Cooler Master Software says "Please plug in your cm devices to continue"??

Jump to solution

I am trying to change the RGB settings on the Wraith Prism Cooler that comes with my Ryzen 7 3700X processor. The cooler master software says "Please Plug in your cm device to continue." Of course, it is plugged in. You can't move past this screen. The motherboard is the ROG Strix X570-E. I have the Wraith plugged into the CPU header and all is working well. I have tried plugging it into another 12V but I get an on-screen warning say to plug in the CPU to the right plug. Really appreciate a solution or guidance towards one. I should say, in case it isn't clear...I want to change the color of the RBG in the cooler and the Cooler Master Software should allow me to do that if I could get it to recognize the unit.

Thanks!

This YouTube fixed that error by switching the USB connector to a USB 2.0 connector on a X570 Motherboard: [FIX] Plug in CM Device | Wraith Prism RGB Setup!! | ASRock X570 [2020] - YouTube

Thanks! My stumbling block was where to connect the other end of the USB Connector. It was looking like it involved removing the cooler from the processor and basically almost completely reversing the build to get the connector hooked up, then rebuilding, then testing. One of the links you provided showed a drawing where I could see the connectors with little rubber caps in them on the edge. Changed everything and made my day. Suddenly everything else I figured out made sense and the last detail of my build is complete! Made my day thanks to you.

Glad you got your Prism RGB working normally. You aren't the first User to have issues connecting the RGB and making it work.

Take care.

So I see. I put up a quick YouTube Video that might contribute to helping others needing a solution.
