Cooler master argb controller confusion.

Long story short, I want to upgrade a old pc with some RGB. The motherboard has no RGB headers on it.

Then I saw this controller MFP-ACBN-NNUNN-R1. It's a cooler master argb hub. It's bigger than the argb small controller.

This controller, MFP-ACBN-NNUNN-R1, is not listed as being compatible with masterplus+ software.

Is this a mistake, does MFP-ACBN-NNUNN-R1 controller not work with masterplus+. This has me very confused. It looks like a better small argb controller, but somehow not supported by masterplus.

Seeing all this after I have bought a masterbox TD500 mesh argb. Will be adding 4 more argb fans (cm SF argb). Is my project dead now, or the controller works, was mistakenly not listed.

Thank you for any help.

Linked controller is not the same

Thank you for your response.

The controllers are not quite the same.
This controller is the one that's listed as compatible, it's the one you linked.

It doesn't look the same as this, the one I linked in my question. There are different. The one linked below is argb, the one you linked is RGB.

Then the straight answer.

1. Don't buy what's not on the compatibility page.
2. Ask the maker directly.

Why must it be this incompatible model?

You are probably right

You probably right. Was hoping would find someone who has it and it worked for them.

Hopefully I still will. Thanks for your help.
