XD5 Pump Connection Question

Recommended Posts

I have the XD5 Pump and I am setting this up. I have a question regarding the wires coming off of this. It says to "Connect the XD5 RGB's 4-Pin fan connector into Fan Port # 6 on my commander pro".

 

With that being said, I currently have 6 fans in my system. Obviously I want to control all of my fans using iCue. If this is the case, will I need to set up a 2nd commander pro to do so? or is there a way around this?

 

All 6 ports are being used currently on my commander pro by my fans. I don't think I can connect to a spot on my motherboard, cause if so then won't I lose the control with iCue for that?

 

 

 

2nd question..

 

 

There are 2 wires coming from the top of the pump.

 

Labeled....

 

Direct attach "in"

Daisy chain "to next"

 

I am assuming I just need to connect to one of these for RGB control? But which one?

 

Any help will be great. TY

Pretty sure the "daisy chaining" is only meant to do CPU/GPU/Pump and nothing else. Like Caedros said, just get a Y splitter. I got a couple off of Amazon for a few bucks and have the top 2 of my case tied to it since they're on my 240 rad.

 

EDIT: Sorry. Thought I read you saying you were going to try to daisy a fan or something to it. Been a looooong day for me. lol

I am looking on Corsair website for the y-splitter. Do you have a link to it by chance?

 

So, I can connect my CPU RBG cord to it?

 

I also have the GPU block as well. So I can daisy chain all 3 together and just run 1 of those plugs to the commander pro right?

Here's the y-splitter cable: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Accessories-|-Parts/PC-Components/Cooling/Hydro-Series%E2%84%A2-H75-H105-Fan-Y-Header-Cable/p/CW-8960019

 

Yes, just connect pump-res to Commander PRO RGB channel first, then GPU block to female (daisy chain) connector on pump-res and lastly add a CPU block (the latter is the only one that doesn't have daisy chaining ability and should be connected last).
