    Massive RGB Case Design - What are the limits?

    For any others who come across this thread, I needed a solution to handle the excessive amount of RGB LED I wanted to incorporate into ASUS Aura so it could all be controlled simultaneously. The solution that worked for me was to buy: (1) XSPC splitter - Click Here (2) Thermaltake TT Sync's - Click Here Step 1 - Connect the XSPC splitter to the 5v Header (DO NOT CONNECT TO 12V Header) on your MB. Step 2 - Connect the XSPC splitter to SATA power Step 3 - Connect all of your RGB Lighting to the TT Sync's following the instruction manuals for them Step 4 - Connect all of your fan controlls for the TT Sync's Step 5 - Connect both of the TT Sync's 5v Headers to the XSPC Splitter This worked for me with two TT Sync's but I imagine that since the power is coming from SATA, you could potentially connect eight TT Sync's to the splitter. But I am no expert on this so I could be wrong. Thanks to Tack for all of his help steering me the right way on this!

    Massive RGB Case Design - What are the limits?

    Tack, I am happy to report that this latest route worked perfectly. Currently I have (2) TT Sync's controlling (18) connections via the XSPC splitter. So I use the ASUS Aura platform to control all of my RGB LED with the exception of the Thermaltake RGB Fittings. I am still stumped as to how to incorporate those with the Addressable header. Any thoughts? Thanks for all your help on this!!

    Sweet! Ordered that and a 2nd TT Sync. We’ll see what happens.

    Massive RGB Case Design - What are the limits?

    Thanks tack but I'm looking for a far "safer" approach. Last thing I want to do is damage something. How about a PCI card like this? Could I perhaps add a few TT SYNC's to this card? http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Gaming&type_sub=RGB LED Lighting&model=AK-RLD-02

    Would something like this work to add multiple TT SYNC’s directly to the MB? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075FKL6C1/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_qa1WBb5GJPFMD
  7. I've done some searching both on this forum and with Google but cannot seem to pinpoint the answers to my questions. I recently ordered everything for a large custom build with many, many RGB items. Before the build gets started, I want to make sure I have all the controllers, splitters, etc... I need so that I don't have to stop and wait halfway through the build for more gear to arrive. This is the build list and I'm curious how all of the RGB will connect: - Thermaltake Level 20 XT Case - ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme - AMD Threadripper 1920x CPU - Thermaltake Pacific W6 CPU Water Block TR4 (CL-W225-CU00SW-A) - ASUS ROG STRIX 1080 TI 11GB Graphics Card - Thermaltake Pacific V-GTX RGB GPU Water Block (CL-W194-CUS00SW-A) - (2) Thermaltake Pacific Radiator PLUS LED Panel (CL-W220-PL00SW-A) - (2) Thermaltake Pacific RGB LED 6-Pack PETG Fittings (CL-W133-CU00BL-A) - Thermaltake Riing Plus 12 RGB Premium 120mm 5-Pack Fans (CL-W093-AL00BL-A) - Thermaltake Toughpower iRGB Plus 850W Platinum (PS-TPG-0850FPCGxx-S) - (2) Thermaltake Riing Plus 20 RGB Premium 200mm Fans (CL-F069-PL20SW-A) - Thermaltake TT Sync Controller (CL-O015-PL00BL-A) - Thermaltake PR22-D5 Plus Pump/Reservoir (CL-W187-PL00SW-A) - (2) Thermaltake Pacific Lumi Plus Magnetic 3-Pack RGB Strip (CL-O014-PL00SW-A) By my count, there are roughly 31 RGB's to connect. I belive the Zenith Extreme has just one Addressable RGB port. Quesitons: 1) Can I daisy chain TT SYNC's? 2) Can I plug the standard controllers into one of the 9 ports on the TT SYNC? In other words, use the standard controller that comes with let's say the LUMI PLUS by plugging in all the LED strips to that controller and then connect that controller into one of the 9 ports on the TT SYNC. 3) If the answers to the above two questions are "no", what is my solution? Thanks!!!
