Introducing the CORSAIR iCUE COMMANDER CORE XT Smart RGB Lighting and Fan Speed Controller

Recommended Posts

  • Corsair Employees



Hey everyone,

We've got a new controller that centralizes command over your case fans and RGB lighting! We're happy to introduce to you the COMMANDER CORE XT. Here are a few highlights:

• Controls up to six PWM RGB fans, allowing you to set custom fan curves and lighting profiles that adjust based on system temperatures - including Zero RPM mode to keep the noise down at low loads.
• Intelligent fan detection simplifies the fan setup process, allowing iCUE to automatically identify the specific fan model connected to each RGB port.
• The updated, low-profile design makes installation easier with embedded magnets, making it easy to install the COMMANDER CORE XT on any flat surface inside your case

Check it out here for more information. We’ve put together a quick FAQ below. 

Q: What's the difference between the Commander CORE XT and the Commander PRO?
A: The COMMANDER CORE XT includes two repositionable temperature sensors (vs four), one 3-pin RGB header (vs. two), one USB 2.0 pass-through (vs. two). The COMMANDER CORE XT also eliminates the need for a RGB fan hub, as it sports six RGB fan ports.

Q: Do I need an RGB header on my motherboard to use this?
A: You do not. Similar to the Commander PRO, the COMMANDER CORE XT plugs into an available SATA power cable from your PSU and USB header on your motherboard.

Q: What about my LED strips? Do I still need to use the iCUE Lighting Node Pro RGB Lighting Controller?  
A: You'll be able to connect our 3-pin RGB devices directly to the Commander CORE XT's RGB port, eliminating the need for the Lighting Node Pro controller.

What are your thoughts? Got any system setup ideas already? Let us know in the comments!

Hello there, 

this seems to be nice, do you guys have been able to test it and face out if the Commander Core XT is having the same issue as the Commander PRO with AMD chipset motherboards?
