  1. Looks like the included fans uses the same 9 pin USB 2.0 header as the 5 port controller that comes with their other addressable RGB products. As long as you purchase at least one fan + controller package (200mm fans can be purchased with and without a controller), you should be able to hook up both your 200mm and the included three 140mm Riing Plus RGB fans to the same controller and control them together.
  2. They're listed on their site for $59.99, but are not able to be added to cart yet. I'm a little sad they went with 9 LEDs each strip instead of 12, as all of my Riing Plus fans are 12 LEDs.
  3. I was originally confused when you said it came with 200mm pure plus fans, as I couldn't recall them ever being released. I agree that it is very annoying for them to pull such a maneuver. Having to manufacture a new connector and controller and keep stock of all of that couldn't be saving them any money versus reusing what they already have and including the 5 port controller with the case. If in fact there is no way for the case ones to work with the stand alone purchased ones, they should have that listed somewhere in the case description. Did you get on the phone with them?
  4. I'm looking at that case more, and it appears the included fans don't have the standard 9 pin USB 2.0 cable that comes when one buys the fans separately. If you haven't already, try getting on the phone with ThermaltakeUSA to see they can figure out a way to get all your equipment working together. You could also try contacting @ThermalMike on here for some help.
  5. Looks like the built in controller is designed to work on its own and not hook up with any additional controllers.There are a couple of other solutions. If you prefer to use your motherboard's software to control the lighting, you could get Thermaltake's TT Sync Controller. This is a 9 port controller that plugs into a motherboard's RGB header. I believe this requires you to run PWM cables between the controller and the motherboard, as the BIOS settings will then control the speed of the fans. Alternatively, each pack of fans you purchase will also include a 5 port controller that plugs into a USB 2.0 header on your motherboard and allows lighting and fan speed control via Thermaltake's software. One can chain up to 16 of these controllers together.
  6. The Riing Plus and later released fans (pure plus and riing trio) can be used on it. I believe any of their products with the 9 pin USB 2.0 style header work on there.
  7. Unfortunately, there is no officially supported way to daisy chain the 9 port TT Sync Controller. However, you may find this thread of some use. Someone figured out how to use two of the controllers together: If you would like to use Thermaltake's software, it supports daisy chaining up to 16 of their 5 port controllers.
  8. On their update notes for version 1.2.5 of their RGB software they listed adding support for the RAM covers. So I anticipate we will see them within a month.
  9. Have you checked that your antivirus is not blocking it?
  10. You can daisy chain up to 16 of Thermaltake's controllers. So you will be able to control the floe Riing 360 RGB and both sets of the Pure Plus fans via Thermaltake's software. The controllers come with the daisy chain cables. They also come with a USB 2.0 header to two micro USB ends. You can hook two controllers up with one of those and then daisy chain the third one off another controller, or use another USB 2.0 header to micro USB. I would make sure to connect the Pure Plus fans to the controllers they come with, as they are a newer product than your liquid cooler and may not be properly supported on its controller. Another option to control 9 devices would be the TT Sync controller. This hub supports 9 devices. However, its purpose is to allow one to control Thermaltake RGB products with the motherboard's software. This also means you will need to run PWM cables between the controller and motherboard for your fans, versus the single 9 pin cable for the Premium RGB controller. You would not be able to use Thermaltake's software, in this use case. Let me know if you need any more assistance.
  11. I believe that newer units now ship with a resistor cable that fixes the cable. I was able to contact support and have the new cables shipped to me at no cost and without having to return the old ones.
  12. As far as I know, the only way to get things to sync on the other controllers is to have all controllers running on profile one. Then go to your first controller, setup what you want, and click save. This should sync the effect and color across controllers. Copy color should sync the effect, speed, and color. For the Aurora effect, are you saying that the color is not properly transitioning between fans, or that they are not all the exact same color at the same time? As the intention of the effect is that the color flows from one device to the next, assuming you have the devices are plugged in in an order that matches how they are positioned in your case. If this still does't help, could you upload a video to show what you're experiencing?
  13. Are you controlling them via Thermaltake's TT RGB Plus software? If so, you need to setup Fan 1 how you want, then set the other fans to "Copy Color" light mode and they will follow Fan 1s settings.
  14. Check the install location of the app to see if the executable is still there. Being the software needs access to a lot of your system information it can get blocked/quarantined/deleted by antivirus software. I had to do some manual white listing for mine to stop deleting it.
  15. Earlier this year it was announced that Q4 of this year was the target for Razer Chroma devices to work with Thermaltake's software. Is there a more specific time frame, now that we are in Q4?
  16. I've had thoughts about how to allow users to make custom speeds and effects. I know in another thread, Thermalmike stated that they speeds were all hard coded. I'm guessing they manually design the time delay between transitions and what a transition looks like. Being my background in programming is mostly OOP with Java and C++, I've wondered if one could simply have each lighting mode be an object and then each of those have their own function titled "transition". This should allow some sort of custom speed adjuster that would then call the mode's "transition" at the rate the user sets. This structure could also allow users to define their own transitions/lighting modes as well.
  17. @Teszty66 Can't believe I didn't think to double click on the fan curve grid. I'll have to play with it again. The issue I saw with flow mode I had also experienced with previous version of Thermaltake's software as well, but I have't seen it in a few revisions so maybe their software puts in a delay to keep them in check.
  18. I finally got around to trying the software. I like the fan curve implementation, and I really like that one can select which devices go to which profile. I always thought it would be neat to assign different speeds/colors to different groups of fans and lights. Both of these things are improvements I would like to see Thermaltake implement. Especially the fan curve. A fan curve seems like a basic requirement for any fan controlling software. While the software has a very primitive layout, it is very functional and to the point. It would be nice to be able to add and remove fan curve points. I ran into an issue when running the fans on "Flow" mode. The five fans on my first controller fall behind the fan and LED strips on my second controller. Also, not sure how the controllers get ordered in the software, but my second controller appears above my first one in the list. Would be good to make them appear in order, if possible. Finally, I am able to select ports that have nothing plugged in. I do know that thermaltake's software only flags an issue with empty ports until the user turns them off, so it just may be a limitation of the controllers to not be able to tell the software to disable the ports when empty. Great project so far. I'll be excited to see what you do next with it.
  19. I may have found the alleged file. The following path has a password property, but for me it is set to all 0s. I'm guessing this is because I am not signed into the software. C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Tt\RGBRiingPlus\Device.ini
  20. My apologies, but I have not had the opportunity to try it yet. I should be able to this weekend. I will let you know how it goes.
  21. It may be tedious, but I would uninstall all versions of C++ that exist in your add/remove programs menu, as it "failing" to install when installing the RGB software may have caused an issue. Then I would start with version 1.1.6 and let it install C++ as well. If that works, Then attempt installing version 1.2.2, but when it asks to install C++ say no.
  22. Yes, there should be default lighting settings without the software running. Unfortunately I am unable to help you with that. I believe there are a few other threads asking about the same error code as you. Hopefully you can find some information in those.
  23. The only thing I could think to check is that the dip switches on the controllers are not set to the same number.
  24. I'm afraid I have no suggestions for the controller issue, but there is a TT Sync controller that has 9 ports. This would allow you to hook all your devices into one hub. However, you would be using your motherboard's RGB software to control the lights instead of Thermaltake's.
  25. Are you speaking specifically of Thermaltake's Pacific Lumi Plus strips? Per what I've read about them on here, the controller that ships with the Lumi Plus strips is slightly updated to allow one to daisy chain multiple strips together (they can plug in to one another) and have the effect continue throughout all the connected strips from a single port. It was mentioned that the Lumi Plus strips can be plugged into the Riing Plus controller, but users will not be able to daisy chain them.
