Corsair LL fans with iCUE COMMANDER CORE XT

Hello everyone, 

 

I'm having a bit of trouble here with corsairs RGB controllers and it is super confusing to me! I've read that for LL series of fans, you NEED the Lighting Node Pro which makes zero sense to me so I am not sure if that is true or not!. Following someone else's problem, I have created a diagram. They use the commander pro with different fans and I would like to use the CORE XT with LL120 and LL140 fans.

I currently only have three RGB fans connected using the NODE PRO and the RGB fan controller which came with the case.

Corsair doesn't seem to make one with more headers for both power and RGB. My case can have up to 8 fans. I'm planning to leave the back fan as a normal black one anyway.

Would someone be able to tell me if this config would work or what I would need to make this work please? :)

All Corsair RGB fans work with all Corsair RGB controllers. They are not limited to the one that came in the box. You can use LL on the Commander Core XT and it’s a direct RGB connection. 
 

Your real issue is the 7th fan. There are some 3rd party RGB splitters out there, but this will twin the fan with its splitter mate. Ok for stationary colors and patterns, but problematic for dynamic sequential effects. Otherwise you need a second controller. If you have a RGB lighting hub from somewhere, the picture works. You’ll need to choose how to split them (6+1, 4+3, etc). Each group is independent of each other, so effects will run for the group, not 1-7.

Thanks buddy, I'll give the 4 + 3 a go and or play around with it abit. Slowly getting more of an understanding with all of this. Still very confusing. Thank god I'm not using something like the 1000D... would be painful haha. Thanks very much mate.

Forgot to mention you are fine to use a PWM splitter to pair two of the fans for speed control.  That part is an easy solution, but make sure you stick to 2 way PWM splitters.  The three way (or more) get close to amp limit and often bring control issues into play.

Hız kontrolü için iki fanı eşleştirmek için bir PWM ayırıcı kullanmanın iyi olduğunu söylemeyi unuttum. Bu kısım kolay bir çözüm, ancak 2 yollu PWM ayırıcılara bağlı kaldığınızdan emin olun. Üç yol (veya daha fazlası) amfi sınırına yaklaşır ve genellikle kontrol sorunlarını devreye sokar.  

hello bro. Sir, I have 6 LL Series fans.and I have iCUE COMMANDER CORE XT in my new case.(corsair 7000 x). I knew how to stop my fans at 0 rpm with Commander Pro.but I can't do this in Commander Core XT.I can't make my LL series fans 0 rpm. I can't stop completely. What do you think could be the reason?
