H150i Capellix 9 Fan O-11 Build Help

I just started a new build and first time user with RGB. I’m running a Lian Li O-11 Case with a H150i Capellix with 3 LL120’s on the radiator and on the side. The included ML120 fans are on the bottom of the case.

 

All 6 of the LL120’s RGB and Fans are plugged into the Commander Core(CoCo) that came with the AIO and the 3 ML120’s are plugged into the included RGB hub and lighting node that came with the LL‘s. The 3 ML fan connectors are also plugged into the MOBO.

 

The issue I’m having is maintaining the RGB to stay on, on the ML120’s. One fan is fully lit, second fan is 1/2 lit, and the third is completely off. I was fiddling with the wiring all day. Swapped all 6 of the LL120’s onto the RGB hub and the ML120’s onto the CoCo. I had full power in all 3 ML’s and only 1/6 LL120’s turned on. I eventually swapped the LED node with an extra from 3 pack and moved all the fans to their original positions as stated above. I was finally able to get everything to power on but once I downloaded iCue to change the colors of the fans, it reverted back to One lit, one half life, and one off with all 6 LL’s still on.

 

Here’s also a list of the parts in the build...

Any suggestions? 😅

Make sure both devices are properly configured for the fans on them. On the Lighting Node Pro, manually set this to "ML x 3" in the Lighting Set Up tab. The Commander Core automatically detects, but it takes a power cycle to force physical detection of the PWM wires or you need to run the auto-detect feature from the CUE settings panel.

 

These things work in series, so if you are still having trouble with the ML, connect them 1 at a time into port 1 on the RGB hub to check for lighting failure. If there is a bad spot at LED #2 on fan 1, then what comes after is usually dark or corrupted in some way.

I was about to try this right now and when I turned my PC on after disconnecting the fans off the Lighting Node on iCue. They RGB was on 2 fans slightly and I was about to kill the power. But when I went onto the software, the node was on “no device connected” already. So I hit the next one down “RGB LED strip” and all my fans turned on. When I swapped it to the ML fan selection they went back off and back on when I swapped back to the RGB strip.

 

Any ideas why that might be? Or should I just accept my win right now and stop messing with it? 😂

Make sure you have an active effect in the Lighting Effects tab. The effects are linked in the profile to the device type and it will remember different patterns for different fan types. If I change my type to QL and I have never made a pattern with QL before, the effects tab will be blank.

 

The Lighting Set-up is like setting up your building blocks. Fan type will set the LED# per unit. ML=4, SP-Pro/Elite=8, HD=12, LL=16, Strip=10. There are some unique presets for certain fan types, but this is mostly visual in the UI for knowing what LED goes to what fan. Aside from the above, I don't know why it would behave this way. You can also use Instant Lighting to quickly set everything to a color for troubleshooting purposes.
