  1. I got with TT not too long ago they sent me 2 more controllers, and so far they working. What I understand they are working on new software, maybe they can assign different controllers to temps sensors for those of us that have 2 loops. Support has been very understanding. That being said there are a few ways to bypass the controller itself and use a custom controller. Youtube has a video that has the proprietary pinout explained.

  2. Anytime the USB is interrupted plugging in, unplugging has caused mine to loose connectivity. TT has replaced a few controllers for me finally the last set has worked. I have a USB for DACs on my motherboard which allows me to add+ .01 volts which has helped stabilize my 3 controllers. I ended up putting all 3 controllers on their own custom made cable to the power supply. So far they work, but GD it's annoying as ####.

  3. Just updated to 1.3.802 and temps are reading correctly on x399 designare and seemed to fix a gui scaling error to boot for me! Dammit TT I was ready to give up on you, throw in the towel, dare I say move to corsair....I don't use the software to monitor temps but it is nice that everything is working properly. Cheers to the poster for the update link I owe you a beer.

  4. Yeah I'm have a threadripper on a x399 gigabyte designere which has a 6 pmw fan headers with 2 dedicated to pumps. All my fan curves are set in the bios with alarms for fan and pump failures. In my opinion asus and gigabyte have superior fan control in their respective bios, for water cooling. My next builds I will not be shelling out 2k for fans from Tt. The amount of headache is just not worth it. 

  5. Looks like 1.3.6 works for you, I think I would roll back to that version and never update it. The X399 boards didn't get the attention they needed compared to the AM4 boards it seems. I have 4 other systems on AM4 with 0 issues with the software. I highly doubt they are going to put in any effort to fix any of the issues, instead they will concentrate on the newer boards.  I personally don't like their software controlling temps. I've had temps reach 80c on the GPU side causing my glued in fittings to crack. Since I have modded a adapter and I have had no issues. Software will always have issues, there's too many boards and and software combinations out there to get everything right. TT...listen to your fan base...make your controllers have a PWM pass thru and stop relying on software to control fan speed, once your fan curve is set you usually won't  mess with it again. You don't need fan controls in the software, have a single PMW fan cable run from motherboard to the controller and have the controller act as a hub that also controls the lighting. Stop trying to be good at everything and be great on a few things.

  6. Parts wasn't expensive less than 30$ total from amazon. If you don't have a crimper it'll be an extra 22$ I already had paracord to sleeve them and white heatshrink to tidy them up. TT needs to learn that they are a company that has a huge modding base, but they have components and software that are pretty much locked up. How hard would if be to have just one software to run ALL TT components.  Toughram (gSkill is much better and works with toughram!), TTrgb plus and TT DPS app. TT please for the love of #### make it so you can control several temps and assign fans to those temps!! Spend less time on voice control (really cool feature but really not needed) more time consolidating software and making it work. I have 4 zones that have different temps on the tower 900 2 rads, front compartment and back compartment. FIX RAZOR SYNC DAMMIT! End of rant lol.

  7. I have a tower 900 with 480 rads on each side, one for Gpus and one for Cpu each on a deep cool 10 fan pwm hub. I basically bought 12 pwm extensions and repinned the ends with Dupont USB male pins with the tach wire jumped to both headers, that way TT software will read the speeds but have no control over them, while the fan hub supplies power. So far its been a few months connected this way with no ill effects. Now if they can get their controllers to load correctly the first time it would be awesome lol. Good thing is TT has the fans control wires color coded, but not the RGB wires. I have mapped those wires as 5v data in data out and ground, I do not know the protocol they use, as I am trying to find out so I can run a 16ft strip around my desk and control it with TT Plus.

  8. Update:

    Weirdest crap happens when you least expect it, So I received 2 new controllers from TT. Same issues lag out cannot, will not work. So I decide to buy a new PS, I had a 850 EvGA pulling 650 ish from the wall. Against my better judgement and considering every #### PS was over priced as ####, amazon had a iRGB 1200w for 260$ I bought the thing. The same day I swapped them out, I get a software update from TT.  Now I had some issues that vanished! So I am like O.K the old PW was shot, put the ol voltage meter on it everything checks out. hmm... something's up but can't figure out what's the problem. Put the old PS back in the system started having problems, Voltages check out.. still pulling 650ish at the wall under load. At this point IDGAD anymore. Put the new PS back in and everything works fine, for once. Now under load with a threadripper , I barely break 500w!  What VooDoo you pulling here TT?!   Oh and BTW fix Chroma sync dammit! (at least now it doesn't lock up on rainbow puke lol)

  9. Made one prototype using a pwm extension cutting the male end off, and crimping new male pins. I made 4 short length wires with new pins male, female with 2 new usb header connectors. Used yellow as my signal wire even though green is the signal wires from the fan. Notice that the signal wire is split from the male connector to the new usb connector and the pwm connector. It's working TT software shows rpms speeds but doesn't control pwm at all now. PWM is now controlled by the motherboard fan curve software and uses the actual temps from the motherboard. Hope it helps, it's alot of work for me (12 fans) but its worth it to me.
