I assume the RGB Box is the same as the Motherboard RGB controllers?

I'd presume so, except with many more ports haha.

Yeah. Tried to pull it up and the top came off. It hooked back in easily enough, but it made it really hard to remove from the Velcro.

I was a bit surprised when I first saw the score, but after reading through the review I had to agree with the score haha. Hopefully they'll do better next time!

I too did not expect this from SilverStone since they always made Quality products. Also the LED strips seem Poorly designed.

Dang that's unfortunate, would have expected better as well.

In a somewhat related note, I am starting to get annoyed with how many different implementations of RGB there are, between motherboard manufacturers, companies who make accessories, and even having both RGB and A-RGB headers. But it also reminded me of this:

I'm confused isn't SilverStone using standard ARGB as the mobo signals?

It looks like it from the Website.

https://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=804&area=en

" If their fans are certified to work with ASUS, ASRock, or MSI motherboards with addressable +5V RGB, then they will also work with LSB02. LSB02 is hardware controlled by the included remote, there are no software. "

It's weird, because I'm taking a look at this and looking at Fractal Design's Prisma AL-12 fans (a product we will be taking a look at later), it does not look like it comes with the correct adapter to plug in. These are sort of the header differences that bother me.

That is strange haha. It's too bad they use the same signals but different physical headers. Time to whip out the soldering gun?

I'm Confused now, which one is not Standard?

So there is first RGB vs A-RGB

Then we have ASUS/MSI vs Gigabyte (FYI, Fractal Design Prisma's fan RGB headers are more similar to ASUS and MSI)

Then we have the Silverstone plug

So which one is standard LOL.

Wtf? So how do they make sure their products are compatible with multiple platforms or do they use converter plugs if their signals are the same?
