  1. Bloody hell.. I thought I was having problem. Just so you are aware and it might help, you can run more than one Lighting Hub off of the LED channels on Commander Pro. The control wire that leads from the Hub to the LED Channel just solder the four wires in 2 pairs and crimp the female PCB connection terminal. .Obviously you must make sure that you pair up the correct two wires. The black wire with grey/white line is the furthest from the arrow on the connection housing , but don't tell any one I told you. xl...out
  2. And now its going up for sale....because I'm going to build the same sort of build with a glass case but I'm going to fabricate the metal work myself ..out of Aluminium. My mate has a guillotine and a fly press, I'm looking forward to the project tbh. I can design my own case in my workshop. Its going to have a double skin base and most of the middle wall cut away so you can see right through it. All the cabling will be run between the double skin in the base and side uprights. Its going to have a Z370 MB, with a Coffee Lake CPU. HD140 RGB fans to the front and top and completely AIO Cooling. I'm going to tie it all in so ALL the RGB runs off one piece of software. Its going to be the daddy of all PC'S xl...out
  3. Like all good stories there has to be a happy ending... Not only does it look pretty it bites as well- BF1 all graphic settings on very high and resolution 4K 3840 X 2160. GPU temp does not go over 67 degrees. GPU fan doesn't kick in till 55 degrees and runs at 120 FPS solid. Bit disappointed about the cables tbh, for what they cost me they should really pop, but more of a fizzle... Everything up a running fine, its been flat out for 6 hours and still purres like a kitten. Also surprisingly quite considering all the air that's being moved about by those 12 fans that are in there :) http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/320x240q90/924/9NFz34.jpg http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/320x240q90/924/4kFwa2.jpg http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/320x240q90/923/XjjrFe.jpg http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/320x240q90/923/2pk6Sl.jpg http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/320x240q90/923/2pk6Sl.jpg http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/320x240q90/922/paAGqY.jpg http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/320x240q90/923/2pk6Sl.jpg http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/320x240q90/924/n24mKt.jpg http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/320x240q90/924/IRJBwX.jpg xl...out
  4. I realise that I may have been a little quick on the draw and probably jumping to the wrong conclusions regarding the whole Commander Pro /Lighting Node Pro (I wont use the word argument), lets say it was a heated discussion ? I went off at Dustin, that was uncalled for and I apologise not knowing the full facts. I have now been informed that a third party wrote the software for the Commander Pro and Lighting Node, Dustin has been put in charge of sorting out someone else's shoddy workmanship and put himself in the firing line, my hat is off to you mate. I would also like to thank whoever it was that passed my feelings on to Corsair about the faulty Commander Pros I have had.... in the post this morning I received a brand new Commander Pro Direct from Corsair. There not a bad bunch of chaps after all. :laughing::laughing: xl......out
  5. I have used 4 Commander Pros; 2 have been returned, I borrowed 1 from a friend and I have a new CP fitted. I have used 3 different lighting hubs and about a week of my life trying to figure this problem out. I do not know “code” or how to diagnose a computer problem.. The PC is running fine so I’ll leave it alone... until I get bored and start adding to it again :biggrin::biggrin: Xl...out
  6. Update: The Commander Pro and the Lighting Node Pro turned up from Scan, when I opened the boxes the one of the lighting strips have been folded in half to fit in the box and it had been folded right on the acrylic Corsair logo thus nearly tearing it in half.. I contacted Scan FOR RMA so the Lighting Node went back....The Commander Pro it would seem was fine. I connected it all up with lighting hub, only 2 fans were working, Channels 1 & 2. So I tried my second lighting Hub in COM Pro LED Channel 2... Once again on 2 channels working on the Hub ???? So I tried the 3rd lighting hub that I have and that to would only have power on channels 1 & 2... 3 hubs all only working on channels 1 & 2 ??? I couldn't be bothered to send the Commander Pro back so I crimped another 2 wires in to connector for channel 2 on Com Pro and had 2 Hubs working off channel 2 and 1 hub working off channel 1. So its all good. I have all 6 HD120 RGB working lovely .. xl...out
  7. Isn't that going to cause a problem with the filter screen ? Are you trying to put the buttons on the other side or turn them 180 and have them on the other side at the rear ?? xl...out
  8. Damn I didn't know they made them !! that would have sorted out all my problems last week...
  9. That Gainward GPU cover is a poxy colour, that's coming off for a respray this week, its going to be bright red to match the red in the cabling (if it ever gets here )
  10. Both Tickets received an Automated Response the following day, saying a member of Corsair staff would be in contact with me within 48 hours. Its too late now it has gone back to Scan for refund...but thanks for taking the trouble to look at my case. Much appreciated. ;) xl....out
  11. Hi Guys- Here's a few snaps of PC i have just (nearly) finished. Just waiting on CustomCables from the States Specs - Corsair 570X Tempered glass case.. i7-7700K CPU Asus X270E Gaming M/B G.Skillls Trident Z RAM RGB 16 GB 3600MHz Gainward GTX 1080 Ti Phoenix Golden Sample HX 750 W Platinum PSU Fractal Design S36 AIO CPU Cooling System Samsung 250GB EVO PCI eXP SSD Toshiba N300 4TB NAS HD 4K 28 inch WS Monitor 6 x Corsair HD120 RGB fans 3 x Fractal Design Super Quite fans 1 Commander Pro 3 (Yes 3) Corsair Lighting Hubs 1 Lighting Node Pro (Damaged sent back replaced today) I really enjoyed the build, did a lot of messing about with case. Even more messing about with lights and fans. Just need to spend a little time to get MB, fans and GPU to all sync in same colour :) Here's a few snaps.. Enjoy :) Time for bed. I'll put some more up later. xl...out
  12. I can soon fit another name plate in there Zotty, that's mechanical not electrical, I'm fine with the mechanical stuff :) xl...out
  13. Dustin.... Having been called in to sort this lot out, I hope they are paying you well if not THEY SHOULD BE !!!
  14. My apologise for not getting your name correct, that's the age and the eye sight. OK.. everything being said its time to sort out my Fan problems (Hopefully) Does the Lighting Node Pro suffer from the same problems as the Lighting Hub and the Commander Pro ? I have a new Commander Pro and Lighting Node coming today. Should I update any of the firmware on either or just leave then be ? Also what version of Link do you recomend I should use to run fans and now lighting strips ? Should I d/l Link and then fit hardware or hardware first then d/l Link ?? Is there any order to connect up Commander Pro, Lighting Node, Fans, LED strips. in that order. USB TO MB then SATA power leads. OR just connect it all up and flick the switch ??? lol Thanks Deane
  15. Is the guy your talking about Red ray by any chance ? I have been reading loads of his posts... the man's a super geek, instead of banning him from what I can read they should employ him. I am majorly disappointed with Corsair products and there software tbh. I always thought they were a solid company with good backup. Christ they charge enough, there gear isn't cheap and some of it is of outstanding quality, but the support is shocking. I cant even get a reply to my post or the ticket I put in..... I feel now I am going to find another solution to my cooling and lighting. Corsair you have let yourself down BADLY.. Deane
  16. You know Speedy, I think you are correct. They are trying to blame complete failure of RGB lighting system on a dodgy LED.. I am seriously thinking about pulling this lot out and sending it back to Scan and getting my money back. The amount of Hardware I have stopped out and I’m still having problems it HAS to be a software issue...
  17. My fans now show up in CL as lighting strips.. this is getting worse !!
  18. Justin ? Is your title correct ? Your the Product Manager for Corsair Link software ? Were you in charge of overseeing how this software was written and you obviously had to sign it off to say its all good ? Do you oversee the updates and the Firmware as well ??
  19. I hear what your saying Justin I really do, but yesterday morning I only had 1 fan working (Spinning+LED) that was on channel 1. So I de-rigged all the fans and tried the other 5 fans through the Commander Pro and Light hub all on channel 1 and every single one of them worked fine, I am very thorough to the point of OCD... I personalty do not think its the fans. The only common denominator is the software. I have used every single piece of Corsair Link software you have all the way from 4.0.077 to 49057. I have used a very good 3rd party uninstaller to completely clean the previous Corsair Link from my machine then I have rebooted, re-scanned and then installed the next version. I still have exactly the same problem that I started with. I have used 3 light hubs, 2 Commander Pro. I have in total 15 fans (only 6 in machine) I have ordered from Scan a brand new Commander Pro and I have also ordered a Light Node Pro to see if I can cure this problem another way... Any advice from the people who designed and made these items very much appreciated.. Im just one of the mugs that buys and installs them. BTW. I have a top spec £3400 machine sitting there that I cant use because of some dodgy £50 piece of.......bought from Corsair. I asked for an RMA number yesterday morning and I'm still waiting for a reply from Customer support... Thanks Deane
  20. I don't get this, I have stripped out the Com Pro & Lighting Hub. I have rechecked all of my fan and LED cables and connection terminals they are all A1. Then I went to a mates house and borrowed his Com Pro. Fitted it into my machine and exactly the same thing happened, the fans spin fine no problem, you can even adjust them using BIOS. The only fan to show any LED's is bottom front (No 1). Already tried 3 LED hubs today and problem persists so its not the hub. I have disconnected Com Pro from power and reset it, I have rolled back the Firmware, updated all my drivers, made sure there isn't anything running that may be in conflict. and It still doesn't light up the other 5 fans.. Tomorrow I am going out to get a Light Node and set it up and run fans back to Com Pro using that. If that doesn't work its all going to be RMA'd. Getting a bit fed up now ...I never have this problem with Logitech stuff !!! xl...out
  21. Hi Justin, Thanks for getting back to me, I was under the impression that the Com Pro took charge of fan speed and Light node/hub looked after the LED's ?? My fan spin OK power up they go faster power down they slow. Its the LED's that Im having problems with ?? And Im 90% sure its Link software that's buggy.... Thanks xl
  22. No sorry mate I don’t, but I uninstalled Corsair Link with a 3rd party uninstaller and managed to get 5 of my 6 fans running with RGB flowing out everywhere. I reinstalled Link and guess what ?.. They have all disappeared again. No sleep last night..I’m getting bloody annoyed with these goods. I have a good mind to RMA the bloody lot. Commander Pro, 7 HD120RGB fans, the PSU even the Case can go back !!!
  23. As for Downgrading the CL4 I have I took it back to a time before it had HD120 RGB on the list and had to bring it forward so it picked up the HD 120 RGBs... That didnt do the trick either....
  24. The LED hasnt lit up all night, thats how long of been working on the bloody thing. OK Zotty.. this is your fav topic. Corsair 570 X, HX750W Platinium PSU, Asus Stix Z270E Gaming motherboard, 500g M.2, 4TB HHD, i7-7700K, Fractal design S36 Im am using 6 HD 120 RGB fans, All 2 a pair of 4 core ribbon cable, 1 Cable has a Lockable SL Connector terminal. All 6 of those cables I have fed down to Corsair LED Light Hub. The other 4 core ribbon cable from 6 fans got to Commander Pro into Fan Headers No 1-6, which is in the same sequence as the cables going to Led Light Hub. All items in this build are brand new. One cable form the Light Hub has its own designated Sata power lead straight from PSU, the other cable goes to Com pro Led channel 1. 2 cables coming from top of Com Pro, 1 goes to Sata power, (I know this is live because its same cable that powers my HHD. The other cable goes to USB 3.0 on header at bottom of motherboard. 4 Temp senses on headers going to various points in case. Corsair Link is running and it picks up all 6 fans and according to Link they are flashing away like mad...only there not there dead.. The fan front bottom (No 1) is the only fan working.. I take it in turns to run all my fans through channel 1 just tpo ensure they are all working, which they are. I have 2 spare Lighting Hubs so I wire each one in a test. Still only fan No 1 working on all 3 light hub tests ?? Com Pro has a LED thats not made a flash for the past 8 hours. The New build starts ok runs like a dream Fans are running well although some are running faster than others (even next to each other. Any Ideas mate ???
  25. Hi Gents a little help here please.. Im just finishing off my new build. Im using a 570X case and I have fitted 6 HD120 RGB fans. All the cables and wires going to all the right places.. I started her up about an hour ago, everything started fine,all the fans were spining, some faster than others I might add but the LEDs on the fans were dead.. I opened Corsair Link I could see the fans but they were spinning at different RPMs and very erratic. I thought it may have been the Lighting Node/Hub so I swopped it out with a spare that I bought with the fans, I then noticed that the Commander Pro has a LED by the temp connectors it wasnt alight.. I checked all the connectors. There is definatly power getting to the CP because it coming from the same power cable that goes to the HHD. I read on this forum something about a firmware roll back is that what I have to do to get this bloody thing working ?? Its 4.00 in the morning I have been putting this machine together all night and the CP lets me down.. Any help appreciated. Thanks xldeane
