Hello everyone,

 

1 year ago started to build my new rig, and choosed to complete all possible parts with Corsair’s brand tool, because I really love the quality and enjoy the Icue software.

 

Now I’m replacing my 220T case with new 5000D airflow and got some doubt about fan configuration and rgblink.

 

PC CONFIGURATION:

 

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600

GPU: Asus TUF 3070 OC

MB: Asus TUF X570 Plus Wifi

RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB 3600 2 x 8gb

NVME: Sabrent PciE Gen.4 500mb

PowSup: Sharkoon 750w (I know, corsair was better but recycled one from other pc   J )

CASE: Corsair 5000D airflow black

AIO: Corsair H100i RGB PRO XT

FAN: 9 x Corsair SP120 RGB PRO

 

PERIPHERALS:

 

Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 low profile

Corsair MM800 mouse pad

Corsair Scimitar PRO RGB

Corsair ST100 RGB stand

Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless black

Monitor 1: MSI Optix MPG341CQR 34”

Monitor 2: Samsung Odyssey G5 27”

 

 

 

 

SETUP:

1)    AIRFLOW:

 

Not sure about fan configuration, but after a look to all posts around I will proceed with the following configuration:

  AIRFLOW.jpg.88b8a415a20097a53b6159ae91133d5e.jpg

 Is this configuration good or something wrong?  Is 6 x intake and 3 x exhaust.

May I need to replace the AIO with a 360 radiator?

 

 

 2)    RGB CONFIGURATION

 

Got 9 x SP120 RGB PRO to link + AIO Pump from H100i RGB PRO XT. For RGB controls with ICUE have 2 x Lightning node  and 1 Commander Pro.

Is this correct? With Icue I will control all the fun separately ?

 

 

 3)    FUN POWER CONFIGURATION

 

 ALI.jpg.c6fd1e7d733d8f36f49a16b31bc32509.jpg

 

 

 

Is this good?

I don’t remember if the head pump need only USB or need to be connected as other fan……

 

 I’ll really appreciate you answer and your help!

The SP120 Pro RGB fans come with the Lighting Node Core, not the RGB Fan LED Hub. Your diagrams are assuming the Fan Hub. These are different devices. The LNC connects via USB, not to the Lighting Channel on the Commander Pro.

Also, the SP120 PRO RGB fans are DC-controlled fans, not PWM fans. So while you can connect them to the PWM repeater, they will run at full speed.

And it's typically recommended that you connect the fans for the cooler to the cooler. However, again, the SP-PRO fans are DC-controlled fans and you can only control PWM fans with the cooler.

Thank you for reply. So basically i need to change all the fan to get a better control of them on Icue software.

Don't want to control them on Bios...

Which fans you recommend in PWM mode for my setup?

The Commander Pro will control DC fans - that will work. But yeah - you'd be better off with PWM.

You have a lot of options in the Corsair lineup. Of the RGB fans, only the SP-PRO and SP-RGB (older, original ones) are DC fans. Everything else - even the SP-Elite - are all PWM.

The LL120s have a single loop on one side and 16 LEDs. The QL120s have a loop on each side and 34 LEDs.

The SP-Elite are going to be the same as your SP-PRO from an RGB standpoint (8-LED Fan Series).
