Hi,

I recently bought the alpacool waterblock for a MSI 3070 Ventus (https://www.alphacool.com/shop/gpu-...ra-acryl-gpx-n-rtx-3070-ventus-with-backplate). My current mobo (Asus Maximus IX Hero) doesn't have a D-RGB connect so I started looking for D-RGB controller with manual control. I landed on the Panteks Noir RGB controller (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07BT8JXSG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I plugged in the manual control remote, the sata connector to power it and plugged in the D-RGB cable into the controller but the RGB on the block isn't turning on. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Is the controller not compatible?

Sorry, since Phanteks has no manual about this prodcut on their website, i can`t tell you anything about it. Or did you found a PDF? Is the block the only D-RGB stuff you have?

I am not sure if Phanteks is using a proberitary standard for the cables. And the manual says nothing about it. Sorry, i can`t really help here. Could be that the controller is not compatible but could also be, that the aRGB strip on the block has a defect.
There are tons of controller on the market. Some have own brand connections others are using normal connections. This is a simple small controller from us: https://www.alphacool.com/shop/modd...a-eiscontrol-addressable-rgb-controller-black
