Default LL120 suddenly flickering

Hi,

I got a problem with my fan setup.
I use 6x LL120. 3x LL120 on the Commander Pro, 3x LL120 on h150i pro.
I got 2x RGB Hub. One for the LL120, one for the SP on the 570x.
Additionally I use a Lightning Node Pro for the LED Stripes.

About a week ago Fan 5 and 6 (hooked to Commander Pro) began to flicker. Didnt change my setup recently. The last change was in late november when I bought the h150i and used 3 LL on it (which were connected to the Commander Pro before)

On Spiral Rainbow 5 and 6 flicker a lot.
On Instant Lighting, if I chose red, 5 becomes red/blue and 6 stays blue.
If I chose green, 5 and 6 blink red - green - red - green.
On white the fans have a little led spot in a different color.

I first thaught the problem was a fan problem so I contacted amazon and got a replacement. Same problem with the fans. So I changed the RGB Hub as well but same problem with 5 and 6.

I disabled fast startup as I read somewhere it could cause a problem.

No idea what to do now, any help is welcome!
thx :)

Edit: icue and all the hardware is on the latest firmware.

My configuration is very similar, and experiencing the exact same issues with nearly the exact same timeframe.

(3) LL120s plugged into a Fan hub which (I believe) is plugged into a Commander Pro. This is by memory, as the PC is wall-mounted and I'd have to take it down to confirm.

2 of the 3 fans flickering constantly. Currently using "Arc" Lighting style with white/black. When flicker occurs, small segment of lights on each fan (2 or 3 LEDs) change to a random color then back to white. Choosing a "Temperature" setup makes everything crazy.

iCue has been updated to latest and greatest, and firmware confirmed to be latest.

Same sort of issue here. 3 LL 120 RGB's, hooked into the provided Lighting Node Pro, then into the Commander Pro. Fan 1 is fine for now, and 2 and 3 have either 1 or 2 LED's malfunctioning. Can't use any sort of animation at all or they go haywire. Set on static color for now (white) and there is a green, an orange, and an orange flickering LED.

Support told me to uninstall all other lighting related programs.
Still didnt work - a day after it suddenly worked normal.

Since today the problem is back.
Flickering and on white green/red spots plus some other crazy color problems.
Same fans as before...

I have a similar issue, when it is doing anything with shifting colors it is super obvious it is flickering or randomly restarting. Even with static colors I occasionally see a fan turn off an LED and then turn it back on (and an LED strip also fully turns off occasionally when set to static, if it is animating it has the same loop bug as the fans). I feel like it got worse recently (not sure if this is due to some bug in the iCue software), as I hadn't really noticed anything like this and then suddenly it was terrible and happened all the time.

My setup is 6 LL fans and 4 RGB LED lighting strips hooked through a combination of a single Lighting Node Pro and a Commander PRO.

Following this thread, just recently installed my new H100i Plat cooler and doing a push pull with the ML RGB fans connected to the cooler hub, but my 6 other LL fans (which I've had for about 6 months) now started doing a very fast flickering every so often.

same issue here. PC was built maybe 6 months ago and the LEDs on all 6 LL fans worked like a jewel.... until a couple weeks ago. The most aggravating part? it randomly goes back to working as designed with no change by me. However, if i were to restart my pc or turn it off and boot it back up, only 1 fan appears to work without defect at all times. the other 5 fans go haywire, flicking rainbow vomit with no apparent pattern. 30 minutes later, I'll look over and lo and behold, the lighting is functioning properly again. Personally, i think too many of us are having this same problem in too many different configurations for it to be a hardware problem or user error. I'm chalking it up to a software problem that Corsair, while they may be working toward a resolution, refuses to openly admit the possibility of it being the software causing the issue.

PS: my problem persists through both Link+CUE2 and iCUE.

Edit: Here it is, working, just as it should

Here's a video of my 5 and 6 fans flickering, all my other fans seem to be fined. I do notice that after a while of my PC being turn on they don't represent themselves back and my profiles play as normal.


In the video it flickers two times.
