Hey guys, my Asus mobo came with a fan and argb hub. The thing is, the cable it comes with is a 6 pin PCIE cable, well it’s the same layout anyway. Is it safe to plug this into the PCIE port on the PSU and power it from there? I’m thinking as PCIE uses 12 v, fans use 12 v it should be safe? I’m assuming the hub has a built in downstepper for the 5v argb. This won’t blow up the hub, fans or my argbs right? And before you all say “read the manual”, there is absolutely nothing on the manual that says what psu port to use.

Need more information what exactly do you have, post a link.

In general no because different power supplies can have different pin outs.

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

Motherboard: Asus noted - what model and version.

PSU: make, model, wattage?

Are you using any cables from other PSUs? Do not use modular cables from other PSUs.
