Hey, hey!

The fans don't have memory to store iCUE/CUE settings when you go and make a custom profile. Maybe some sort of flash could be added to the Commander Pro when it receives power?

Where would you suggest iCUE/CUE settings gets stored if the software is not running to read the software profile you created? Perhaps instead of rainbow, simply having the fans stay off until iCUE/CUE is loaded would be more appropriate?

Didnt the hardware retain the previous setting before regardless of the software running? What are people talking about in this thread then?

the lighting node pro would retain the setting?

Am i not explaining myself correctly?

Hardware playback is the term i guess i am looking for. Turn on Link software configure and shut it down.

Also installed iCue, i wasnt aware that it existed. It is far better than Link/Cue combo.

For Strips and HD, SP, and ML fans, yes, they would retain settings.

For LL fans, never.

well thanks for the clarification... seems like a real design oversight.

hate to say it because the fans are beautiful. But I wont be buying any more corsair fans.

oh well, at least i can use word of mouth to spread the software/hardware deficiencies and help others avoid wasting time on money on something ill conceived.

1 star

LL120 3 Fan Pack with Lighting Node PRO
Software:
Corsair Link v4.9.4.28
Lighting Node PRO v0.5.104

1. Setup all fans in Static Mode.
2. Downgrade firmware to version 0.4.94 (Antigua 0.4.94.bin) on the following link:
http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=171536
3. In Link DON’T CHANGE the Blank Combo Box (Fan Type was LL120). i can select most modes except the last 3.

I works for me anyway.
Thanks for this. It works. Kinda goes against the statement the lnp and cp are unable to do this for LL fans...

Anyway thanks.

I finished reading this thread and the clarification on the LL and how they (according to corsair) will never have hardware playback with the lnp and cp in thier current state.

I really wonder who at corsair made the decision to release the LL kits with LNPs that will “never” work correctly with the LLs. Because that person should be let go.

Anyway this will be my last post. Ive ordered another brand of fans to replace these LLs. I also have a new keyboard on the way to replace my strafe rgb.

Bye corsair.

Please can you make a Firmware with disabled startup LNP effects ? I can't say enough how I started to hate it ! Hate at all when I turn the PC on at night and it starts to flashing in Spiral Rainbow effect all over the room with max brightness untill the iCUE starts and loads my effect I like. When its Firmware related not software, you could just make a custom firmware for those who want the Vegas show off at startup.

Has this rainbow effect become anything? I would like to get it from iCUE.

Can I just ask why the hard NEVER??

I know each user is different, but I like my profiles, and I don't see why fans that NEED a controller to function can't retain a simple lighting profile without needing software.

All the other line of fans do this, why are these so special?

Is the rainbow demo still a thing with the LL? Is there a way around it? I ordered mine without knowig that, and its a huge problem for me. If it is i will just return them straight away...

Corsair previously stated the LL fans will always require active software to maintain a lighting pattern.

Currently all Corsair RGB fans require iCUE to be active or it’s rainbow spiral. Link can still manage SP, HD, and ML fans, but not LL.

*EDIT - Apparently both of these issues are being worked on. (http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showpost...8&postcount=46)

My question is if there is a way make the LEDs off, until the software loads, so there is no more unicorn vomit on the build.
Some posts behind there was a trick to make them act like HD fans, so a static color can be set until the software loads, is that still possible?

Not right now. That would require you to save 0,0,0 but still the same problem. I edited the post above to reflect new information just made available. Not sure there is a timeline, but definitely a step in the right direction. The "no hardware playback" of the LL fans has always prevented me from buying them. I was not overly pleased to see it go away for everything in iCUE. Bringing it back would be a tactically smart thing to do.

Thanks for the info, hope it comes sooner than later.
EDIT:
Corsair link gives you the option to set the LL fans as HD ones, and then you can have static color, even when the software is off (and booting).
