You would still need the RGB Lighting Hub. This is the power source for the fan lighting. It runs from SATA (PSU) and then connects to the Lighting Node Pro for one of the two RGB channels. The 4 strips take the other RGB channel. You can purchase it separately. It comes automatically in most multi-packs.

The lighting is controlled using iCUE via the Commander Pro or Lighting Node Pro. The Fan Hub is connected to these.

Go through the RGB FAQ; it's all explained there.

i see it says you cannot mix fan types in a single fan rgb controller.
does this also count for a 120mm and a 140mm rgb fan that are from the same type but just a different size?
the LL140 And LL120

You can mix different sizes of the same fan type. That doesn't matter.
To iCUE, it doesn't matter if it's a 120mm or 140mm fan ... just if it's LL or HD or ML or ...
