Need help setting up H150i Elite Capellix


Recommended Posts

Hey! It's been a while since ive built a PC and I'm in a bit of a pickle currently, I was wondering what is the right way to wire the H150i? I also would like to know how to make 7 fans work with the setup I have. 3 SP120mm RGB are mounted to the front, 3 of the same fans on the radiator which I'd like to top mount, and one on the back for exhaust. I need a way to connect all fans and sync them but currently I'm stumped at how I'm able to sync all the fans with the Commander Core that comes with the H150i. It only has 6 slots on both sides for power and rgb. Currently at work but hoping I can get some answers how to properly wire everything with this setup. I can also supply pictures if needed at when I have more time. Hope you can help and thanks in advance!

You need to be very exact in your fan description for this.  The SP-RGB are an older 3 pin DC with 4 LEDs.  They will not work with the Commander Core fan controller on the Elite AIO.  The SP-Pro have 8 LEDs, but have the same DC motor issue for control.  Only the SP-Elite (8 LED and PWM) will work for this application.

If I did my research right I bought the 5000X RGB which comes with 3 SP120 RGB Elites. I bought an extra SP120 RGB Elite for the back. The H150i comes with 3 ML120 RGB fans. I'm really hoping this setup doesn't cause issues for me lol. Also I apologize for not being super specific it's my first time reaching out like this but I'm getting desperate to fit my PC back. Hopefully these screenshots can give you a better idea of what I'm working with. If I missed anything let me know and I'll try my best to get back asap.

You'll need two splitters - 1 for PWM (easy to find) and 1 for the Corsair RGB. You'll be able to put all 7 fans on the Commander Core without issue. And the ML fans that ship with the cooler will match (from an RGB perspective) the SP-Elite fans that come with the case.

Okay phew that's a big relief! If possible could you direct me to the exact parts I need I'll express order them asap. I'll definitely keep tabs when I get those in and can figure my wiring out.

You should already have everything you need as the 5000X ships with both a 6 port PWM hub and a 6 port Lighting Node Core.

Yeah I know that. However I added an extra fan to the back of the case that could not fit with only 6 slots. Bought splitters for the rgb and pwm connections and put 2 fans on one connection each.
