    ARGB and asus rog strix b550 f gaming wifi

    Hello
    i built a new PC with an asus rog strix b550 f gaming wifi
    i would like to connect 5 ARGB devices on the only one ARGB header on this mobo
    i read somewhere that only 4 devices should be connected to a single ARGB header and no more
    So i connected only 4 devices using daisy chaining and it works well
    i use armory crate software to drive them with AURA SYNC
    Is it possible to daisy chain the fifth device without any risk ?
    i'm afraid it's too much for one single ARGB header
    Moreover the header support 3A max

    thanks

    it depends on the power draw of the devices ... if the total does not exceed the 3A your fine
    if it does you might want to confider A Powered ARGB Hub or an extension cable that Provides power directly from the PSU

    You might want to look here for those kind of options:
