Ok so im completely new to the RGB ways. I just bought a Lian Li o11 Dynamic XL case and the Asus x570 viii Hero and I bought 6 of Corsair LL120 fans that comes with Lighting Node Pro in each box and a Corsair 150i . Do I also need to buy Corsair Commander Pro? Im so confused. Do I even need any of them or does my case cover that? IM confused as to the entire operation of these things. Any help would be great. Thanks.

You don't need a Commander Pro but they are really great to have (and use). It provide fan speed control and temperature sensors to measure ambient temps, which is super-useful, in additional to the RGB control. But for just RGB, you're fine with the Lighting Node Pro - you'l just need to control your fans via the motherboard.

Take a look at the RGB FAQ in my sig.

to add to DevB's info...

 

 

you have 2 choices really when it comes to controlling the speeds of the fans.... motherboard and its (no doubt crappy) software/bios or a Commander Pro and iCUE.

 

Given you have Corsairs RGB and AIO then iCUE would be preferable as this would bring all control into one place..

 

the Commander Pro will control both RGB and FAN speeds of all your fans and indeed the H150i

 

my advice is yes... you need one.. its the heart of the system

 

have a read of the below faq

ok thanks guys. One more quick question. All of my fans i bought are the LL120 pro's id like the fans to be uniform BUT should i put the ML's on the 150i or can i just stick with the LL120's for the same sound and performance etc? The ML120's will look a bit different than the LL120's i presume

What i just did was buy 3 x ML120 pro's . I can take them back just incase. But i see that the the LL120s have that big black plastic X in the middle of the fan on one side and the LEd ring is only on one side as well.. bit disappointed in that since that means i can use them for blowing air out of case only to get the full RGB. im hoping the ML's dont have that so i can use them for intake. my hope was to use all LL's so it looks uniform. but i cant have all fans as blow air out only.
