Default RGB fan compatibility with 570x

OK, I'm sure this question has been asked a thousand times (I did a cursory search thru the forum, and read thru Zotty's post regarding this topic), but I'm still needing some help.

I currently have a SP120 Pro that doesn't seem to be compatible with the RGB controller that comes stock with the 570x. What I need to know is which model of fan will be compatible with the 570x RGB controller.

Would this fan be compatible?

Thanks in advance for your patients and help...

Yea, the button controller/rgb controller for the 570x.

Sorry, for the post. Your, sticky on the subject was very through and well done. I just couldn't figure out exactly which fan I needed.

Thank you very much for the help!

The SP-120 RGB Pro and the Non-Pro versions use completely different RGB LEDs that are not compatible with each other. Many years ago the HD-120 and SP-120 were released the HD-120 used what is now the defacto standard, while SP-120 RGB LEDs use a different protocol. You can control both with a Lighting Node Pro or a Commander Pro. I don't own a Lighting Node Core, so I can't say if you can run non-Pro fans on it. Though no mater what you can't run Pro and non Pro off the same RGB Hub or Lighting Node Core.
