I am planning a new build and wanted to add some Addressable RGB flare to my setup. However, according to the Asus product specs, the mobo may have a limit on how many addressable LED I can connect to the ADD RGB connector, which is 3A or 60 LEDs. 😭
Someone in some forum said that it's just a protection limit to avoid damage or loss of quality, and the board/software has no way of knowing how many LEDs there are, which is good news.
My question is, if there is a 3A limit on that 5v ARGB port, what happens if I want to connect more Addressable LEDs? Is there a way to provide extra power like a hub or power splitter? Any suggestion would be GREATLY appreciated.
In case you're wondering, here's the list of RGB parts that will utilize the ADD RGB port on this board, potentially over 164 LEDs:
- 2 x Strips
- 5 x Fans that use separate LED/RGB cable
- GPU bracket
- Case that has 2 more strips builtin
