Fan and controller setup

Go to solution Solved by c-attack,

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys I would like to know how to correctly setup my 6 QL fans + 3QL that I swap onto the h150i AIO. 
I have bought a Commander Cord XT and have the Commander Core included with the AIO. 

Are those 2Hubs enough to control the lightning AND the Pwm of the fans? 
Does the AIO + commander core control the pwm of the 3 attached QL’s? 
Can I seemlesly integrate the 3 AIO fans into iCue? 

Thanks for the help in advance.

If you want speed control of the other 3 fans, you will need to get them on a Corsair fan controller. Otherwise they will have to go to motherboard headers. 

The two options are to 1) buy a Commander XT which is the retail version of your Commander Core minus the AIO circuitry. That’s 6 more RGB and PWM ports and replaces the LNCore. Or 2) get an inexpensive PWM hub. This is a powered splitter on a small circuit board. One SATA connection for power. One PWM lead to the Commander Core. All fans on the hub will run the same speed but are controlled from the Commander Core fan port #. With 9 total fans, 4 will need to be on the PWM hub. In something like a O11 case you would put two banks of three all on the PWM hub depending on which are intake and exhaust. Many of the Corsair 5000/7000 cases have a PWM hub in the back for this purpose.
