It depends on the control source for the fan. The Commander Pro natively can detect it's own temp sensor probes at all time, software or no. But in order to use temperature sources from other components (for example your GPU), the device has to give the motherboard the info, which then in turn passes it on the Commander Pro. You need the software active for communication. In my experience, unreadable values without the software running (like GPU temp) will cause a fan blast. You can use the default presets that run from CPU temp to mitigate this slightly, but not ideal. Use the temp probes. Those work all the time and are useful.

On the H150i they are all have their own fan channel 1,2,&3 so you could, although there is no reason to ever do so on a U style radiator.

The fans on the H150i will not require any connection to the Commander Pro. iCUE will be able to control their speed from the H150i's internal fan controller. You will have all 6 at your disposal. Regardless, unlike the RGB Lighting hubs, the fan header selection is irrelevant and you can use any combination of header positions and number.
