Im the one with wierd hardware problems...
I got a ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME LGA1200 ATX motherboard with 3 arg ports named gen 2_1,2_2 and 2_3
Then i bough and installed 5 Phantel neon strips in to Gen 2_1 and gen 2_3 since it was most easy to hide the cables this way.
Now i see my board can handle up to 360 leds in total and my leds only has 234 leds total.
Then i also bought some of these https://phanteks.com/PH-DRGBLED_CMBO.html
combo led strips.
They are 30 pr strip so 60 + 234 = 294 leds in total. This setup use to work when im using 2 argb splitters from asus that splits 1 female to 3 male argb.
It has been working for a ½ year or so. Until last day.
Now recently there was an update or two for armoury crate and i installed it.
Then i started to play new world and suddenly all my leds strips changed from rainbow defaults to green and red flashing colours.
So i tryed to disconnect some of the leds and checked for loose connections. I havent been touching these cables or leds for several month where it use to work fine since i installed em.
So i blame the armoury crate update.
Also when i reboot my pc then the neonstrips changes to default rainbow, but when windows has loadet
and armoury crate was loadet, then they change back to this wierd green and red flashing mode. Then i can sellect static blue and green but if i change
to any colours with red then it starts to flash red and green again.
So i tryed to rearrange the leds and the argb splitter connections. But it was the same outcome. So i just tryed random things and disconnected one of these combo strips and then my led strips started to glow rainbow defaults again, but as soon i connect the second combo strip then i get the same problem.
I checket if the cable was broken or something but it seems fine and dosent show any loose connections.
So i disconnected both of these combo strips that is installed in the front of my pc an dnow it seems to work fine.
For now i have 5 neon strips each connected to one male argb head thru 2 argb ports. So one port use 2 leds and another port use 3 leds.
Why cant i get these combo strips to work all of the sudden ?
They are chained together with phantaks own chained cables. So they use 60 leds in total with 1 male argb head from the splitter of 3 male head.
Sorry for this long post but i had to go in detail.
