    Not sure if this is the correct forum for this question, but...

    I've got a Phanteks Glacial 1080Ti block for the Asus Strix card, and (due to being used) did not come with the connector cable for the little RGB boards in the block. They use a very small 4-pin connector, and I can't seem to find any cables (or even just plain connectors) that would seem to fit this socket. I've checked Phanteks, Amazon, NewEgg, eBay, and plain old Google, of course. Hell, I've even scoured the Molex site... I'm not afraid to custom make the cable I need.

    I'm hoping someone here can point me in the direction of the correct cable, or at the very least, the correct connector so I can make a cable. Pictures below...

    Thanks for the reply, but that cable won't help. It is for adapting the cable that connects to the RGB boards so that it can be used with standard RGB setups - it plugs into the existing cable. I have 2 of these, actually. What I am missing the cable that actually connects to the RGB boards itself...

    The one in the pictures above. And yes, it is 4 pins, but the socket is very tiny.

    I know exactly what you're talking about, I've got the same card and block. I suspect that plug is a standard mini molex of some kind. Feels like I see them all over the place for things like fan plugs on GPUs and other electronics. I'll look closely at mine tonight and see if I can ID it for you.

    I actually broke down and contacted Phanteks support. They were willing to sell me a new cable for ~$10 shipped. I went ahead and bit the bullet on it - it's not overly expensive all things considered....
