    ROG THOR 850W - Can't connect RGB to MAXIMUS XI GENE

    So I don't understand, I thought THOR will come with the NODE to connect it to your motherboard, instead it comes with the 3 pin and another connector that I've never seen in my life. And since Maximus XI Gene comes 2x 4pin RGB HEADERS.

    One would assume that ROG product will support another ROG product.

    How do I connect it ? Do I need to get adapter ?

    This is the 1200 Watt model:



    Does your 850 have all the same connections?

    Not as many but yes, the one connection on the left I have 2 wires that I can plug in there, addressable and this 3 pin.

    How do I hook it up to Gene that has 2x 4pin RGB headers.

    What do the Thor instructions say about that three pin connector, the one on the right in your pics?

    Nothing, it is one of the worst written manuals, it just states the cables, and by that particular one it just says : rgb cable
    It's not really a manual, it's like 3 pages.

    That's it.

    You'd need 3 pin to a 4 pin adapter but I don't think they sell those. My assumption is that you won't be able to control the LEDs. (I own the 1200W THOR). It's setup to only work with addressable headers.

    That's not cool on a product with such a price tag and available aesthetic functions.
