TT RGB PLUS Ecosystem Overview (Hardware/Software)

Recommended Posts

Excellent video! Clears up a lot of the confusion I initially had and that was answered on the forums prior. I'm sure this will help a lot of people new to the software and products.

 

Will the software eventually allow for more customization? For instance more options for timing; something faster than extreme would be nice. Could just go to a numbered system so you don't have to keep thinking of new words for the speeds. Would also be nice if one could put the devices into groups to have different effects on fans, instead of either making them all the same or manually setting them.

Thanks for the feedback!

YES! Please anyone share ideas on what you would want to see in future updates, we want to hear from our customers!

We are working on some new stuff, maybe a new look as well, stay tubed.. I cant say to much right now :)

If you want to have some do one thing and other do another, you just need to physically connect what you want onto 1 controller or more, then, setup different profiles for each controller so they can do different "grouped" stuff together. This is possible at the moment and really gives a cool look. Just have to plan what you want connected. 

I will note the idea on how to make it easier so the physical connection is not a limitation and allow a better way to group stuff. - Thx again for the feedback!

Another feature I'd like to see is the ability to save the color layouts we set on the devices and see those show up in the color option, as the RGB and Single options show. Maybe even be able to set a lighting effect to transition/flash between a few color sets.

Any plans to add control of other vendors RGB components? For example Razer Chroma or Asus Aura? I understand that Asus Aura can control the TT Riing controllers, but what about flipping that and have TT RGB Plus control Asus Aura or Razer Chroma?

Please tell me how to do this!

Hi,

You will need this - http://thermaltakeusa.com/Cooler/Cooling_Accessory_/Fan_Controller_/C_00003143/TT_Sync_Controller_TT_Premium_Edition/design.htm

AND you need a motherboard with a 5V RGB LED Header out as well as some of our "Plus Family" Fans/Cooling accessories that we offer that connect to the sync controller.

All info on our website.

I would like to use more than two controllers. I cannot get my third to communicate.
I've tried using the only board 2.0 header, a 3.1 header adapted to a 2.0 header, and my 2.0 splitter by NZXT attached to the mobo 2.0 header.
I have 5 120mm's and 7 140mm's installed.

Can you confirm all the dip switches are correctly assigned. You should be able to do way more then 2. I currently have 4 in use plugged into a nzxt internal hub.

0000,0001,0010 are the settings. I've tried to reconfigure it to several other positions but 0010 does not communicate. I've also tried the daisy chain in different orders and configurations to isolate the one in question. I've submitted an RMA on it. Even when troubleshooting connectivity from the start this one has not been identified by the software.

Good Day, Thermaltake and Thermal Mike. Alvin here from Philippines. I just bought a 3 Fan Pack. Ring Plus Fan TT Premium, and i just love your fans . I love how your Software controls each LED on it and its configs and planning to buy Lumi plus soon.

 

I have 1 suggestion, this maybe complex but mybe possible in the future. Since your TT Sync controller is synced to Aura, RGB Fusion , Mystic Light ONLY. I suggest it will be possible to connect together with the RGB Plus Software. Ifigured out some logic on how. The NEW TT Sync controller can add the old controllers way of connecting to the USB header for the RGB Plus Software to communicate, BUT they must not function at the same time. In your software you might have a switch like "ON, OFF" instead read as "Motherboard control or TT Plus Control" and takes effect on restart so that motherboard can detect if it has access to it or not.

 

Thanks, 

 

PS: I love how your software works but. still AURA SYNC is life. and i like how all the RGB items i have to sync together.

Got the replacement today. Works out of the box, that's what I like to see. Thanks TT.

One suggestion ThermalMike and TT...don't make two different connectors for the same fan.  I have the View 37 ARGB along with 3x120 and 3x140 Pure Plus fans on the way and I found out today that I am returning all of it.  That is because the Pure Plus fans on the View 37 ARGB will not connect to the fan controllers that come with the 3x120 and 3x140 Pure Plus fans.  I cannot express my frustration and anger about this.  I spent months looking at and comparing cases and fans before settling on this only to realize the day before receipt that TT decided to use different connectors on the fans that come with the View 37 ARGB case than those sold separately despite being the same fan.  And absent scrolling down the Design page to see a small pic of a integrated case controller, none of the promo pics of the case at Amazon, Newegg, or even in the gallery on the TT page displays this controller.  Why would a consumer even think that one Pure Plus fan would not connect to the controller sold with other Pure Plus fans?

To make matters worse, TT customer service wouldn't let me just send them the fans from the case and swap in regular Pure Plus 20s + 1 Pure Plus 12 fans with regular connectors.

Even more irritating, if I want to buy the View 37 RGB, well, it costs more than ARGB at the moment.

I've only ever bought TT cases, PSUs, fans, etc., but after this experience, I may need to move on.  

Maybe Mike or the customer service team might see this and contact me to see what we can do.
