Default 570x QL Fan H150i Push/Pull build

This case did its rounds on here when the 570x was released, but today it had a Fan Refresh so though i would drop a few pictures on













will throw a RGB diagram up a little later to show how i achieved the 9 fans and indeed have the H150i Powering all 6 of its fans without using any PWM splitters aswell as having all 6 easily sync speeds/curves

Default I've got the same idea

Just received my 570X mirror black and h150i cooler with 6 QL fans arriving in a few days and I had the same push/pull aspirations with no idea of how to wire it up. Are you still planning on posting a diagram or is this post all I need?

Hey buddy.. will get Xmas morning out the way and then knock up a diagram for you ;).

but for now...

i used one of these on the H150i

https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Catego...r/p/CC-8900355

this allowed me to connect all 6 radiator fans to one header on the H150i and control them as one single fan in iCUE

edit: added an instant-email notification to myself for this thread :)

Thanks for the reply! OK, I've now got this added to my cart. As soon as I read and comprehend your full setup I'll buy whatever I need from corsair/amazon in the US. Right now I have a brand new h150i and brand new 9 x 120mm QL fans. The only hubs and connectors I have is whatever came with my new black mirror case, these 9 fans, and this rad. Do I need a commander pro also?

Yup, got the Commander Pro on the way from Amazon, i ordered it a few hours ago after deducting from your 570X build guide that it's necessary. Hope I'm not missing anything else.

OK. Each of the QL fan packs comes with a Lightning Node Core so I should be all set there; no need to purchase an additional Lightning Node Core.

Thanks so much! I'll assemble it all tonight!

1) Do the purple USB lines from the 2 lightning pros connect to the 2 USB ports on the Commander Pro?

2) I don't have the repeater yet. Can I get the same functionality as you without the repeater or in the meantime I can just get them, the 3 "left" fans, running by plugging into commander pro? This might make more sense once I start assembling and reread your guide.

you could run 6 fans off the commander pro and 3 off of the h150i yes.. technically thats the correct way to do it.. but does mean syncing fans speeds is done in 2 different sections of icue for fans on the front and the back of the rad.. where as by using the repeater hub you control all 6 rad fans via the h150's performance tab in icue., they all appear as a single fan.. set speed/curve.. job done

and yes you can connect the Lighting Node Cores USB's to the Commander Pro.. the Commander Pros and H150i's USB's would go to your Motherboards USB headers...
