  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: https://youtu.be/jn-x7rH3Pwg 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. 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: http://computex2016.thermaltake.com/news_view_th_531_3.html
  3. problem

    Hello! I've got a problem. After some time my fans stopped working but LED still works. I tried to understand where is problem here, and noticed that fan controller was very hot. Any advices how to turn them on?
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. I tried install and reinstall for like 20 times the software cannot recognize the fans and causes my system to crash. Can I return it and have my money back? I trusted your brand coz i am using your psu and your case. But your fans are fail. So fail. I even download the mobile software and it also fail. I really don't know what to say. I spend 2 days checking my system and everything and realize it's the fans. The fans and the leds are working but I cannot control the speed and the lighting. Might be a faulty control unit or something.
  7. I lost my Riing rgb controller 4pin power cable, can anyone tell where to buy a replacement?

  9. 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: https://youtu.be/M-sygEBK2TU Thanks! -Jason
  10. Hi, i´ve got a little problem with the fan control. I just built up a pc an the control doesnt work properly. The fans are running, but i cant switch the speed (high or low, actually i dont know on which setting they are running now). When i hold either one of the buttons, the fans stop, when i release it, they´ll start again. The LEDs in the buttons are flickering sometimes. Also it seems the "Fan LED" button also has an issue. Sometimes i can change the color 2 or 3 times, then it wont work anymore until i switch the system off and on again. Did i do anything wrong? The case came with 3 fans installed, two of them already connected to the control panel, so i just added the power lines. I dont want to send the case back to the shop, because its a christmas gift and when i ordered it in the first place, i waited almost 3 weeks for delivery. I´d love to get some suggestions, and sorry for probably raping your language, it is not mine
  11. Good Morning. I was searching the Thermaltake Commander FT user's Manual but i didn't find it. So, if you guys can help me with a simple question about the Fan Controller, I will really appreciate it. The Thermaltake Commander FT can control Turn on-off FAN LED? Thank You for the help and sorry for the english! I'm speak Portuguese.
  12. Greetings all! I am new to the custom PC world and during my first venture into the wild PC building word stumbled onto the beautiful RGB Riing fans, and all their glory. Alas, I stumbled into some issues with the Controller, which stopped working after a few hours. To be clear, I have two sets (six fans, two controllers) of RGB fans. Neither controller responds to me pushing the buttons, which is an issue... Anyway, when I boot up my computer, one set of fans Light (yay!) but go to a random color or starts the cycle (little less yay...). The second sets light don't come on at all and don't always start spinning until a quick Reboot of the PC. So... after some non-invasive (I didn't take any of the Riing components apart) tweaking of the fans, I had no luck in fixing it (super sad face), but I did narrow the issue down to the Controller that came with it. So, the question, at last; Will one of the other Thermaltake controllers work with the RGB settings of the Riing fans? I was thinking mayhaps the RGB Commander might work, but couldn't find anything around the internet about it. Anyone have the same issue? Any ideas how to fix it?
  13. Good time of the day everyone! This is my first thread here and I'm new here, so sorry if I posted something duplicate or not. I need your help! Recently I bought 1x 140mm Riing RGB fan and 3x 120mm Riing RGB fans. Both of them came with controllers. I connected one 140mm fan with one controller and three 120mm with second controller. Both of them hooked up with M/B 4pin. After installation I faced an issue that 256 color mode (switching colors) going "not synchronously". In other words, 140mm fan change color a little bit faster than rest three 120mm fans. Is there any way to solve it? I've seen on Tt website cable to connecting controllers together but wasn't able to find it anywhere in stores AND online (USA) Do you know how to solve it? Thanks! BTW, I don't know what happened with picture's orientation ... They were OK...
  14. Hello, I bought Thermaltake Urban T81 PC Full Tower Case. After 2 months the fans stopped to work. I was so afraid that they are died. But when I disconnected them from the fan hub that included on the case and just connect them directly on motherboard they worked fine. I would like to ask you kindly, could you please send me a new fan hub and thank you. If you accept and it will be appreciated I will give you my address.

  16. Hello guys! I got the Thermaltake Commander MS-I as my case. My current fan setup is (all 120mm fans) Front intake: Thermaltake TT1225 Rear exhaust: AeroCool Shark Bottom intake: Corsair AF120 Top exhaust: Corsair AF120 I got an APU build with an AMD A8 - 6600K and a while ago I got a discrete videocard (Radeon R7 265). Since the videocard is a bit large I think it blocks a bit the airflow for the CPU cooler (Zalman CNPS5X Performa), because the temps raised like 5° - 6°. I have an spare 120mm fan I could use. Do you think if I find a way to install it in the front top in the area for the drive bays (since I'm not using optical drives atm), would this help? Also any suggestions to do it? Thanks for your help in advance. This is my current setup, not my actual PC, but just to give you an idea. I can't take pics atm because I'm not home.
  17. I've had a thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme for just under a year, now, and it's been working perfectly for my AMD FX 8350, until I tried to use their included Fan Control software to create a custom speedcurve. I tried to alter the curve slightly so that the fans would go to 100% if my CPU reach 50 because it's designed to reach a maximum of 60 or so degrees. Now the fans will only ever run at maximum speed (2000rpm) or idle at 1000rpm. -I can change their behavior slightly - when I switch to the "extreme" profile in the software, they seem to run at 100% all the time. -If I switch to "manual" (but factory default, so normal), they only run at 100% whenever my CPU reaches 35 C, and then drop back down to 1000rpm. -If I switch to the "silent" profile, the fans stay at idle - presumably until my CPU gets really hot, but I'm unwilling to test that. I've tried restarting my system, resetting my bios, re-installing the software, checking the connections... I did send them a tech support request a few hours ago (at the time I didn't know these forums existed), but I have no way to update them on my slightly new information. Initially I'd had my 8350 overclocked to 4.6GHz (stable for nearly a year), but while trying to fix this issue, I reset the bios, but that didn't help, outside of making a pattern visible. -Here's a screenshot of the problem with the overclock (with notes): http://puu.sh/h7Npx/854d680655.jpg -Here's a screenshot while running at stock voltages (this CPU is under load the entire time in this one): http://puu.sh/h7YU3/9b158b1321.png It's as if the program forgot how to increase the speed gradually, making the fans run at "idle" or "max", and there's a threshold at certain temperatures, though the only one I've been able to observe is the one at 35 C under the normal profile. So basically my computer is usable - if I sacrifice the overclock I've had for months and am willing to deal with the computer alternating between silent and extremely loud ever few seconds. And yes, it's my only computer. Thanks for the help! (Running Windows 7, and open hardware monitor to monitor temps - normally) (Actually, the fans would only jump up to full speed if the CPU ever got to 35C. So I'd only have to deal with the constant alternating when working on a project or playing a game. If I was simply browsing or letting the computer idle, the fans would ramp up less often.)
  18. Hello, I'm planning to buy a new Core v71 case, and want to mod this case. At the begining, I'd like change it's blue led fans, to green. I was very happy to found a new green led version of luna fans on the global site, because they will 100% work with v71's control panel. I also like luna's anti-vibration system, perfomance, quiet working and design. So I waiting for them. Is there any information about their release date? Will tt make 14 and 20 versions of green led luna (there is only 12 version on the site)? And when? Thanks .

  20. Hi, I've bought a Smart650W (exact model is SP-650P SMART 650W W/Active PFC) last july. Since last week, the fan is really loud. I think the fan is always running at full rpm even if my computer is in "standby mode" or when i'm in the BIOS. The computer temperature is good (around 34 C) so I'm not sure why the fan is running so fast and causing all the noise. I've tried cleaning the interior of the casing with satic free compressed air but no luck. I'm thinking that maybe a sensor inside the PSU is defective of maybe the fan is just defective. I live in Canada, so using the RMA will cost me money for the shipping and some customs fees. The total of the shipping costs and customs fees will be around 45$ (estimated by Canada Post). At that price, it's going to be a tough decision to get a refurbished PSU from RMA or just buy a brand new one. Is there any know issues with this model of PSU? Got any tips on what can I try to fix the problem? Thanks.
  21. For some reasons when I installed Windows 8.1 on my system and install the fan control software, the fan profiles that I set no longer have any effect on the speed of the fans. Is there anything that I can do that can fix this issue?
