  1. Hey all. as stated above building new 5000X RGB, Asus Z690-F Mobo, iCUE H1501: Question: how to deal with Commander Core and the 5000X build in fan/rgb controllers. A little confused as to which controllers to use or do they connect and work together? Obviously the Commander Core is needed for AIO H150i,.....| Thanks in advance
  2. Just a few questions I have to ask would appreciate someone who has knowledge on this topic I have a commander core that came with my H150i Cappllix cooler. I’m using a Corsair 5000X case. I have 3 SP fans on the front panel 1 in the rear. And the ML’s default on the cooler. I have a ATX 24pin Lian li strimmer+. I want to somehow connect the strimmer to work with icue right now iM happy with how everything is set up and I know you need an adaptor to go from the Lian li controller to a led port from my research correct me if I’m wrong. Just want to know is there any way or an adaptor I can put into the commander core to link the Lian li strimmer+. If I can’t what would you recommended to do? And also is it possible to connect the lightning node pro and the commander core together? Cheers Dan
  3. I recently connected all of my fans to the Commander Core that came with my H100i Elite Capellix and none of my fan speeds are able to be controlled with iCue. I have 5 fans, 2 are not PWM so I don't expect those to be controlled however 2 of my fans are the RGB ML120s that came with the AIO and one is a SP120. The RGB ML120s lighting is able to be controlled and all fans are reporting rpms to iCue including the non PWM ones which inaccurately show 60k to 61k rpm. The RGB ML120s idle around 1200 rpm and do ramp up to about 2350 rpm under load with the SP120 one topping out at 2000 rpm no matter what fan setting I use. I have tried setting custom fan curves in iCue, removing all other monitoring software (HWinfo/CPU-ID) and checked that my BiOS is not controlling them. If anymore info is needed let me know.

None of the below items are compatible with the older Commander Mini and Lighting Node Products.. Do NOT attempt to mix the two product ranges. The Commander Mini and Lighting Node are now discontinued, You may get help for these items by asking in the Corsair Link Section 'Click Me' . 4 strip Limit in LINK and 6 Strip Limit in iCue . Commander Pro's can be Daisy chained. . Can have as many Commander Pro's and/or Lighting Node Pro's as you like. . You can NOT mix fan types on the Corsair RGB Fan LED Hub. . Corsair RGB fans have 2 Cables.. one for power/rpm control and one for RGB control . Fans must be plugged into the Corsair RGB Fan LED Hub in order, You must not miss ports out.. 3 fans? ports 1 to 3!. . Do Not Hot Swap Fans and Strips into the Commander Pro or Lighting Node Pro while Your system is powered up. . Fans & Strips must be added Into iCue/LINK in the Correct devices 'Lighting Setup' Tab. . Pro Strips will NOT work in the Corsair RGB Fan LED Hub and will result in a damaged Pro Strip should you attempt this. . RGB fans will NOT work plugged directly in to the Lighting Node Pro or Commander Pro, you MUST use the Corsair RGB Fan LED Hub which then Plugs into a Commander Pro or Lighting Node Pro . ML and LL multipack kits come with both the RGB Fan LED Hub & a Lighting Node Pro . . SP and HD Multipack Kits come the RGB Fan LED Hub & a Button controller. . SP/HD/ML RGB Fan's and Pro LED strips have Hardware playback, Meaning they will will continue to display Custom Profiles when iCue/LINK isn't Running. . LL RGB Fan's Have no Hardware Playback meaning they will not display Custom Profiles when iCue/LINK isn't running . Button Controllers, SP button Controller only operates the SP RGB Fans & the HD button Controller only operates the HD RGB Fans and are in NO way compatible with LL or ML RGB Fan's . If you have one bad fan (LED's) it could possibly effect the following fans on the RGB Fan LED Hub, Bad fan in port 1? fans on the following ports may not light up correctly. . Not Officially supported but there is no reason why you can not use Fan header Splitter cables on the Commander Pro (note there is a 1A limitation per fan header and a 4.5A limitation for the entire unit (including it's MCU and any Corsair RGB Strips you have attached) and I recommend no more than 2 Fans on any one Channel (note, seen plenty of issues when trying to use triple PWM splitters or more). . iCue/LINK Is also a Hardware Monitoring Program. It's not recommended you run other monitoring programs along side it. To do so risks Software Conflicts. . When encountering problems like coolers not being detected by iCue/LINK, it's worth heading to Device Manager/Universal Serial Bus Controllers and look for the Corsair USBXp driver, Even if it is present and enabled, disable/re-enable and see if that helps.

This can also apply to the Commander Pro. same procedure but different Firmware, Both Commander Pro and Node Pro Firmware can be found here . Need More USB Headers?. You could use the ones on the back of your case by routing a standard Mini Usb Cable out to it.. Or You could Try this Click Me . Corsair 570x Mirror Black RGB logo's are Connected as a Single SP RGB fan. they are Plugged into Port 4 of the supplied Corsair RGB Fan LED Hub along with the Supplied SP RGB Fans. You would need to Add a Lighting Node Pro or a Commander Pro for iCue/LINK control. Should you replace the stock SP RGB fans with other Corsair RGB fans you would need them on a Second RGB Fan LED Hub and you would need to Move the Logo's to port 1 of the RGB Fan LED hub it's connected to.

  5. Hi I am pretty new to PC building and this forum so I am sorry if this is the wrong place for this. I was wondering if this wiring setup would allow me to control all the fan speed / RGB lighting of the 7 fans. Thank you.
  6. I am running the following hardware; iCUE H150i ELITE CAPELLIX Liquid CPU Cooler CORSAIR iCUE COMMANDER CORE XT Smart RGB Lighting and Fan Speed Controller 10 x 120mm Corsair iCUE ML RGB ELITE Premium 1 x 60mm Noctua NF-A6x25 PWM Asus ROG MAXIMUS XII FORMULA Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB Lian Li O11 Dynamic EVO Corsair STRAFE RGB MK.2 Keyboard I have the fans setup like this. The Commander Core XT is plugged into the motherboard Th H150i is plugged into the passthrough of the Commander Core XT Fans 1-6 are on the Commander CORE Controller that came with the Capellix Fan 7-10 are on the COMMANDER CORE XT The Lian Li cases RGB is plugged into the RGB header on the motherboard Both the motherboard and Lian Li case are being controlled by iQUE How can I change the order of the Fans so they look proper in the case? Right now I'm just running Rainbow wave which looks ok but if I switch to something like Visor the sequence of the fans are all out of whack. I have posted a pic of where each fan is. Basically what I am trying to do is have the fans go in this order. 1, 2 & 5, CPU Cooler, 3 & 6, RAM, 4 & 7, 8 & 9 & 10, Front RGB on case itself, Key board Or atleast get the corsair fans going the right way even if I can't reorder the motherboard and case rgbs. Here's a video of what happens when I turn visor on. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  7. Liebe Community, Ich habe in meinem Setup einen Commander Core und einen Commander Core XT, wobei 6 Lüfter mit dem Commander Core schon vorher verbunden waren (Der Commander Core gehört zu meiner i170 elite capellix). Nun ist mein Commander Core XT angekommen, womit ich auch noch die restlichen Lüfter benutzen kann. Ich hab alle Lüfter nochmal umgesteckt, aber nun habe ich das komische Problem, dass einer von vier QL Lüftern überall leuchtet und nicht alle. Könnte mir da jmd. helfen? KingSchorschi
  8. Hello; I bought the Icue H100i Elite Capellix and it worked fine for few days. But suddenly, i lost control of it in the Icue app. It shows unknown device, even that it knows that it's a cooler, and it keeps working. When i force an update, it shows up for a second then disappears. I tried every possible solutions: Reinstalled driver Reinstalled ICUE Force firmware update Change USB port in the MB Reconnect all cables reinstalled the whole OS Deleted device Changed SATA cable and connected directly to the PSU … I had to contact Amazon and asked for an exchange, when i installed it, it worked fine, till the Icue forced me to update and then i lost control of the commander again. That's when i knew it was the Firmware problem. I searched for hours looking for a previous firmware, but no luck. The problem comes from the v 2.6.201 Can you send me a previous firmware to fix my problem. Thank you in advance. PS: Sorry for my bad English, it's my 4th language.
  9. Just built a new rig for a friend. I used 6 brand new ML RGB fans that came from two Capellix AIOs I installed in my personal rigs. The fans work. All 6 were rainbow from the moment I powered on the pc. As soon as I installed iCue and updated the Commander “PRO” the lighting on four of the fans stopped working. The other three show as the four LED ML Pros in iCue. All six fans show up in iCue and they do show lighting effects are applied. Changing the effects on the last three do nothing. The case is the Corsair 465x RGB that came with three LLs, Commander Pro and a RGB Hub. There’s no option for the Capellix ML RGB fans in the fan setup in iCue, only ML RGB Pros. I’m wondering if I need a Commander “Core” or “Core XT.” Any thoughts? Thanks y’all!!!
  10. I recently completed a new build where I have 6x QL120s and a H150i Elite Capellix AIO with 3x ML120s. I have it wired such that the ML120s are routed (both RGB and PWM) to a Commander Core, which is then routed into a Commander Pro via USB. The 6x QL120 RGB connections go to a Lightning Node Core that came with the fans in the 3-pack and that connects to the Commander Pro as well via USB; the PWM connections are direct into the Commander Pro. When booting up, all the fans have an evolving spectrum lighting going but when looking in ICUE, it only allows me to adjust the RGB for the AIO fans. It recognizes that there are fans plugged into the Commander Pro (as I can change the speed of the fans) but it doesn't recognize anything on the lighting side. I tried manually selecting 6 fans and then changing settings in the lighting but nothing actually changed physically. A bit confused on how to make the lighting work for the QL fans so any help would be greatly appreciated!
  11. Try not to focus on my artistic skills, the non-existent attempt to scale things according to real-life, and the fact that I didn't put the fan cables side-by-side. lol ML refers to ML140 Elite fans. Could be QL140 too. PINK for RGB cables and slots. RED for fan cables and slots. YELLOW for USB cables and slots. TL;DR: Will everything work fine if I follow the illustration above? I'm getting myself some new fans and light strips as soon as the Lian Li O11 Air Mini is available in Brazil. I have no idea where I should begin when it comes to the accessories needed to achieve my goal, so any help would be appreciated. I already have two ML140 Elite fans from my H115i Elite AIO and I think I'll buy another 4 because they seem to be more durable than something like an LL140 or QL140. I might change my mind and get 4 or 6 QL140. I'll have 2 front intake, 2 bottom intake, and 2 top exhaust fans (for my radiator), all 140 mm. I'm not counting the 120 mm rear fan because I'll use a discrete non-RGB fan there, or maybe even an LCD monitoring screen instead of a fan. As for the light strips, my plan is to set an LS100 450mm strip at the top and the other at the bottom, so that's why I wouldn't daisy chain them. I have the Commander CORE that came with the AIO, but not the Commander PRO. I guess I could get a Lighting Node PRO instead, but the Commander PRO would allow me to add extra fans if I ever need to. These are the main questions I have: Would the LS100 Expansion Kit 450mm strips work without the LS100 Starter Kit? Corsair's website says the LS100 Starter Kit is required for some reason, but I'm hoping they will work with the Commander PRO alone since I don't really need 4 strips and another controller. Can I connect the Commander CORE USB cable into the Commander PRO USB slot? If so, is there any difference between this and connecting each controller into a different USB 2.0 slot in the motherboard?
  12. Sorry to lump these all into one post, but here's what's going on. I just bought a brand new H100i Elite Capellix that came with a new Commander Core. 1. I installed my 4 preexisting LL120 fans into the core. Everything shows up in iCUE except the 4th fan, it only will pull up 3 fans at one time. 2. I tried moving around the RGB connections into different ports on the core, only 2, 3, and 4 would actually make the lights show up, no matter what fan plugged in to 1, 5, or 6, it just simply wouldn't work. Meaning that it's not 1 fan that is faulty (ps, all the fans would light up before I got the new commander core). 3. I tried unplugging the core and plugging in a Lighting Node Pro with an RGB Hub. That made 3 of the fans show up even when I selected 4. I moved around some of the plugs and got all 4 fans to light up, but now 1 of the fans is only showing up with 1 LED. 4. Plugged everything back into the Commander Core and now none of the fans will light up! I've updated all the firmware, multiple restarts, reset both the Commander Core and the LNP (I also had an additional LNP I tried, still didn't work right), updated iCUE, etc. I don't know what is going on. And continuing on with my issues with the LNP: I also just got new RGB strips, hooked them up to the LNP, they will show up in iCUE, but won't light up at all, I've reset the LNP and tried hooking it up to each individual strip header without any of the other ones attached, I tried on channel 1 and 2 (also with my other LNP I mentioned earlier), and no lights whatsoever. I also confirmed I have power coming through my LNP because the fans would at least light up through channel 2 when I tried it, so I know power is coming through, but the LEDs just won't light up. Maybe everything isn't getting enough power?? Cause it seems only half the ports on the Commander Core are working? Just ideas, but I have the feeling that even if I got another LNP or a new Commander Core, etc. This all would just happen again.
  13. Hi all I'm desperate for help to fix these fans I recently upgraded my build with a H150i Elite Capellix 360mm (icue), i have the rad fans connected to the commander CORE as well as my previous 3x LL120 RGB fans. Problem i'm having is using iCUE 3 or 4 i cannot control my fan speeds, the fans show up in lighting control as differant fans, i have tried using a set %, custom curve (with & without sensor set to gpu) as well as fixed rpm. The only control i can get is fixed rpm if i set it to 5000, the selected fan will ramp up to max but will then slowly wind down despite the fan profile telling it to stay @ max. I have tried clearing the cooling config file and restarting - No Affect, tried removing any programs that could control fan rpms - No Affect, tried a force firmware update - No Affect, updated all the iCUE to latest versions. I have check the Commander CORE Connections ( all secure & re-seated), also checked the MB connections ( all secure).
  14. Hi All, I have a h150i elite cappelix, which I want the fans to be managed by the commander pro. Obviously I still need the commander core to wire up the pump. So see my design below. I have a 5000X case. What I did is: - removed the PWM fan controller included in the case --> wired it up to the commander PRO - Used the commander PRO as the FAN controller for the H150i fans - Connected all casefans and H150I fans to the RGB hub included with the case - Connected the Pump to the commander core So my concrete question is: Will the H150 elite cappelix setup work with this setup? Or do I have to connect the fans and RGB to the commander core in order to get it working?
  15. Hi All, I'm hoping somebody may be able to shed some light on an issue I'm having. I have a H115i Elite Capellix CPU cooler, this has 2 LL120 fans mounted on the radiator. The cooler and fans are plugged into a Commander Core controller. For some reason I have no control over the RGB lighting effects in iCue. The software see's the cooler as it's displayed in the top bar of the software along with my keyboard. I also have 3 front mounted fans on my case and a rear exhaust fan, all LL120's plugged into the same Commander Core. I have no control over any of the lighting effects in iCue, all the speeds etc seem to be displaying fine. I wanted to add an extra couple of fans on the bottom of the case. So I purchased a couple of extra fans, a Commander Pro, the extra fans came with an RGB hub. I now have the 3 front fans, the exhaust fan and the 2 bottom fans plugged into the Commander Pro and the extra RGB hub and these are all working fine, they are listed and the RGB lighting is controllable via iCue, however the 2 radiator fans and the CPU cooler are the same, just stuck in the default rainbow effect and I have no control. If I plug the radiator fans into the separate3 RGB hub, they work fine. Am I right to suspect the RGB portion of the Commander Core is faulty? The computer is only a couple of months old. Oh and finally, port 6 of the separate RGB hub doesn't seem to be working either, there's no RGB lighting coming out of that at all I'm so confused, can anybody help?
  16. Hello Everyone, I am new to the forum. I am also new to PC building in general and have learned quickly I have chosen the worst time in history to build a PC due to everything going up in price and parts being hard to find. I have been doing a lot of research and have looked at a lot of the setups posted on this forum however I haven’t found quite what I’m thinking about doing. The components I plan on running are as follows: CASE: Corsair 5000D Airflow (Black) MOTHERBOARD: ASUS AMD AM4 ROG Strix X-570E CPU: Ryzen 5600x GPU: ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3070 (Black) MEMORY: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4 3600 HARD DRIVE: Corsair Force MP600 M.2 2280 1TB (2X) POWER SUPPLY: Corsair RM850x Full Modular (80 GOLD PLUS) CPU COOLER: Corsair iCUE H150i Elite Capellix CPU Cooler (Black) CASE FANS: Corsair iCUE QL120 RGB Fans (Black) (10 Fans) (3 Packs of 3 + 1) I plan on setting up 3X – QL120 fans in front and 3X – QL120 on the side as INTAKE. I plan to remove and hopefully re-sell the 3X – ML120 fans that come included with Corsair H150i CPU cooler. I will then install 3X – QL120 fans on the H150i CPU cooler and attach it to the top of the case as EXHAUST. I will than install the final 1X – QL120 fan to the rear of the case as EXHAUST. This will give me 6X – intake and 4X – exhaust. My question is about wiring all this up. My plan is to remove the included Carbide 6-port PWM repeater. I then want to use the Commander Core included with the H150i CPU Cooler. This will run the 4X – exhaust fans and the pump. I then want to purchase a second Commander Core and run all 6X – intake fans. I think this will be the cleanest set up. 1. But will it work? 2. Can I run two Commander Core’s together without any other lighting cores or Commander Pros? 3. Can you even buy Commander Core’s separately? I see they are on Corsair’s website, but I’ve never seen them in stock. Is there a timeline on when these will be available? 4. Is there any other business that sell the Commander Core’s separately? I would have made one of those awesome diagrams I see all over, but I didn’t know how. Thank you for any and all input on topic.
  17. So I have a Corsair H100i Elite Capellix. It worked fine for a while, aside from the motherboard complaining about a CPU Fan Error even though the Tach cable was properly connected to the CPU_FAN header. I just ignored this issue though, as otherwise the unit was fully functional. Worked upon startup, fully controllable in iCue. There were a few times where the RGB block wouldn't be recognized for a little bit after I disconnected it while in use, but that would fix itself. At least for a while. At some point, I disconnected it once again while in use accidentally while trying to swap the face plate. It once again wasn't detected after being disconnected and reconnected while in use, but I figured it would resolve itself like the times before. But it didn't. But everything else was fully functional, I just couldn't control the RGB block anymore. And then the next day, the Commander Core also wasn't recognized. Fans weren't spinning. The pump wasn't running. At that point, I had to effectively jump-start the unit by disconnecting and reconnecting SATA power. As a result of this, everything connected to the Commander Core would run at full speed, no matter what the temps were. I tried all the normal steps, fully uninstalling all Corsair software, uninstalling Aura Sync, reinstalling iCue, but to no avail. The unit wasn't detected. It wouldn't start up with my system- I had to jump-start it. I looked for another solution, which led me to the "Bluetooth and other devices" panel of Windows. The unit is supposed to show up there, but it didn't. I powered off the system once again, and reseated *every* connection multiple times. This also didn't help at all. I still can't control anything, and the RGB is still either forced to my hardware profile (RGB OFF) or just doesn't work. I don't know which. I then decide to look at Device Manager. I see the Corsair USBxp driver, and decide to uninstall it. Maybe it was corrupted somehow. I uninstall everything Corsair once again, and reinstall iCue. Still nothing. Not detected anywhere. Unit still doesn't start up with my system. Not even with a fresh OS or in the BIOS. Just doesn't work without jump starting it. I suspect it's an issue with the Commander Core, and as I can't afford to RMA as I don't have a replacement cooler on hand and need my PC daily, I plan to just buy a replacement Commander Core. However, they haven't been in stock so I haven't been able to do so. However, if anyone has any other suggestions, PLEASE. For now I've opted to have the fans connected to my motherboard and that sort of works, but it's not ideal. I shouldn't have to do this. EDIT: Also tried: Different PSU header, Different SATA power plug, the other USB 2.0 header, different fan headers for the pump tach cable.
  18. Hello Everyone, I came here to look for a solution for my weird issue :( So I do have a build which is exactly like the photo I already attached but what I encounter is that my ICUE software doesn't detect my Commander core unfortunately therefor I can't control my AIO Fans rgb nor Fans speed also I can't even control my Pump rgb :( I did setup all my build as the photo. Corsair H150i elite capellix with 3 radiator ML120 Fans + 6xQL120 fans. 1xCommander pro 2xlightning node core (comes with the QL120 Fans) My Motherboard is Z390 asus rog strix gaming E. Case Lian Li 011 dynamic. It's really sad for me since it is my first build in my life :(. Any helpful comment would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  19. Hello everyone, I recently bought a H150i Elite Capplix 280mm AiO which came with the commander core. I plugged in all my SP120 elite RGB fans, and the ML fans that came with the AiO into the Commander Core. My computer went to sleep last night and when I woke up this morning the AiO fans were only spinning at 800rpm. Before I went to bed last night the extreme profile had them spinning at 1000+ rpm. I uninstalled iCue and reinstalled it, but my fans seem like they are stuck on the balanced profile even though they are set to extreme. Does anyone know how I can fix this. I want all of my fans on the extreme profile but it seems to be broken even after a fresh install of iCue. I guess I should note that I have an MSI B550 Gaming Plus board, and reading Corsairs notes on USB connectivity issues w/ the symptom of static speeds, I might be affected.
  20. Hello everyone, I just recently built an AMD rig with an MSI B550 board, 4000x, H150i elite capplix 280mm, and 3 SP120 RGB Elite fans. The H150i came with the commander core. Right now for my MSI board I don’t see a way to disable fan control in the motherboard. All the fans in my case are PWM which are hooked up through the commander core. The MSI bios has my fans set to auto for power control, and I was wondering if I should change that to PWM or leave it at auto?
  21. So I have a Commander Pro and a Commander Core. I can set my fans to zero RPM with the CP and it will stop the fans. The fans I have connected to the CC however will not stop even if I have it set to zero %. I have QL and LL fans and both will not stop when connected to the CC. Is the the CC not capable of stopping fans? Thanks!
  22. So I recently swapped out my old H100i RGB Platinum cooler with an Elite Capellix H100i cooler. My case is a 570X, which of course cam with 3 SP120 RGB LED fans. I later added in another another SP120 RGB LED as a back exhaust fan. I was always able to control the 2 included ml pro fans from the rbg platinum cooler with icue, and would usually just choose a static color to match them with all of the sp fans that i could control with the button on the top of the 570x case. However, with the new Elite Capellix cooler coming with a commander core that I had to use given that it powers the pump, I had to change some things around. I took off the RGB fan hub that came with the 570x, which made the case buttons null for the time being (would like to look into somehow making one a reset button as I have heard it is possible). I connected all of the SP 120 RGB LED fans to the commander core (both power and rgb headers), as well as the ML 120 RGB fans that came with the Capellix. I had looked a decent amount online to see if there would be issues with mixing fans on the commander core, and saw that a firmware update was going to be out in January of this year I believe, so I had the assumption that i could just update icue and all of the fans would be in working order power and LED wise. However, none of the SP 120 fans light up at all no matter what I have tried so far. I did a complete wipe of ICUE and its files and reinstalled. All of the fans show up in ICUE, with the SP 120's running at 100% since they are not PWM which is fine, but at least for the moment the only fans that will light up are the ML's. Is there any fix for this? Or will I just have to purchase different fans or some sort of additional fan hub for these all the work together lighting wise (LNP or CC)? I can also make a diagram of my setup with the commander core, but it's pretty much just 1-1 with each fan header connected to the power and rgb connections of the commander core. Thanks for any help!
  23. I'm currently having an issue with one of my six LL120 fans. They are all hooked up to the same Commander Core that came with my H100i Elite Capellix. I tried unplugging the fan from the header on the controller, and plugged it back in and got no changes, as well as swapping it to a different header and the fan still wouldn't light up. All fans were working earlier and all still work fine except the one. Also in iCUE, I can see six fans under the performance tab, but once I switch to lighting effects, I only see five. My iCUE software is version is 3.38.61. Thank you in advance.
  24. I want to have an H100i RGB Platinum SE AIO (which comes with 2 LL120s) and 3 other ll120s. The commander pro costs so much, and I saw that the commander core had all that I needed, but I have heard that there is something about it being specific to the Cappelix coolers. Can I just use the Commander Core for the 5 LL120s and H100i, or do I need to use a commander pro with an rgb hub?
