ML120, some questions on RGB lighting hub and Lighting Node PRO

Hi all,

I want to buy 6 ML120 PRO RGB.

 

Should I need to buy 2 RGB lighting hub and Lighting Node PRO?

Or 1 RGB lighting hub and a Lighting Node PRO is enough to drive 6 fans?

 

Is there some guide on how to connect the RGB lighting hub and Lighting Node PRO?

 

Why I need to have two "things" to drive a fan?

How can I connect those things to my motherboard and to the fan?

 

Can I use this things to drive even an RGB led strip for example?

 

please answer all the question if possible.

 

thanks

1 Hub and 1 NoPro is enough to drive all 6.

 

You need both due to power requirements for the fans AND because the fans operate in series, allowing individual control of every single LED, rather than duplicated in parallel, where each fan is identical (like you see with most implementations).

 

And ... you'll have a spare channel to add up to 6 strips.

 

Check out the RGB FAQ linked in my signature.

thanks for the reply.

if I connect 6 fans to the hub, where can I connect the 6 strips?

The strips will be connected directly to the Lighting Node Pro.

 

This is covered in the FAQ that I suggested that you check out. You did ask for a guide ...
