iCUE Fans


Recommended Posts

I recently bought a Lian Li PC-O11DX 011 DYNAMIC case, 2 of the Corsair LL120 RGB Dual Light Loop 120mm Case Cooling Fan Kit with RGB Lighting totaling to 6 RGB fans, and a Corsair iCUE H150i ELITE CAPELLIX CPU Cooler with 3 ML120 RGB fans. With everything connected, iCUE recognizes the H150i ELITE CAPELLIX and the 3 ML120 fans, but not the 6 LL120 RGB fans. The 6 LL120's are connected to the corsair RGB fan hub. Fans 1-3 are connected to SYS_FAN2, SYS_FAN3, and SYS_FAN4 on the motherboard and fans 4-6 are connected to the fan ports 4-6 on the COMMANDER CORE that was provided with the H150i. The fan hub is connected to the Lighting Node Pro and the Lighting Node pro is connected to JUSB1 2.0 connector on the motherboard. The three ML120 fans are connected directly to the COMMANDER CORE ports 1-3 on both sides which is the RGB hub and fans. The COMMANDER CORE is connected to JUSB2 2.0 connector on the motherboard. ALL 9 fans are on and spinning. Can someone help me to get the iCUE software to recognize the 6 LL120 RGB fans. Thank you.

The 6 LL will be on the LNP device in CUE, not the Commander Core. Does it show in CUE? You must then do the lighting set-up for that RGB channel "LL fans x 6" to generate the UI and correct number of LEDs.

 

If does not show in CUE, check your Device Manager for errors in the USB section.

The LNP does not show up on iCUE. I attached a screen shot of my iCUE. Shouldn't the COMMANDER CORE also show up iCUE? I've check my device manager, but how can you tell if there's an error?

When the wide special connector from the OLED pump is connected to the Commander Core, it show as the pump face in CUE. The 6 fan PWM and RGB controls are in there. If were not using the pump/cooler and connected the Com Core as a standalone device, it would then show as "Commander Core" with a picture of the main controller body.

 

If the Lighting Node Pro has power (SATA) and it is connected to the MB via USB, then it should show in CUE. Doesn't matter what fans are connected or anything else in the CUE system. A device manager error would be a yellow triangle and it would expand automatically to show it. Hard to miss. Try connecting the LNP to the USB 2 port where the Commander Core is connected. That may help identify is there is a port problem or a device problem.

With the device manager open I do not see a yellow triangle next to any of the devices listed. I swapped the two USB 2 connectors on the motherboard and the result remained the same. The iCUE still recognizes the H150i in the different port, but not the LNP most likely indicating the motherboard is good right? Since I bought two of the triple pack, I swapped out the LNP that came with the other set, but the result remained the same. I read somewhere that enabling the XHCI Handoff in the bios menu might work, but it didn't.

Not sure what is happening. Some devices have difficulty on certain motherboards. The Z370 is not one of them and neither is the LNP. The H150i is more common, yet that one works fine. If one is detected, then so should the other. It is also troubling that the other LNP did not work either. I would contact Corsair Support at this point.

 

The only other thing that comes to mind is if there was a problem on the SATA connector powering the LNP. No power, no recognition by the OS or CUE.

 

When CUE is not running and it drops into HW mode, do the LL fans light up?

I just switched the SATA connector between the LNP and the COMMANDER CORE and the H50i is still recognized by iCUE. When I completely close iCUE all fans remained on including the RGB lighting.
