    Well, ive been having this issue with 1.7v where it wont load the profiles correctly, mainly on startup or waking from sleep. lt will randomly leave one fan on, or on the wrong speed/colour, even if that fan isnt meant to be running at all haha. So I decided to give your new software a go but i couldnt get the code to work properly, doesnt help i have zero idea on how to code.
    I do hope maybe one day you might make a GUI for your new software once youre happy with how it all works under the hood.

    It shouldn't randomly break like that, maybe there is something else causing that.

    If you want you can create an issue on github here and I'll try to help you get the new version working.

    The new version wont get a ui like the old one with live updates, I would only do a configuration generator so you dont have to manually write it.

    im sorry but can someone please tell me how to run this?


    i can get it installed but nothing, wont launch, times out? 

    You can create an issue on github, I'll help you set it up how you want it.

    the website get hub is lacking in any kind of directions on install and set up.

    I mean, I know it is not the best and it needs some work but I think it should be enough to install and at least test that it detects your controllers. You can always create an issue.

  3. I dont think you can buy that controller separately, it is always included with the Riing fans.

    You should have bought this package:


    But I guess you got it without the controller:



    So dont know how you should get one now, probably write to thermaltake if you can buy one separately, maybe there is one ebay, or you could just buy some more fans that come with the controller.

  4. This controller you posted does not connect to usb ports so it cant be controlled by software. You can only connect it the the motherboards rgb header to sync lighting with other compatible devices. And if it has a fan header cable that you connect to the motherboard then you should be able to configure the speed from the bios.


    It pretty much says all this on the page.

  5. #1 Yes, different controller but same software

    #2 Because the software is ####

    #4 You cant. / No, there is a pwm curve build into the software you cant change.

    #5 If you know the pinout I guess it should be possible.

    #6 Knowing thermaltake the first detected sensor from your cpu (so probably core 1)


    For more customization check this.

    What about AOL email? is this a bot or an attempt to press a link and someone gets in trouble?

    Its a bot that auto generates posts based on the thread content I think, and then appends some ads. There is a lot of them in the forums.

    Does the github version require me to redo the settings with each restart? 

    Yes, it is more designed as configure once and forget type thing.

    But it is not that cumbersome to do, basically you go to "Manage Service" menu, there you can keep easily restarting the service each time you edit the config.

    I have a low priority todo item that would add live reload of the config but I dont think it is worth the effort.

    What i was referring to is, the physical connection of the RPM part of the fans should always be to the motherboard. They can still be controlled through software or assigned to different temp sources/sensors (at least with ASUS).

    That means asus has built in the controller into their motherboards, pretty cool. 99% of motherboards have a simple pwm controller that just reads cpu temperature and thats it. So having a separate box like thermaltake does means you can support more systems and dont have to worry about compatibility.

    But if your software fails (and under WINDOWS it will sooner or later)

    Dont know about their official software but I wrote my own and it never failed once.

    You kinda confirmed that their software is bad, because windows does not cause the software to fail on its own.

    Do we have a WINDOWS fan here? 

    Not a fan of any os, each has their place.

  9. Quote

    As soon as WINDOWS puts your machine to sleep or hibernation, every of these software controls will fail after waking up.

    Not true, the controllers work just fine after resuming from sleep, they didnt add support for that in their software so there is no way for it to work.


    I don't know, why manufacturers even offer the possibility controlling RPM!

    Because it allows you to customize the fans even more? What if you want your front fans to respond to the temperature of the gpu instead of the cpu? What if you want to quickly switch profiles from gaming to quiet. There is a lot you can do when you can fully control everything.

    You have separate loop for cpu and gpus, currently if you would render something using 100% of gpu and 0% of cpu your fans would not spin faster and they would reach high temperatures. Similarly if you are using 100% cpu and 0% gpu you have 8 fans that are making noise unnecessarily.

    I would rather suggest adding one pwm input like in the sync controller that would act as a fallback that would control the fans if there is no software controlling it present.


    And yes, the software is ####. Its not windows.

    Can the GitHub version keep the settings even after restart in a sense that it won't return to the controller default?

    Well, there is the same concept of boot/shutdown profiles in the github version, so you use the boot profile to change the defaults of the controller.

    1 hour ago, Vinasis said:

    I am not good actually with what I saw on github as I want to have 2 profiles for my 12 fans inside the case...8 will follow 1 profile and the other 4 will follow another.

    You can have as many profiles as you want, but yeah the github version is more complex to setup. The documentation is still WIP and can be quite hard if you dont know what to do.

    You can create an issue here and I can help you setup the github version if you want, but the 1.7 should work just fine if you need simple profiles.

    Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions, if i may ask for some reason when I restart my pc the fans would get mixed settings, rgb lights go back to default and those that I set to zero start to spin and random stuff, I uninstalled the official software btw.

    The controller will use its default settings when there is no software controlling it. You can create a new profile and set its type to Boot and when you save it the controllers defaults will be set to those settings.

    But I think I made it so you cant stop the fans, you are forced to use manual speed so 20-100%.

    You can also set a Shutdown profile so when you are shutting down the system the fans will be set to a specific speed/rgb.

    To confirm before trying to use the version 1.7 I went to the task manager and turned off the official software from there, or do i need to uninstall the official thermaltake software?

    You just need to make sure its not running, remember to also disable autostart.

    That is unfortunate to hear the GitHub one wont be getting a GUI. I will grab the old one then and give that one a shot. if anything I can try practice using the newer as well. Will let you know how it goes with the old one though.

    It might some day but its a lot of work for something you use only once on first setup and never again. The github version is made so it is heavily and easily extensible with custom effects/speed controllers/triggers/new devices, this makes it hard to design a gui.

    Also with right triggers you can make it very dynamic, like for example switch profiles when a program is launched, or program a custom discord trigger that changes rgb when you get a new message etc.

    but I noticed something else, 4 ports each one with a single fan all of them read the same temperature but the fan speed percentage is different? like one of them would go at 70% and another goes at 50% and another goes 66% although they're on the same profile, might there be something wrong that I am doing?

    You probably had the official software running and something broke.

    BTW Thanks a lot of your great work, hope you would continue with the gui version it makes people lives easier, unlike the crappy thermaltake support which does not exist "they're making sure their publicity gets ruined everyday".

    The gui version would need a complete rewrite for it to be further developed since it is written in a very limiting way, this is because I had less knowledge about the inner workings of TT controllers. So it is unlikely I will work on this version again, maybe someday I will add a gui for the github version.

    If you ever decide to go on with the gui version I guess everyone would hope for more rgb options <3

    The only supported effects in gui version are those builtin the controller, so I cant add more unless I rewrite 90% of the app.

    But you can write custom effects in the github version, if you have any in mind I could add those.

    Hello, first of all thank you for making this program. I have been looking for an alternative to the tt software. I found out about this alternative and have been trying to get it to work. I have followed the instructions but for some reason the GUI that I see in other users posts does not appear. i only have the command style window with number commands that turns up. Am I missing something?

    I think you downloaded the version from github. It does not have gui right now, and probably never will due to the highly increased complexity compared to the old version.

    The old version is attached to the first post and it still works, but its much simpler and has some limitations (always assumes 12 leds and only uses built in effects)

    Oh. the "All values to black" just turned half the loop "Off" and the other half remained on.
    It didn't exactly remedy that specific issue from earlier.

    Interesting, then my only suggestion is to try the github version because you can set how much leds each device has.

    For the software to not need elevation they would have to disable it from monitoring your CPU temperature and you would also not be able to use the game, party, and movie lighting effects. I'm sure a lot of people would like that as an option, but that would require more features for them to produce. Which we have seen is a long, slow, and painful process for them.

    Or they could make it a service so you would only need to elevate once to install the service. It even makes the fans work before you login.

    But no one seems to make software that way, I guess the money is in the hardware not in software.



    You can try this if you want.
