You should use iCUE, that is correct. Link is End-of-Life.

You should connect 3 of the fans to the cooler's controller. The other 3 can go on the CoPro. You can't put all 6 on the cooler as you may go over the current rating (see the Liquid Cooling FAQ for details). You can put all 6 on the CoPro - but having at least 3 of them on the cooler itself works, IMHO, as a good fail-safe for control of the fans. For the 3 that are on the Commander Pro, you have some options as well. First, you can use the cooler temperature as the control source for the fan curve. This will, however, only run when iCUE is running - when iCUE isn't running, they'll be at full speed. Or you can put one of the CoPro's thermistors in the exhaust flow of the radiator. This will be within 1C of the coolant temperature and serves as an excellent proxy for the coolant temperature. Of course, you can do this same setup if you have all six on the CoPro as well.

If you are tempted to use splitters on the CoPro, don't do more than a 2-way splitter.
