Icue H115i Elite cooler mounting problem with the official LGA 1700 retrofit set.
Thanks, just what i thought, BTW also thanks for all your help !👍
Corsair 5000d Air Flow Fan Hub Not showing up in Icue
my thoughts exactly lol. plus I do have 2 extra fans because I went overkill and ordered 6. I'm sure ill upgrade them one day and I will def remember this moment lol. Thanks for the input!!
AIO push pull set up

HydroX / 5800x / H150i zu heiß / Temperaturproblem
Indeed, that was my next step to see how it works. thx LeDoyen
Help Connecting RTX 3090 TI to HX1200i
i am not sure if we understand each other ^^' just to make sure : If the 8 pin does not fit in the PSU, then it's not a corsair cable, or it's a cable made for some specific one off models like the AX1200 that do not fit in the HXi. either way, the small 2 pins connector is a dead short from pin to pin, which will basically connect 12V to ground if you manage to fit it in the PSU. On the PSU end you have a row of 4x 12V, and 4x ground. connecting that thing in will make the PSU go in short circuit protection.
Routing fans thru Commander Core vs nodes?
Most all Corsair devices will use a SATA power connector. These are the flat wide type that are also used by HDD/SSDs. You should have a pile of these in your PSU cable bag. It is OK to put multiple devices on the same cable as these typically have 2-4 SATA connectors per cable. PWM repeater - SATA is what powers the fan motors and takes the load off the Commander Core. PWM signal and control comes from the Commander Core. Front 3 fans are good for this. Nominal power use. Lighting Node Core - SATA provides the 5v power for lighting. Just the one rear fan RGB cable to here. Extremely low power use. Commander Core - Here is your central control. It will use the most power of all these devices, so when it comes time to pair things off and you have to run an extra SATA power cable from the PSU, this is the one to get its own cable or with a low power device like either of the above. Don't put your Commander Core with 2-3 HDDs if you don't need to. This is also the one device that uses all the voltage rails, so I prefer to keep it away from HDDs/SSDs that also do the same. This is likely an unnecessary precaution, but if you have to plan a layout you might as well take some precautions.
