Will RGB effects cycle through fans across multiple RGB hubs?

Hello again :-)

 

If I have multiple RGB hubs connected will I be able to cycle through all fans in order across hubs?

 

If I have 6 fans one one hub and 6 on another hub am I able to instruct iCue to use let's say the infinity pattern and cycle through fans 1-12? Or am I limited to only cycling through the 6 fans on each RGB hub separately?

 

Thank you!

The preset lighting effects are limited to each controller/channel only. There are two effects in the Lighting Link global section that will traverse through the system (color wave and visor), but normal presets like Infinity will be limited to fans 1-6 and 6-12. It’s best to plan for that when setting up and figure out which fans you want to group together.

That's a little unfortunate, but I had a feeling it might work that way. I suppose with my case (Antec Torque) it might be best to plug the 6 fans on the inside of the radiators into one RGB hub and then plug the 6 fans on the outside of the radiators into a second RGB hub.

 

Hopefully Corsair will develop iCue software to allow users to group all fans and RGB devices connected to their PCs (within the Corsair ecosystem anyway) so we can run lighting effects across all of those connected devices in sequence. It would also be nice if they allowed users to pair selected RGB devices so two or more selected fans/devices can display the same RGB sequence at the same time.

 

Seems like it wouldn't be too difficult to develop, if they decide to make it a priority. It would probably go a long way toward getting users to expand their Corsair RGB ecosystem as well.

When you get into really large numbers of fans, the actual visual of a single light effect going from 1-12, 1-20, whatever become a bit underwhelming and the length of time to complete can be a bit long. A lot of how you use it will depend on the physical layout. With 12 fans (2 groups of 6), you are actually fortunate in being able to replicate the same pattern on 1-6 as 6-12. You can do a mirror the other controller or something else symmetrical. What's harder is when you have 7-8 fans and can't figure out to do with a left over.

 

It is possible for you program a custom wave that goes around with delays on each controller, but that takes a fair amount of experimentation to get the timing down. You likely have some limitations on what is visually available at any one time.
