Corsair iCue/LL120s have a mind of their own? Lighting Node issue?


Recommended Posts

Hello!

I bought this PC from a friend who custom built it, and has built many before that. This only makes it harder for me as I have not done too much work with Corsair and this isn't exactly the simplest setup. It has a total of 8 Corsair LL 120 fans, 1 commander pro and 2 lighting hubs. 6 of the fans are connected to hub 1, and 2 fans are connected to hub 2. LED 1 on the commander leads to hub 1 and LED 2 leads to hub 2 as far as RGB goes. When I start up my pc, the lights seem to work just fine, on occasion I can game for hours and have not a single issue. Other times, I will go to iCue and reset all the fans and they will work for 5 seconds and then bug out and do whatever they want. This only seems to pertain to the fans on lighting hub 1. My issue being, sometimes they work fine for days or even weeks at a time, other times they don't work for 5 seconds. Sometimes they flicker, sometimes they freeze, sometimes a couple work and a few don't, they just have a mind of their own. Does anyone have similar experience and could help me trouble shoot this? It would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure none of the RGB connectors from the fans going into the hub are loose going into the hub, and that the connector for the cable from the hub to the LED channel is not loose. Also make sure no wires are pinched by any case panels. If it is still happening then it is likely a single defective fan causing the error. Judging by the video it is either going to be the fan that continues to do the effect, or the one directly after it in the hub. You can test that by swapping the fans suspected of being defective to the very end of the hub and see if the issues persists with the other fans.

Thank you for the reply! As of right now, all fans are working fine and have been for multiple hours, so the confusion just keeps getting deeper XD I need to switch cases at some point so that may give me a chance for a fresh start to try these things. Thank you!
