Legion Tower 5i - CPU RGB Fan lighting not working

2020-09-05, 4:43 AM

I got my Tower 5i desktop yesterday, and after started the machine, I found the rear RGB fan is working but the CPU RGB one is not working. While booting up the machine, both of the fans will light up, but the CPU fan light will off after 1 sec. I contacted the customer support, the agent asked me to update my Lenovo vantage APP and the BOIS, but still, the light is not working.

Not really, I have contacted the support agent, they were talking about the Vantage software issue, the RGB control got the wrong path for the CPU fan something like that. But he was not sure as well, the agent said it will up to me if I wanna do a replacement but with a high probability that the same issue will be happening on the replacement one as well. 

So, I don't know, I think we could wait for a while to see if the issue will be fixed in the upcoming updates?

I got it fix after I connect the cpu fan ARGB cable to the ARGB3 pin on the back board (not the window panel side). you can open the non window panel side easily without a screwdriver.

I am not sure if it will break the warranty. if you worry about the warranty you can wait till vantage update,  I am not sure whether the vantage point to the wrong pin or the technician plug into the wrong pin.

Hope this help, if you want to give it a try, be careful to plug the cable in, because the pin is very soft.

Hi DanMack,

 

I uploaded the pic, you can find the small ARGB borad when you open the non-window panel.

Thanks Bert88!  It worked for me too!  

 

One strange thing I found is that I can't seem to set the rear and cpu lights to use different effects.  Whenever I change one, the other one also changes.  No big deal as I'd probably wouldn't want to use different effects anyways.
