Corsair Xd5 rgb


Recommended Posts

Hi guys quick question I have commander pro, now on the rgb channels which there are 2, I have 2 rgb hubs connected, I have 6 fans connected one 1 and 4 connected on the other so I have 2 channels to use on the second rgb hub

 

Can I plug the rgb cable coming off the xd5 pump/res combo say in to number 5 channel on the second hub ??

 

I understand I have to plug the pwm cable coming from the pump goes in to number 6 on commander pro, I have purchased a y splitter to run 2 fans off 1, so that I will free up number 6 channel, temp sensor goes in to number 1 sensor channel

 

The 3 front ll140 will be run by motherboard and back fan, and the 6 rad fans will be powered by Corsair icue, all in all it’s coming together nicely

You are going to need another controller. The XD5/CPU/GPU block chain connects to a RGB channel directly on the Commander - not the hub used to power the fans. Do you have any Lighting Node Pro controllers around from the LL fan packs?

 

You might also consider using a cheap powered PWM hub to offload some of the fan motor current on the PWM side of the Commander. That would use 1 fan header and all of them would run the same speed, but that is a non-issue for radiators or the three front fans. That would allow you control over all fans from within CUE at the desktop level.

Put the XD5 on the Lighting Node Pro RGB channel. You will not need a RGB Lighting Hub for it. Keep the fans together or Ch 1 and 2 of the Commander. It makes it easier for copying lighting patterns across all 10 and general management.

 

That’s what I was thinking as well, I thought the node pro’s had to be connected to the commander in some way but they don’t, I watched a you tube video they are just connected via usb2 on motherboard and sata connection, thanks for your time and information you have been a great help, rgb is a minefield ha ha so many wires involved
