You are not meant to plug that fan into the 5v or 12v rgb header on your motherboard.  The connector doesn't fit right for a reason.  


The Commander Core uses an auto-detect system to determine the number of LEDs on each RGB header.  With just one LL fan that is 16, but its possible for it to mis-read it on boot.  Go to the RGB Lighting Set-up in the Commander XT and re-run it.  You also have the option of manually setting it to LL fan x 1.  Then set a static white pattern to turn on all possible LEDs.  If it is listed as an LL fans, shows you a 12 LED ring with 4 LEDs in the center, and the fan is still half lit, you'll need to contact Corsair Support for a replacement or try and exchange it with the purchase vendor --- then only connect it to the Commander XT;s RGB ports.
