Hi, So I recently built a new pc and I have 9 QL 120 fans connected to a corsair commander pro and I have the two lighting node cores provided plugged into the 2 internal usb slots on the commander, but when I go on icue I seem to be having problems changing the rgb colors of my fans.

 

For example when I set that the fans are connected and I try to make a lighting channel it doesn't respond can someone please help me ? Screenshots are provided below. Thank you:biggrin:

Those channels are on the Commander Pro, not the Lighting Node Core. The Lighting Node Cores will show up separately from the Commander Pro and it doesn't look like iCUE is seeing them.

Make sure that the USB connectors are on the CoPro straight. I cannot even begin to tell you how incredibly, amazingly, super easy it is to have them off by one pin.

What do you mean if they're straight, are you saying that not all the pins on the usb header from the lighting node are plugged in ?

From the screen shots, I can tell that the Lighting Node Cores aren't being picked up by iCUE. They will be separate devices from the Commander Pro; you won't configure them on the CoPro's lighting channels. That's what you are trying to do and that's why it isn't working; the QL fans aren't on those channels. They are on the LNC's.

Now .. the next question is why they aren't being picked up. One possible reason is that you have the USB headers plugged in at an offset. So yes, they wouldn't all be plugged in. This is super-easy to do on the CoPro and happens quite often.

hi i tried flipping the usb ports from the lighting node and tried again, it still doesn't detect them

I was just planning to buy an nzxt external usb hub and try connecting the cpro and nodes to that instead, would that work ?

Quite possibly. Lots of us use the NZXT hub.
