    Question Need Help With TUF Gaming Build!

    Hello,

    I recently built a new TUF Gaming system but the problem is that ARGB TUF Logo on the LC240 AIO Pump doesn't seem to be working as it should. As you can see below, currently its ARGB cable is connected to the 3-way connector and plugged into 'ADD_GEN_2_1' port however there's no light on it at all but 2x120mm ARGB fans work with the Aura Sync. But if I disconnect AIO Pump's ARGB cable from the 3-way connector and plug it into the 4-pin 'RGB_HEADER' port, it only lights white in breathing mode. No matter what I do, which port I try, with or seperate from the 3-way ARGB cable, I couldn't make it work with the Aura Sync. I also tried reinstalling the Armoury Crate but nothing has changed.

    All GT501 front RGB fan cables are connected to each other and plugged into 'RGB_HEADER' port. (12)

    it only lights white in breathing mode

    Is the pump RGB cable a 3 pin or 4 pin cable? You might have got a mixed up AIO set (ARGB Fans and RGB Pump).

    Three pin ARGB (5v)

    Four pin RGB (12V) are controlled by the motherboard in Aura Creator.

    All are 3-pinned as it is shown in the manual.

    Defective pump ARGB

    Lights white in breathing mode when connected to RGB (12V - 4 pin). No light when connected to ARGB (5V - 3 pin).
