Hello, I recently got the NZXT H510 Elite in black, I've managed to build the whole computer with an additional AER 2 RGB fan in the back and a Kraken X62 280mm. But I m having trouble connecting the pre applied light strip to the HUE 2 lighting controller cause the connector cable isn't long enough, I would like to know if there are any solutions? Thanks in advance. :)

pcpartpicker.com appears to show the ''NZXT HUE2 controller'' mounted on the underside of the motherboard in a 3 1/2 inch drive bay in an NZXT tower case :

SoWHERE did you mount yours?

It appears that NZXT is using a standard JST-style (SM, XT or WHY) 4-pin RGB connection on the controller :

With the proliferation of the LED Lighting and RGB Strips that turn Computer Cases into Lighted Displays and/or Billboards, my suggestions are :

1.) If possible, MOVE the NZXT HUE2 controller closer to the RGB strips.
2.) Contact the place you purchased the Computer Parts to see if they have any suggestions or extensions.
3.) Contact another Local Computer Shop to see if they have any suggestions or extensions.
4.) eBay
5.) aliEXPRESS

Unknown. It LOOKS SIMILAR in size and layout to the JST SM 4-pin female, but if you look closely, yours has the lock on the female end, whereas the JST SM has the lock on the male end, with ''ears'' and the catch on the female end. It may fit and contact, but it WOULD NOT ''lock''. It reminds me of the under-the-counter LED lights that I once installed. JST connectors come in all shapes and sizes...JST GH, SM, XH, Mini, Micro, SH, EH, etc...so...you'll just have to research it.

Or, just contact NZXT directly and see if they have any extensions.

Yeah okay will do, don't understand why they don't specify what you need on the item page
