    Hi!

    It's my first post so hopefully I am not messing anything!

    I got these 2 cables:

    STRIMER 8-PIN RGB PCIE VGA POWER CABLE

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/lian-li-strimer-8-pin-rgb-pcie-vga-power-cable-cm-018-ll.html

    and

    STRIMER PLUS ADDRESSABLE RGB 24 PIN MOTHERBOARD CABLE

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/lian...e-rgb-24-pin-motherboard-cable-ca-787-ll.html

    The VGA cable connectors don't fit the 24 PIN controller.

    In description it says - Compatible with mainboards with digital 3-pin RGB header - My mobo is Asus TUF X570 which has only 4PIN ARGB headers. Any advice how to make the 8 PIN cable to work please? Should I should buy some sort of splitter or anything?




    Thanks for looking

    They are not compatible with your motherboard RGB. The strips are 5V Addressable, your board is 12V non addressable.

    You need an addressable RGB controller + software.
