A Closer Look
NZXT’s Hue 2 RGB Ambient Light controller looks quite similar to the internal Hue 2 controller, but with different ports available.
The only ports are two RGB channels, a micro-USB data connection, and a DC inlet.
Instead of more channels on the side, both sides simply have a nice grill pattern.
The power adapters included cover most of the world, EU, Australia, North American, and UK standard plugs are included.
The plug slides into a socket on the power adapter. The adapter is rated 100-240VAC input and 12VDC @ 2A output.
We’ll be using the North American plug adapter.
Our kit is designed for 26-32” monitors and includes 4 segments each of 250 and 300mm. The LED strips are magnetic as well as the preinstalled 3M double sided tape to secure them to your monitor.
Each end has a four-pin connector, one side is female and is the signal infeed side, and the other is male and passes the signals on to the next strip. The connectors are labeled “H-U-E-2”.
To make the corners without unsightly cables, NZXT includes two 4-pin right angle adapters. Each has a key mark that points to the +5V pin as shown.
