Default Daisy chain with the Lighting Node Pro?

I have a commander pro + Lighting node pro that I want to connect through their respective RGB LED 3-pin ports (and not use a USB cable, which I can't find anymore)

in other words, I'm using a Male-To-Male 3-pin corsair RGB LED cable that you normally use to connect corsair RGB strips/RGB Fan controllers to be able connect the lighting node pro and commander pro

will this work?

here is an illustration https://imgur.com/a/iW3oJds

the PURPLE line/cable is what i mean

No, it won't work, no way, no how. You might blow out the NoPro or the CoPro tho.

As for the USB cable, any standard mini USB cable will work.

okay, since i can't find my mini usb to motherboard usb cable, i decided to order one of these... will it work?

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....1zO-3YnT-L.jpg

it only has one row of pins/cables on the motherboard side, versus the stock cable that had two rows. not sure if that is important?

Yes, that'll work. You'll just need to be super-careful to plug it in correctly.

Not just that but reversing it. Tip: Black/Ground wire goes on the same side as the "key" on the USB connection - so the side where a pin is missing.

its not immediately apparent to me how to plug it in properly since i dont have the cable yet, but i will just compare with another internal usb header i have already plugged in.

thanks for your help and answers!!!

edit: oh i remember now, its only "doubleheaded" for 2 usb ports. each one if 1 usb port.
