Gigabytes RGB Fusion and Riing Plus Fans?

Recommended Posts

So i'm still on my quest of finding a way to sync every possible RGB LED in my case (ASUS GPU, RGB Fittings, reservoir lights, Riing fans) with one software (i know, rather impossible quest because apparently proprietary control is the "best" thing there is...) I considered trying Asus Aura, but it only works with simple RGB headers on thier own hardware.

When i kept looking, i stumbled upon Gigabytes RGB Fusion which lists the new Thermaltake Riing plus premium fans as compatible?

Other than that i can't find any proof of this working... Has anyone ever tried that? I don't own Riing Plus Premium fans right now so i can't test it, but can anyone else confirm if this is working?

I have a set of the very same fans and a gigabyte X299 gaming 7 and I can confirm that it doesn’t work or not yet anyway.

when you open fusion you can’t access anything to do with the Riing fans (its greyed out). I’ve just come on here searching to see if there’s anybody that’s got it working but can’t find a shred of evidence to support it.

Maybe there’s a update from Thermaltake or Gigabyte on its way soon that will make it all kick in but as for now it’s a thumbs down.

Heh! You know, Tt could make things a WHOLE LOT easier by making a controller for the fans that has a RGB in and a PWM in header! Heck they could even sell that thing as an upgrade to the existing fans and people would happily buy it, but noooo we gotta use their "specialised" Software that causes alot of frustration as far as i've seen.

Proprietary anything is the killer of convenience. Too bad manufacturers see "convenience" as having only proprietary stuff... well it's convenient for them, because they earn a whole lot more if they sell stuff that's only compatibel with their own stuff.

I'm so glad for rule enforced standarts, else we'd still have a new charger cable with each new phone, like back in those days.... Now we gotta implement standarts for RGB control. :D

I advise you to not buy a Ryzen platform if you wan't to try this because i have big problems even opening the TT software let alone change the PWM and RGB control. They have big ryzen compatibility issues with there controllers, i don't know how intel platforms are up with that.

I've read about those, apparently it's a problem with the USB header. Some say you should try every USB port (even those on the MB back I/O) and eventually you find one that's compatible and working with the controller. Oh and you dont necessarily have to use the 9 pin USB 2.0 header on your MB for the Riing fans, you can get a simple USB adapter cable with a Micro USB to USB connector and hook it up with one of your back I/O USB ports, you would have to run the cable through the case somehow. I suggest a flat wire cable.

But i'm running an intel i7 5930k (got it way before Ryzen was a thing). If i'm ever going to change my CPU, it's going to be Ryzen, because i dislike how intel is cheating you out of PCIe lanes with the newest i7.... A new i7 of the same price and similar specs as mine only got 28 of the 40 Lanes my CPU got. No way i'm going to support that, but i digress.
