Where do I plug in the fans on the 4000x iCue case?


Recommended Posts

Just got the case, have just about all m parts installed and trying to see where I plug in the fans. I see all 3 of the fans are plugged into a hub in the case, but where does that plug into the motherboard?

 

Does it plug into any Fan connector? or does it need to plug into an RGB or ARGB connector on the motherboard? or both? I have an MSI z490 Gaming Edge motherboard if that helps.

The 4000X comes with a Lightning Node Core as standard; this controls your fan lighting through iCUE and plugs in via a standard motherboard USB header and a SATA power connection.

 

The fans will need to plugged into the 4-pin headers on your motherboard for power.

I realize this post is from a while ago, however I just purchased this case and am curious as to where the Node Core is connected.  I figured out the power.  A USB port does this.  However the RGB connector on the Node Core is not standard and there is nothing like it on my Asus Prime motherboard.  Any suggestions??  I would like to add the included fans to my RGB setup.

 

Thanks!

Power for the Lighting Node Core is the SATA connector. The usb 2 cable is for communication with the CUE software. 
 

You do not connect any aspect of your Corsair RGB hardware to the motherboard RGB connectors. The Lighting Node Core is an RGB controller and the Corsair gear is a standalone system.

I know that there are already some Corsair videos on YouTube, but some new ones or updated versions would be nice. A video showing and explaining each of the RGB controllers with their cable routing would be great. I use Corsair products routinely.
