Commander Core Firmware Update - still planned for January

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


first post here - be nice! I've got my build ready to go, using the Elite Capellix H150i. Whilst doing my research I came across this reddit thread:


and have got a snippet of a mention from the cooling product manager saying planning a firmware update for the commander core to enable per port LED control and mixing / matching fans. Do we know or does anyone know whether this is still in the works?


As well as the H150i I have got 3 x QL120 fans, and my plan is to hook them all up to the Commander Core - which will work, but it will treat as all fans having the highest amount of LEDs (so my ML120 that only have 8 will have "34"). I guess this will look fine on stationary colours and things like that but dynamic patterns may look a bit funky.


I wanted to use the QL120 fans on the radiator (as i'm setting them up front mounted in a pull configuration) for better RGB and then the ML120 as exhaust attached to the case... That should work right?


If push comes to shove, and It looks weird - am I correct in thinking I can just use the enclosed Lighting Node Core from the QL120fans to control the RGB for 1 set of fans, but leave all 6 fans still plugged into the core for PWM control?


Hopefully that makes sense... Attached a screenshot of the reddit comment!


Happy new Year!

Thread necro here. FYR this update will be coming later this month with the next iCUE update. 

Only took 9 more months than we had anticipated... Sorry. The release of iCUE 4 basically shoved this to the back of the queue and we weren't able to get to it until late summer. Excited to finally have this out in the wild though.

is this also for commander pro or only commander core? Senseful in every device, I think.


You won't be able to do the auto-detect on the Commander Pro - even if you can have multiple fan types (dunno).
