Hi, I'm replacing my old view Core V71 case with a View 71 TG Snow edition and going deep with upgrades to RGB lighting. So far I have installed the Lumi Plus LED strips in my old case just to get used to the TT RGB Plus software and noticed it doesn't appear to have any support for the riing trio fans. Watching the video on the website as well the software looks different. Like I said I'm going all in with the R1 Plus DDR4 lighting, possibly the W4 plus water block and PR22-D5 Plus pump, but before I invest in all of that I need to understand if it's all compatible currently and properly supported. I tried the mobile app which when I first loaded it came up with riing trio as a device, even though I don't have any yet, but that software just seems all over the place. I'm not likely to use the mobile app anyway. So returning to the PC, I need the following questions addressed please so I can confidently go ahead with the rebuild. #1 Are riing trio support in the current tt rgb plus, and how if it isn't listed as an available device option? Is it a different controller and the software detects that and gives different options? #2 Why does the PC start up with all the lights on, then when windows and the TT RGB Plus software loads they all switch off. I have to open the software and reselect a profile every time I boot. #3 Can PWM control be used to turn off the fan rotation? Can temp/rpm curves be set so I can choose how the fans respond to temperatures? #4 How can I buy single Riing trio fans, I will need a 3 pack of 140s for a radiator, but an additional 140 for the case exhaust #5 Can I connect any A-RGB device and control It from the software. I noted on the R4 can be connected either to an A-RGB header or to the controller so if I have another device also using the same A-RGB header cable would it work? This would be really helpful. #6 For temperature control of the PWM fans, what are the available options for the temperature sources? As you can imagine, there is a lot of cost involved in buying 10 fans, a PR22, R1 Plus, W4 plus and the Lumi Plus strips so I would appreciate answers before I spend any more on the build. Thanks
Hi, I've got a whole bunch of TT RGB Plus gear (ring trios, Pacific Lumi LED strips, R1 Plus RAM cover etc) and I want to use an existing water block that has motherboard connection using the digital 3 pin connector. From what I can tell it's a standard (of sorts) for the pin outs that connect to the motherboard and exactly matches the connects I have for my R4 DDR RAM LEDs that connect to the TT RGB Plus controller and can be connected directly to the motherboard as well without the controller. So I have no problems with creating a cable with the correct pinouts, but what I don't know is whether the TT RGB Plus software will detect the non TT devices properly and control their RGBs. It looks like the software only gives configuration options for the TT devices it knows about, and from what I can tell it can only address 12 LEDs (at least that's all I can see on the software options). As the device I'm connecting has 24, will it be compatible and will it work? My motherboard doesn't have any light controller on board, so want to understand if connecting this other water block up is going to work and address all the LEDs or not.
I'm just planning a new case for my system and want to use Riing trio fans (140s and 120s) as well as a PR22-D5 plus in a View 71 snow (as well as LED strips and a W4) but I want to have fine control on the fan speed based on CPU temp. I'm used to using the ASUS motherboard AI-Suite for fan control with my old TT Ring fans, but I can't see what PWM controls there are in the software. So for the Trios, they seem to plug to their controllers and you would appear to be able to select the fan speeds, but can the speeds be set to an automatic speed profile based on case temp, or water temp or cpu temp (and so on). Likewise the PR22-D5 Plus, I can see there appears to be a speed control switch on the pump, but that's not exactly helpful once the case is sealed, so can the pump speed be controlled via PWM or via the TT RGB Plus software, again based on in case/water/cpu temperatures. I want to go for as near silent as possible, but if I play games or do heavy processing have everything ramp up to manage the heat. Any help or advice appreciated.
