Default Corsair Obsidian 1000D Build Advice for RGB Fans

Hey all

A long time Corsair user and I've pretty much keep swaying in its direction when the CUD hits. My latest venture is moving my soft tubing that's in my Graphite 780T to a hard line in the Obsidian 1000D.

I have the tower, along with the 360mm EK Performance 360 rad from my current loop and to add to that I bought the Alphacool Nexxxos XT45 V2 420mm rad.

And to fill up the space I bought a 2 pack of LL140's along with a single LL140. These are going up top on the 420mm rad.

I also bought a 3 pack of LL120 along with 5 single LL120's for the front.

I'll be using 2 of my existing 3 HD120's for the rear.

This is where I need your advice. I have 3 rgb fan hubs (1 from my HD120 pack, LL120 and LL140) and a lighting node pro from the LED kit (the one with 4 LED strips).

Am I correct in having this combination?
  • 4x LED strips connect to Lighting Node Pro Node 1
  • 2x HD120 fans to RGB Hub 1
  • RGB Hub 1 connects to Lighting Node Pro Node 2 which connects to USB header on 1000D CoPro
  • 1000D front LED connect to Node 1 on 1000D CoPro
  • 6x LL fans(3x LL140 and 3x LL120) to RGB Hub 2 which connects to the pass through from the 1000D LED
  • 5x LL120 fans to RGB Hub 3 which connects to Node 2 on CoPro

In my head this works but are there any drawbacks in terms of the iCue lighting animations?

I tried to do a layout diagram like Zotty below but this is the best I could come up with (lol)
