Liquid Cooler Control

Hi all, I have an NZXT Kraken X62 and I am wondering if it is ok or safe to pass-through the USB portion to a windows vm.

I'm not really sure what the USB cable is for and I don't want to ruin my threadripper.

 

Also, if I do pass that through, will I be able to use the NZXT cam software to control the lighting and monitor the CPU temps?

 

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

I am looking into buying an x62 cooler. Is the RGB lighting working for you in general?

Have you been able to set lighting / fan speed up through usb pass through (that should not at all be harmful)?

Not sure if this helps the OP or the follow-up poster but I use a Corsair Commander Pro to adjust LED's and Fan speeds. This device is plugged in to a USB 2 header on my MOBO and shows up as a device eligible to attach to a VM. By doing so I am able to control everything using iCue software in a Windows VM which is running almost all the time. My Pump is NOT attached to this device and I control its speed as well as the LED's for the pump through the bios. I'm sure they could be hooked into the Commander but I am out of ports.

 

With this said I would like to control these device in UnRaid when the VM is not running but have yet to investigate a method to do so. Its on my list of things to do.

Thanks for the reply, I will rather go with an AIO that can be entirely controlled by my mainboard's headers.

I understand. The farthest I got with this was trying the Dynamix Temp plugin but even after installing Perl I could not get the drivers to detect. I'm on a Gigabyte X399 with a 1950X. Haven't tried any other plugins yet but would assume that would be what is needed.
