RGB RAM & Liquid cooler Upgrades

HP Recommended
Omen Obelisk 875-1120
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm considering upgrading the RAM to the Corsair RGB (DDR4-2666) and the liquid cooler to Corsair's H80i v2.  I have the Omen Obelisk 875-1120 (i7 9700K liquid cooled, 4 RAM slots, RTX 2070 Super)

 

Does anyone know if the RGB on the RAM will be controllable using the iCUE software?  I assume it should work fine.

 

Secondly, has anyone actually installed the H80i V2 on one of these?  If so, since there's no USB headers, if I plug the iCUE cable into the L.C. pump port on the MB, will it work?  The way it currently works is the radiator fan and pump both plug into the MB whereas with Corsair's cooler, the fans plug into the pump, pump power comes from the CPU_Fan header so I assume the L.C. pump header would then be available as a USB header?

You need to use a USB header. Since your mobo doesn't have one, use an adapter cable and run it to the back USB port from the I/0 shield on the back. You can remove one of the back PCIe cover plates and put the cable through that.

Here is an example... https://www.amazon.com/Adapter-designed-motherboard-external-connector/dp/B000V6WD8A

 

I doubt there would be a problem with the iCue software on your omen.
