Default Wiring diagram Help

I have tried browsing through some of the wiring diagrams but im still a little confused. Most of the diagrams dont address the Hydro X system with more than 6 fans and mulitple led strips.

Here is what i have:

Corsair HX850i Power Supply

8 QL Fans 3 front, 2 pull radiator, 2 push radiator, 1 back of case

I have 2 RGB LED lighting pro strips ( though i dont know if i really need both)

Hydro X XC7 CPU block - Has RGB
Hydro X XD5 Pump - Has RGB

4 thermal temps-came with Com Pro
1 coolant temp- for XD5 Pump



I have the Corsair 680X case

The case came with a lighting node pro & lighting node core( i believe)

I bought 2 Commander Pro's (on accident) and another RGB hub
I also have 2 more lighting node core.


From what I understand, There are numerous ways to hook all this up depending on what smart devices I have. I just dont what is going to be the best and easiest. Any help is appreciated.

The case comes with a Lighting Node Pro and RGB Fan LED Hub. The Lighting Node Core comes with the QL-RGB fans.
What I'd look at is:
Commander Pro
- Ch1: RGB Fan LED Hub + 5 QL Fans (Radiator + Rear)
- Ch2: HydroX RGB
Lighting Node Pro
- Ch1: 3 QL Fans (Front)
- Ch2: 2 Strips (Are you sure you have the right ones? They come in 4 packs)

Put the pump thermistor in the CoPro as well as the other 3. Place them around the case - hard to exactly where right now.

For the fans - get 1 powered PWM Hub. This is for the 4 QL Fans on the radiator. They all need to be the same speed so this works well. Connect this to the CoPro as well as the other 4 fans and the pump. Make sure that you specify 4-pin/PWM for both the PWM hub and the Pump.

Ah, well then.
You can keep the suggestion above and just add an LNP just for the 12 strips.
