Hey everyone, If you've ever come across the situation where traditional fans are too thick for a specific area in your case - we've got the fan for you. In addition to being capable of fitting into tight spots, don't let the AF120 SLIM fan's figure fool you, as it packs sheer cooling performance. Here are a few quick highlights: With a 15mm profile, the AF120 SLIM is suitable for nearly any PC build - especially for our SFF (small form factor) builders. Experience minimal noise with the AF120 SLIM's low-noise fan blade design, fluid dynamic bearing, and zero RPM fan mode. Though low-profile, the AF120 SLIM hauls performance without compromises and is easily capable of its role as an intake, exhaust, radiator, or heatsink fan. Click here for more information. We’ve put together a quick FAQ below. Q: What fan controllers are compatible for zero RPM? A: Our COMMANDER CORE (provided with ELITE CAPELLIX/LCD coolers), and COMMANDER CORE XT (provided with 5000T RGB/7000X RGB, otherwise available standalone) controllers. With these controllers, our iCUE software grants the ability to easily adjust the cooling settings for each individual fan it is connected to. In addition to the preset cooling settings, you may also create your own custom fan curve. Skip having to go through a complicated BIOS! Q: Are radiator mounting screws included? A: Yep! Q: How long is the warranty? A: The AF120 SLIM fans carry a THREE-year warranty. Let us know what your thoughts are or if you have any questions!
So what do you get the 1000d that has everything? A complete rebuild and a little brother to fit inside. Here is the first build post on my 1000d for those following along. Where that post left us was a 1000d with 2x420mm radiators configuration. Today's mission. 1. Add an ITX system with a 240mm radiator mounted in the rear of the case. The ITX is an ASUS B450 motherboard, Ryzen 3 2200G with integrated Vega Graphics. XC7 Waterblock and XD3 Pump-Reservoir Combination. 16GB Dominator RAM. 500GB M.2. 1TB SATA SSD. 2. Split the main loop into GPU and CPU loops by adding a second XD5. 3. Upgrade the CPU to Ryzen 9 3900x. 4. Switch the top Radiator from 1x420mm to 2x360mm radiator. Add 6xLL120 fans on top of the fan tray and 6xQL1200 fans below the radiators. 5. Use QL fans where possible on the internals of the case. 6. Create iCue profile that shows temperature tell-tales and controls RGB from the main system, while providing monitoring of the ITX. Buckle up it's a fun ride. 1. ITX system Prepped the ITX board external to the system as expected. Fit the CPU block, radiator in the rear of the case with no issues. The trick was the XD3 pump. The pump is bigger than it appears in the product shots. This pump is a 120mm square. You also need to allow for spacing of fittings on the board. The other interesting thing with this configuration is I wanted to mount it vertically behind the ITX motherboard on the 1000d PSU Shroud. The pump stand really didn't allow for this configuration, but some 3m double sided tape took care of it for now. If I stay in this configuration (not changing to a GPU for the ITX) then I will make some mounting holes in the PSU shroud. The second trip is that I needed two temperature sensors. I needed one to connect to the CoPro I mounted in the rear for the ITX to manage two fans and pump RPM. The other is a temp sensor for the CoPro on the main system to provide a RGB telltale for how hot the ITX is getting. Here is a shot of the ITX installed with the XD3 Pump Connections. Mission 2 and 3 were combined. I switch out the CPU when I took down the system to add the ITX build in. No issues other than driver installation. I rerouted the CPU block to the front 420mm radiator using the right XD5 pump. Went in easily like the original pump with no issue. Tubing is fairly straightforward. There is one long run that I am not completely happy with, but it will do until I make another change. Mission 4 was all about the GPU. I wanted to cool my EVGA 2070 so I could get both additional cooling and increase the OC on the GPU. I ordered a custom 1000d tray from coldzero.eu. They have recently started making custom trays for the 1000d out of plexiglass material. For my configuration (because I need the rear radiator in the case for the ITX) I had them center cut a tray with spots for 6x120mm fans. I mounted 6xLL120 fans on top of the tray and 2x360mm radiators connected below the tray with 6xQL120 fans. I connected these radiators to the left XD5 pump. Here are pictures of the tray and the radiators installed on the tray with fans. Mission 5 QL Fancy Adding QLs to all the internal radiators did not take a whole of brain power. Add QL fans to the radiators, rinse and repeat. The trick is in the connections to iCue device which come later in the story. Here are picture of the end result though. Mission 6 iCue Control The iCue setup was interesting. I have a CoPro for the main system and one for the ITX. I wanted to ensure that the ITX would always be in control of its own pump. Which means it must have a temp sensor from the XD3 and PWM control. In addition the ITX system has RGB control of the rear two fans on the case side of the 240mm radiator. That way I have a visual indicator from the front of the case that the ITX system is powered on. Summary: iCue from the ITX controls RGB for memory and two fans as well as pump RPM based on a temperature probe. There is also a shutdown temp at 45c that will turn everything red for 10s and then shutdown the ITX system. iCue on the main system is a little more interesting. It controls RGB for the main system as well as RGB for the remaining components of the ITX system (CPU block and XD3 pump). To do this, I ran a second temp sensor from the XD3 to main CoPro. There is also an ambient temp sensor, the GPU loop sensor, and the main loop sensor. There is a temp monitor set on both CPU blocks and all three pumps. You can see it in the pictures as the green light. This is a visual indicator of the temperatures of each of the loops. It goes from green to yellow to red as the temperature increases in the specific loops it is set to from the temperature probe. The color monitor is the first layer in all the device profiles and the LEDs that are assigned to it are removed from the layers below the temp sensor layer. There is also a main system shutdown set should the loop temperature exceed 45c, just like the ITX system.

I can respond here, but I also live on the Corsair Case Owner Club discord in the link in my signature.

Planning to purchase an Asus Z390i for my secondary build. I have a couple questions regarding corsair controller compatibility 1.) Can this board run with a commander pro? It has 2 USB 2.0 headers. (CoPro needs a Usb 2.0) to run and as I will be using the corsair H100i RGB SE, that pump will also use up a USB 2.0 header on the board I know the commander pro has 2 internal usb 2.0 ports as well, which leads me to my next question 2.) Can i plug the USB 2.0 from the Pump into the commander pro instead of onto the motherboard? I will be purchasing the LL120's 3 pack as well and that will come with a rgb led hub so the NoPro that comes with it to my understanding is that the CoPro will be the one I use since it does the job of the NoPro and more
