Hey guys, I'm trying to wire 8 QL fans in my 680X, 5 140mm (two on the radiator, two bottom, one rear exhaust) and three 120mm (front of case), as well as 4 RGB Pro strips. If I've got this right, I can connect all eight fans with the special RGB fan hub splitter into two fan hubs (already got this splitter from eBay), and then I need some PWM Y fan splitters to connect two sets of fans, so all eight can fit on the commander pro? Never used fan splitters, I don't know if I need a specific type or what, I'm also not entirely sure which ones I would need to populate where to get my lighting synced correctly. I'm trying to follow the wiring setup in the 1000D case example since its the closest thing I've been able to find to what I'm trying to do. So, I guess my question is do I need a specific kind of PWM fan splitters, and should I be linking them to specific ones? The diagram for the 1000D doesn't exactly account for fans that aren't side by side, so I'm not entirely sure whats gonna happen with the lighting when I try and split 5 140mm and 3 120mm fans into two hubs. If anyone has done anything like this and has any sort of insight, it would be greatly appreciated. I've been looking at Zotty's compilation of the RGB ecosystem and the fan setups and the like, but I still have doubts about what I'm trying to accomplish. Also if anyone could tell me if there's a specific brand of PWM fan splitters to use for this, or Corsair fans specifically, it would be appreciated. https://imgur.com/2zqD6EH <----- the 1000D wiring example I'm trying to translate into a 680X
Setting Fan Order and Rotation in iCUE 3.27 Starting with CORSAIR iCUE version 3.27 you can customize the order and orientation of your fans. This allows you to have more fine control over how custom animations are displayed on your system and saves you the effort of physically removing and re-orienting your fans or changing the ports they’re plugged in on your lighting hub should they be in the wrong order for more complex lighting effects. Lighting Setup Tab To get started, go to the lighting setup tab of your iCUE-compatible lighting controller and configure your lighting channels if you haven’t already, for this example, we’ll be using six LL RGB fans on a Lighting Node CORE. You’ll notice that each fan has its own tile in the preview and they’re labeled by the physical port that fan is connected to on your controller. Each fan will light up with a unique color in the same location, making it easy to decide how you need to orient and re-order your fans if they need to be adjusted. By moving your cursor over each fan tile, you’ll be given fan rotation controls to adjust each fan clockwise or counter-clockwise in iCUE. For best results, match the LED position in iCUE in relation to the physical fan. By default, iCUE will always illuminate an LED on the top left quadrant in the UI, so if one of your fans is displaying the LED indicator on the bottom left quadrant of the fan, you should hit the rotate button to match the LED indicator on the fan preview with the physical LED indicator on the fan. You can also change the order of the fans by clicking and dragging each fan tile into the desired position. When looking at the preview window, iCUE lighting animations will go sequentially from ports 1 – 6 (left to right in the preview window). If your fans are displaying animations out of order, simply drag and drop those fans into the correct sequence for your system. Lighting Channel Tab Whatever fan orientation and order you configure in the lighting setup tab will now carry over to the lighting channel tab. And that’s it! Note that fan orientation and order only apply when iCUE is running, if you close out the software completely your fan lighting will revert back to their physical orientation and lighting order. TL;DR, we've now got a video. [ame] [/ame] If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out to us by making a thread in the iCUE section of the forum.
Hey guys, New to the pc scene, I’ve got a Corsair 570x case, with the Corsair H150i Pro, I’m looking at running HD120 fans throughout the case, for now I plan on having 6 fans (3 on front of case with rad, 2 top, and 1 back). I believe I should be running the front fans with the rad as intake, and the rear 1 as exhaust. The top two I’m not too sure of. I’ve also seen Zottys setup with the push pull and the extra case fan on the top of the Psu shroud, does that improve anything in particular? Also my last question would be, should I mount the psu in the shroud upside down or facing upwards? Cheers for any assistance. Nomoresorrow
So in future, I'm planning to create a build with 6x LL series RGB fans and a commander pro as well as the RGB lighting strip extension kit. How would I connect this up to be able to control each fan individually (fan speed and RGB effects) and control each RGB strip individually and sync the RGB effects between everything? This build is also planning to have corsair RGB RAM and corsair water cooler (the new H115i Pro or the new H150i Pro). Could I sync the RGB effects of the fans and strips with the ram and cooler?
