Corsair fan connectors do not fit into Corsair fan HUB

Go to solution Solved by BlaiseP,

Recommended Posts

I Just completed building a new desktop based on a Corsair 4000 D Airflow midi-tower.   I installed 3 Corsair AF 120 LED Blue casefans at the front, but since the motherboard does not have sufficient casefan connections, I bought a Corsair fan hub (Corsair code: 8950020).

To my surprise, the connectors of the fans do not fit in the the fan-hub! (the connector is too high )

All Corsair products, but they are  not compatible ?? How strange is that ?

What is the solution?

@PaulusP - the hub you posted is for RGB connectivity, not to run the fan itself. It sounds like all you need is a basic fan hub (any of the Commander Pro family would be overkill). All you need is a powered fan hub that you can connect to a fan header on the motherboard and then plug the fans into like this one

That is a 3-pin DC connector for the fan motor and is not intended to plug into the RGB Fan LED Hub. That connector plugs into any fan header on your motherboard, or a compatible fan controller.
