltake to please make a change on how you customize these fans and make your software more intuitive. You are asking a premium price for these fans but are not delivering to the premium PC owners. I also ask you, the community to chime in and add anything I missed or just agree so Thermaltake knows that these features are what we want.
  16. Hey There Everyone, I'm writing because I had the riing 120's and just picked up the 3 pack of 140's. I've got two 120's in the front and now have a 140 at the back and two 140's on my radiator. I have a total of 5 fans and have them all plugged into one RIING controller. When I open the RIING software it only has controls for three fans. How do I access controls for the last two fans? Many thanks in advance Burk
  17. I lost my Riing rgb controller 4pin power cable, can anyone tell where to buy a replacement?
  18. Hello, I recently purchased the Riing 14 Premium edition fans for my new build but it is not working as per expectations. After installing all the drivers and the software from the website, the software does not detect the 3 fans. Here are the things that i have tried. I've connected the fans into different headers from the controller. I've connected the fan controller into all of the 9 pin USB2 on my motherboard. I've connected different Molex cables into the fan controller. I've used different points of my power supply. I've used both of the USB ports from the controller cables. I've tried all the controller number settings i could from the back of the controller. I've tried using a different machines. I've tried downloading different versions of the software. The older version will have 3 fans displaying at 0 RPMs and i'm not able to control the fans still. And still i cannot get the software to detect the fans. I think i am not the only one with this issue. I need advice on this. Please help. The main star of this build were the fans My build as such. Asus Z170-A Motherboard. Intel i7-6700K Superflower 750W Modular Gold. *I think these are the parts I need to list for the "debugging". **All parts purchased on 23rd December 2016. ***Thermaltake fans ordered online on 12th December 2016. ****Thermaltake fans arrived on 22nd December 2016. *****Location: Singapore
  19. Hi All, I've been thinking of picking up some RGB fans for my watercooling setup. Before I buy something, I always do my homework. Previously, I was thinking of getting NZXT AER RGB's, They are also about 30$ a pop, but their RGB light ring would be facing the rad(and defeat the purpose of RGB) if I did push-pull. I happened on TT's Riing line, but their product line is confusing and all over the place. So I dove in and tried to make sense of the situation. Please feel free to correct me if I have any details incorrect. Here is a summary of my findings so far. There are three lines of RGB fans: Riing RGB(12cm/14cm), Ring Premium RGB (12cm/14cm) and Ring Plus Premium RGB (12cm only). All are advertised as high static pressure and suitable for radiator use. The software for the Riing Premium and Riing Plus seems to suck pretty badly compared to other vendors. Note: Do not beleive Tt's pictures of the Riing RGB and Riing Premium RGB fan pictures. These fans CANNOT show more than one color on a fan at one time!! This feature is only available on the Riing Plus. macst34 Riing RGB: - Central Light guide which shows leds from both sides of the fan (as opposed to AER) - Individual Leds are NOT addressable, so one fan can only show one color for all LEDs at one time. - fans use proprietary 5 pin connector to hub - Simple 3 button controller hub (3 fans per hub) ; can daisy chain controller hubs. Riing RGB premium - Central Light guide - Individual Leds are NOT addressable, so one fan can only show one color for all LEDs at one time. - fans use proprietary 5 pin connector to hub; Fan motor seems to be the same as Ring RGB fans - USB controller hub / no buttons software control only (3 fans per hub) ; can daisy chain controller hubs. - uses "Ring RGB Tt Premium Edition" software, current version 2.1.2 - *seems the software hub and fan fin profile are the major differences compared to the Riing RGB line. Riing Plus RGB premium - Central Light guide - Individual Leds are addressable, the fan can show different colors LEDs at same time on a single fan. - proprietary 9 pin connector to hub - USB controller (different from Riing RGB premium) - uses "Ring Plus RGB Tt Premium Edition" software, current version 1.0.2 - no 14cm size.

  20. Dear forum, it is my first entry here, so please dont blame me for any mistakes i make So, first of all, i own an NZXT S340 and i am planning to use the riing RGB fans as an intake. I am looking at buyng the 3-pack, because then i could mount two as an intake and i would have one spare fan left. So, if i want to put it on my CPU-heatsink, i would have to connect it to the splitter that is included, but then i couldnt control my CPU-fan individually, but if i connected it to the MB, i could change the speed without a problem, but how would the lighting react? Would there even be any light? I really dont wanna buy 3 individual fans / 3 pack +1 fan because it would be 20€ more expensive just to have one more small controller... Thanks for any help! Have a nice day ~ CheeZe
  21. I recently bought some 140mm RGB Riding fans for a new system I'm building. All's quiet save for one that makes a loud clicking noise while it's running. It still runs fine but the clicking can grate at the nerves. Is there anything that I can do to remedy this issue? I will follow this up with a link to a video of the sound one I get back home. On a side not is there something I'm missing with the controller for the fans? I shut the machine down and the color settings I have set aren't saving. Any suggestions? EDIT: Here's a link to a video of the fan: Thanks! -Jason
  22. i recently got these fans. the software is a joke. it doesnt even have a "open minimized/hidden button". you guys really screwed us over with the "premium" fans. when bought them i was under the impression they were the same as the "dumb" rgb fans, as in the controller had the buttons and it can plug directly to a pwm port. but instead i get a really dumbed down hardware controller that connects to the motherboard via usb2 header. this means that in a few years these fans will be useless when there arent any usb2 headers on motherboards any more and i wont be able to use it "normally". there is no reason any more for the controller to do ANYTHING other than pass the correct settings from the api to the correct fan. some suggestions: make an api for the fans. something like: (and please let it be able to be done from cmd prompt etc, added bonus will be cross system compatibility not just windows if the api and software front end are coded in a universal language) ttprem -color <red>,<green>,<blue> -brightness <brightness 0-100> -speed <set speed number 1 -100> ttprem -color cycle -brightness 100 -speed pwm ttprem <controller number>:<fan number> -color cycle ttprem 1:1,2,3 2:2,3 -color cycle (controller 1 all 3 fans, controller 2 only fans 2 and 3) ttprem.exe -color <r,g,b> -brightness <0-100> -speed <0-100> -duration <seconds> (added duration, how long it must take from last settings to new settings) this could allow for some pretty neet setups. everything from rainmeter events to bat files to the fans being able to be changed based on other "measures" the software you ship with purely interacts with the api. all the fans need to be shown. no needing to jump between controllers. the software must handle it all seamlessly. define groups of fans. can be a mix and match from different controllers. a fan can be a part of more than 1 group. settings can be applied to individual groups. no limit on how many groups you want allow the pwm feature to listen to other measures like GPU / hard drive / case temp with custom sliders. when "measure value = 50" then "fan speed = 60%" etc (custom curve). you guys use HWinfo in anycase. should be easy to program (imagine having a fan blink like a hard drive notification light, or fans changing colour based on an open app). i'll add more if i think about them
  23. Hello everyone, I've just finished my latest project of fixing the old Thermaltake Riing RGB Fans, because I was quite unsatisfied with them out of the box, not remembering the color settings. So I have decided to create an software controlled solution for them using basic components, which were quite cheap. If you want to see how it looks, check out this Video, where I have started and stopped the controlling software, loading the settings from the config file: YouTube Video Note: I am not responsible for breaking any of your parts if you try to rebuild this neither for guranteeing its going to work. This is a quite uncomplete Guide at the Moment and will get expanded if there is an demand. To fix that I've got an GPIO Breakout by Adafruit for USB and attached the Riing RGB Controllers to it using the Extension Port using these JST Cables from Ebay. I was pretty quick at reverse engineering their protocol, which isn't more than applying voltage to trigger a button press, in the case the state LOW on the GPIOs. If you get the exact same cables, then the wiring is the following: White Wire - Mode Switch Red Wire - Start/Stop Switch Black Wire - Speed Switch Hooking them up to the GPIO Breakout is quite easy, but the C3 pin didnt work well for me on my 4th Controller, as it seemed to be LOW from the start. On the software side I have used the python libraries by Adafruit for making an simple wrapper for triggering the buttons by pin id. I have coded an NodeJS Service for controlling the Colors after that, which is quite basic at the moment and doesn't features an user interface yet. The settings are stored in a config file and loaded on boot and stored on shutdown/reboot. If you are interested in obtaining the software, feel free to drop me an PM and I will give you instructions on how to install it. spyfly
  24. Hello Everyone New to the Forums! Been Building systems for 19 years now and I Decided to build A Thermaltake Build My Myself and My Computer Repair Shop. I was so excited to get started forgot to take pictures in the very beginning . Couldn't decide on one standard color so decided to take advantage of RGB options. So that's what I did. But Stuck With Red Meets Blue concept (AMD + Intel). Cpu type - Intel Core i7 4790K Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-z97MX Gaming 5 System Ram - 16 GB 2x8 DDR3 Corsair Vengeance 2400MHz Video (GPU) - Asus Matrix-R9280X-P-3GD5 Drive #1 - Samsung SSD 840 Pro (240GB) Drive #2 - Samsung SSD 850 Evo (500GB) Drive #3 - WD Black 2TB Cooler - Thermaltake Water 3.0 Riing RGB 360 Fans - Riing Triple 120mm RGB LED Fan kit/Fan Controller x2 Rear Fan - Corsair ML140 Pro LED Magnetic Levitation Fan Front Fans - Bitfenix Spectre Pro LED 140mm x2 Power Supply - Thermaltake Tough Power 850w Gold Still Waiting on Y-Connector Cables for the Fan controllers! Wants to thank Donny on Tech Support for Thermaltake for answering my questions I had during my Build! Great jobs and Thank you! Ok now for the pics! I Plan on doing full Liquid Cooling on this case but I'll do next year! Ok I don't know why my pics are all upside down and not right but hopefully this can be fixed?
  25. I have RGB fittings (with a controller) and 3 Riing Fans (same controller?). Can I plug all devices into one controller and have them work in sync? The controllers look the same? While the controllers only have 5 pwm ports, the RGB fittings can be daisy chained together, so I can get everything plugged in. Is there a limit to the number of fittings that can be plugged into one of the controller ports? Thanks, Ernest
