Need help setting up a 1000D build with 12 fans.


Recommended Posts


I need some advice please. My build includes the below and I would like to know what's the best way to wire up the fans. 

- 1000D case which comes with a commander Pro. 

- 8x 120 QL fans. Front of case. 

- 1x 140 QL fan. Rear of case (tried to fit two but they don't fit). 

- H170i ELITE CAPELLIX Liquid CPU Cooler, which comes with 3x ML140 fans. This comes with 1x commander core I believe. 

- I also have two lightning node cores and two 4 pin to 3 pin fan splitters from cool master. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What would be - IMHO - ideal would be to use 2x RGB Fan LED Hubs and a hub splitter for the QLs in front and connect them to the 1000D's included Commander Pro. This would give you 2 groups of perfectly synchronized sets of 4 QL fans - which you can orient left/right or top/bottom. But the Fan Hub was discontinued and they are getting harder to find.

Which leaves us with the Lighting Node Cores. You can fill one up with 6 QL and connect the rest to the Commander Core. But you'd probably be best to use 2 LNC's for the front (from a control perspective). The discontinuation of the Fan Hub makes it more difficult but no one seems to care much about this.
