I have checked this out : https://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=173880

and haven't found quite what I needed,

 

I'm looking for a diagram to connect my H100i Platinum AIO along with the Lighting node pro with 6 rgb strips and 2 LL120 fans. I am getting the LL120 three fan kit that comes with the lighting node and the fan Hub. I also have a commander pro.

 

My AIO is set up in the stock configuration plugged into the CPU fan header, I would rather not have to change that. I also have the Lighting node pro and the rgb strips connected to another USB header on my motherboard and the six RGB strips connected to channel 2.

 

Basically all I am needing to do is add the two LL120 fans to my configuration. I'm just waiting for them to arrive in the post.

 

Any help, or a point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Cheers !

1) What to do with the two Platinum radiator fans likely depends on whether you have the Black standard Platinum with two ML-RGB fans or the white SE with 2 white LL fans. If the black with ML, you may want to leave the RGB connectors with the Plat. Mixing LL and ML together makes fan lighting more complicated and non-uniform. You can only designate 1 fan type per controller. You can't tell it 16 + 16 + 4 + 4. You also get perceptual differences in speed with a given effect taking 4 times as long to pass through a 16 LED fan as a 4 LED fan.

 

If you have the white SE with LL fans, they can all be grouped together on the new controller to work as a 4 fan series.

 

 

2) Since you need the Commander Pro for fan control and it has 2 RGB channels as well, you won't need the Lighting Node Pro. Save it. It may have use later. C-Pro RGB channel 1 will get the RGB fan hub with the LL fans. RGB Ch 2 will get the strips. Regardless of whether you have the black or white Platinum, the radiator fans' PWM wires should stay on the AIO fan controller. This keeps them on task at all times when the software is not running (boot, shutdown, BIOS, etc). The Commander Pro cannot read the Platinum's coolant temperature if the software is not passing the data between those separate devices.

 

3) There is no need to change the H100i Platinum. It's tachometer wire can stay on CPU_FAN.
