Hi,

 

I just bought 2x FAN LL120 RGB but dont have controler... I checked on the web some controlers and i found only Corsair Commander PRO, but this is way too much $ for 2 fans. I have mobo ASUS Z370 TUF GAMING PLUS, i've tryed to plug it into AURA Sync RGB Header in mobo but not colors not working, only fans spinning - so i unplugged it instantly. Any ideas how to install those 2 fans? Or any cheaper controlers than comander pro?

The Lighting Node Pro (LNP) is the base minimal requirement. It is included (without LED strips) in the 3x120 multi-pack. You will need to make a value determination whether sending the two back and buying a 3 pack is the more cost effective than adding the LNP separetely. Given the slim difference in cost between the LNP and the C-Pro, it doesn't really seem like a good buy unless you want the strips.

 

You also need to be aware of what you are getting into. LL fans require Link to be active at all times. Without it, they will be a constant rainbow. There is no hardware playback for the LL model. The LL would not be the one I would choose if I wanted a little splash of color in my case. I am not sure it's worth the hassle unless you are doing the whole thing.

 

 

Hello,

 

I just bought 2x LL120 RGB FANS, but dont have controler... And the question is - the controler from HD120 RGB will work corectly with LL120? If yes i will order and problem solved.. But im not sure that why im asking :)

 

Which controller? If you mean the 6 port lighting hub that supplies lighting power to the fans - yes. However, you cannot mix and match fan types on the same lighting hub. No combing HD and LL. You will still need the LNP or C-Pro above for LL fans. They cannot interface with the Link control software without it.

This was mentioned above and multiple times in the other thread. It is why I suggested sending the two back and replacing it with a 3 pack. Both LNP and hub would be included in that bundle, usually at barely more than the equivalent single fan x 3 cost. In the other thread, look at the FAQ in DevBiker's signature. There are a lot of requirements for setting these up and it is again why I cautioned about doing it for 2 fans alone.
