Yes, but you will need a separate lighting controller for the QL. The onboard one in the Platinum can’t do the 2x35 LEDs. If you have existing LNP/Commander Pro hardware, that will work. Otherwise you want QL140 twin pack with its own lighting controller. You may still want the twin pack if you are using other Corsair HD/ML/LL fans in the build since the QL need their own device channel to work properly.

hi, thanks for the answer.

i didn't buy the AIO yet. im buying my pc parts and im thinking of buying 1 twin pack of QL140 (so i get the controller). and then 4 QL140 fans

2 fans for the rad, 2 top fans and 2 bottom fans on corsair crystal 280x.

am i ok ? do i need to add anything else ?

OK, then the one Lighting Node Core in the twin pack can do the lighting for all 6 QL fans. You can buy singles or whatever is most cost effective for the rest.

 

However, I am a little concerned about the reality of an "all 140mm 280X" build. While certain panels can take 140mm fans, using some in one place may force you into 120mm choices elsewhere. I would prefer a 280X owner confirm or deny that premise.
