AMD 2700x PRISM RGB Cooler control not working


I just installed my new Ryzen 7 2700x with Wraith Prism cooler and I'm trying to control its RGB lighting. I found CoolerMaster utility offered on your website

I downloaded it and and tried to run, but it just gives me a splash screen with "PLUG IN YOUR CM DEVICE TO GET STARTED" text.

My CPU cooler is plugged directly into CPU_FAN slot on my Gigabyte Aorus x470 Ultra Gaming motherboard. Unfortunately I couldn't find any other ways to change RGB on Prism. Can anyone please assist me?

Thank you

Exact same issue here with the Ryzen 7 2700x - be aware though; I've downloaded the wrong software at first, when you get the message: "Plug in your CM device to get started" - it's for the MAX cooler, NOT Prism with the Ryzen 7 2700x CPU. The version you need, is called: "Wraith Prism V.1.15.exe" and then your cooler shows up in the software. OR it's because the USB pin on the motherboard is facing in the wrong direction, try turning it 180 degrees. (POWER OFF SYSTEM FIRST!), and you also have to connect the cooler to the RGB pin on your motherboard.

BUT - I can now run the software, but every change I make in colors then press apply, nothing happens - There's the Ring LED, FAN LED, Logo LED - neither changes color no matter what I do, and yes it's connected to the Motherboards RGB pin + USB pin (MSI X470 Gaming Plus)? Any advice would be appreciated!
