TTRGB Plus is not read system temp !!PWM not working!! (Riing trio fans with AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X)

Recommended Posts

I read about the Tctl and the Tdie temperatures and these parameters are specialties of the threadripper CPUs. 

Here is the link: 

So i think this is not a bug, this is a feature of the Threadripper processors. 

"Threadripper uses a +27°C offset. So average temp of the dies is 43°C but to make sure fans are running 'fast enough', fan curves should use the 70°C mark."

That's right, it is a threadripper "feature" but in tt rgb plus case the fan curve is too high for tctl. Basically if it reads the tctl as 70°C tt rgb plus sets the fans to over 1400 rpm (at idle) as per my first picture, which to me is to high. Sure it drops my cpu true temp down to like 30-35°C, but its too noisy. 

I prefered version 1.2.7 which reads true temp(tdie), which sets my fans at around 500-1000rpm depending on temp and load. Much quieter and would still keep true temps around 40°C idle, 50°C gaming. 

How loud are your 23 fans running Bearbite. Is RGB plus reading tctl on yours? Must sound like a jet engine if they're running as fast as my 5😁

Yes, you are correct, same thing here, too.

It would be the best for the user to be able to select which temperature or temperatures the TT RGB plus uses.
Because my system has 3 GPUs and I have many GPU intensive task while the processor load is only 30%.

Therefore, it would be good if I control the temperature based on the temperature of the external sensor or water.
I have 3 radiators in my computer, one of which cools the processor and 2 cools the video cards. Therefore, it would be good if we could set it all up for each controller. So if the processor heats up, only the fans on the processor cooler will switch to higher speeds, not the whole PC will buzz.

Yeah that was the problem I was having. The adapters I made are are the only way I could control temps on my gpus separately from the cpu. I really wish they would change the software to assign a controller a temp sensor and use a fan curve. But currently all my temps and fans are controlled by the MB software.

I (just) have 1 custom loop with CPU and GPU connected with a 420mm rad with 3 Riing plus 140 fans attached (plus 2 as case fans), but yeah being able to select which temperature TT RGB gets from the HWINFO plugin would be awesome. All the temps are available, you just have to look through the info section to see that.

Obviously also being able to edit the fan curve would be even better. And per controller or even per fan customisation would be icing on the cake. But I get the feeling that might be asking to much.

Hey Chris, do you have all fans running on different MB 4 pin connectors, or do you have like a pwm splitter cable or 2nd fan controller? Also interested in how you power the fans, the motherboard does the pwm, but do the tt controllers still supply power or is it also the MB connectors? It looks like you have the 4 MB pins connected to the fan, is that right? Would love a diagram if you have the time. It would be awesome to be able to control my 3 rad fans via 1 MB pwm 4 pin. would a splitter cable work if I were to splice it like yours do you think? Anyway, cool mod.

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.

Thanks for the reply chris, I think I get it. The TT Controller controls and powers the LEDS via 4 pins and receives the fan RPM (TACH) via yellow wire. I think your right with those wires being 5v, di, do, gnd. I have the Pacific Lumi Plus LED Strip 3Pack and the pins on the LED strips are labelled like that. https://www.thermaltake.com/pacific-lumi-plus.html Apparently you can chain these strips together, but might not be long enough for your application. Not sure how many you can chain together.

So the 4 pin connector yellow wire is also fan RPM (TACH) and the rest are power, gnd and pwm signal. I figured you would want a pwm hub for extra power like SATA or molex due to so many fans. 

I might have to give this a go myself. maybe lol, depends on part cost, sourcing parts etc.

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.

Hi, 

Thank you for supporting Thermaltake amd your advice.

We are working on combining our software, release soon.
