Well after running some test for the past few hours i came to a conclusion:

In usbDeview i found the culprit Port_#0013.Hub_#0001 generic usb hub but even if i disable/uninstall it wont change enything.

In device manager the commander pro shows as generic usb device and in properties it says device works properly... i doubt it...

After running with this in other posts i found out the compo is really faulty some people change them 2 3 more time till they work properly, and i dont have insurance on the case coz it came with out a psu so we only opend it in the store to check if there wasnt broken glass or anything, btw the obsidian 500d rgb is just a perfect case from corsair. Beside the compo.

Did more tests device trouble shoot took like 10 minuts but didnt found any thing wrong, some motherboards have bad usb 2.0 connections that pass electrycity badly to the commander pro,mine is asus maximus viii hero, went again to bios to enabled/disable xHCI and legecy, and did some more stuff but still no luck..

Apperantly the commander some times fries it self and smokes.. now i understand why i saw little smoke coming from it a couple of times.

Probebly mine got fried like this after all the leds worked for maybe 30 minutes combined total.

So after spending days trying to save something that was already doomed i thought i cant just leave my pc like this with out any lights so ilooked around at other fans i saw i the hd/sp rgb hub wont work with my ll120 anyway the only option left for me is buying a pack of 2 ll140 that comes with a controller (lighting node pro) that can use my 6 led rgb hub that came with the case and the connections of the 6 ll fans i already have.
I'll just connect the the fans to the 6 rgb, it to the node pro, and it directly to the usb mobo header. If i didnt miss any thing.

This is probebly the cheapest fastest easiest option i got right now.

So devbiker after reading so much threads you are probebly the most experienced here, what are your thoughts on the node pro? Will it bring my fans back from the darkness? Will my mobo even recognized it not like the compo, and will it fry itself or get anothe faulty product with all the respect for corsair for making really good products something with the commander just went wrong..

Again thank you and i hope some of the information here will help some one along the way with this kind of problem.
