I only have one LL140... what RGB controllers do I need?


Recommended Posts

Hey there,
I recently built a new machine (been in the PC space for about 8 years, but never built my own machine) and in that order I bought a single LL140 because, primarly, it was on sale, but also because of its RGB. 
I didn't do any research, and assumed I'd be able to use an RGB header on my MB. I was wrong. Fair enough, but I was wondering if I need to buy both the Commander Pro and the controller for one fan, or if just the Commander Pro is sufficent for one fan?

you need the commander pro only if you want to also control its speed with iCUE. otherwise you only need a RGB controller.

A commander Core would be enough and create less clutter than a lighting node pro + RGB hub.


you can simply connect the fan to the motherboard ARGB with this https://www.ebay.com/itm/373573060769 and control the RGB with the motherboard RGB software (it won't work with iCUE).

But if you later on add more corsair fans, then you can invest in a controller too and get iCUE RGB control..
