FIrst of all hi,
secondly, MODERATORS if this is NOT the correct Forum for this Thread please move my thread.

I need your help/advice.
my main build is ASUS x570 ROG HERO VIII and the case is INTERTECH INFINI 2. I have done (with a friend's help) a lot of modding regarding ARGB devices. This is 100% argb build.
here is a list of the ARGB devices we have added:
VGA Holders vertical and Horizontal, backplates, 4 lighting bars, 4 coolermaster prismatic fans, 2 argb strip lights, Lian Li strimmer plus cables (24 and 8 pins).

here is the problem. We have added most of these on the ARGB controller that came with the box (INTERTECH infini2) we filled it and now we tried to put SPLITTERS (coolermaster argb splitters) to power some external argb devices. we have an issue that once we put more devices now the rest of the devices go haywire.

what can we do to solve this issue? is the problem we have put a lot of weight on the ARGB controller? is is a problem with the header?

what choices do we have? i am thinking of buying more contollers (like coolermaster to lower the pain). I will upload pictures later.

PS the pc also uses corsair icue products that integrates wtih ASUS aura...

should i focus more on the icue side?

Welcome to ARGB hell.

Yeah, sounds like you're overloading that device and need more ARGB controllers.
As for icue and asus integration... yeah no, thats garbage and breaks constantly. Good luck getting that to work reliably.

The only consistent way to get ARGB working in my build was to stick with true ARGB (nothing proprietary, ditched my corsair stuff) off a 6 port controller (MSI with hardware controller + remote in one build, razer via software in main build) and then daisy chain a limited number of devices off each port, if needed (for example my PCI-E ARGB cables only have four LED's, so daisy chaining those is absolutely safe - sticking a bunch of 10 LED fans in a row? less so.)

Using mobo controllers and mixed 'compatible' software was a hell i'm never going back to.

+1,, Still on Icue and aurosync here, my set-up is as functional as it is pleasant to use, ie it's broken and a pain in the ass , until they change their software again wherein it'll get worse as it has each time, it became worse, I too can't recommend it.
