Question for PC build

Quick question I am planning on buying a iCUE 465X RGB Mid-Tower ATX Smart Case and a H110i RGB Platinum SEv2 240mm AIO and a 120m LL120 RGB Fan for exhaust, seeing that the case comes with a Lightning node core and 3 included LL120 RGB fans at the front, will I be able to connect all 6 RGB fans with that to power and have them useable through Corsair's

ICUE software? Newbie here and have been researching and my head is spinning from all the different fan and case options.

Yes, you will be able to use the 6 port lighting controller that comes with the case. The H100i Platinum has it's own lighting controller for its two fans as well, but most people using the same series fan across the case will want them all together on one controller so the effects sequence easily and act as one set of fans for lighting purposes.

Oh perfect I didn't realize the AIO came with that, say I decided to go with the 570X RGB could I buy a Commander Pro or Lightning Node Pro to power the included 3 SP120 case fans at the front and a buy SP120 exhaust fan and connect to ICUE? Then the AIO uses it's own lighting controller to connect?

Yes, you could do that. The 4 SP-RGB would go into the RGB Lighting Hub from the case, then you need either LNP or C-Pro to connect with the software. The 570x still has the thumb remote. The white LL on Platinum SE will connect to the cooler's controller.

 

However, be aware the SP-RGB are kind of the odd duck in the family. They have been replaced by the 8 LED "Pro version" and have a decidedly different look to them than the LL. A lot people end up replacing them down the line. Since the initial outlay would be only 1 SP-RGB fan and you can use the LNP/Commander for the other fans, there isn't much loss to start off this way.

Ah I think I'm starting to understand, what do you mean by initial outlay? The 1 SP-RGB fan I would buy for the exhaust? I think that might be the option I go with as I really prefer the look of the 570x case. If I go that route I would be able to replace the 4 SP-RGB fans with 4 LL 120 fans later down the line and use the LNP and CPRO for then the total all 6 LL 120 fans (with the AIO) to control with Icue? I apologize if I'm being repetitive and I really appreciate your help.

The 570x comes with 3 SP120-RGB and you need the Commander or Node Pro for all fan types. So if you have a massive attack of LL jealously 1 month in and scrap them all for LL or QL or whatever, the only thing it costs you is 1 SP-RGB fan purchase. All the other stuff comes with the case or you would need if you bought 4 LL fans right now.

 

The only wrinkle to that is an LL120 three pack comes with the RGB Lighting Hub and Node Core. That would be an advantage if you only wanted the lighting. If you want fan speed control through the Commander then you have to get that separately anyway and included hardware in the multi-pack is not immediately useful.

I think I finally understand, that's the route I'm going to take, you're awesome dude thanks for the help!
