Not enough internal USB ports to power all Corsair Link devices


Bartiemus

Recommended Posts

Hello I have an issue where my motherboard only has one internal USB header however all of Corsairs devices require a USB plug to use a the link function.

 

With the Commander Pro I can split it into two but I am still short.

 

I have

 

860AXI Power Supply

 

H115i All in one cooler

 

Commander Pro

 

Fan Controller for the HD RGB Fans

 

If I use an internal USB hub am I going to have any power issues with it?

You should be able to do the following:

 

Plug the Commander Pro into your internal USB header.

 

Plug your AX860i and H115i into the Commander Pro's USB headers.

 

As for the HD RGB fan controller, I'm a bit confused. Are you talking about the six port fan hub? Or are you using a Lighting Node PRO?

I plan to route everything through the commander pro. I dont plan to use the lighting node so will the commander pro give me enough usb ports to do that?

 

Yes,

 

Commander Pro into mobo USB header.

 

AX860i & H115i into the Commander Pro USB headers.

 

HD RGB fan controller to LED1 on Commander Pro (RGB fan controller is SATA powered)

 

You could also control the fan speeds via the CP
