  1. Right, I have scoured the internet; watched videos, ready forum posts, spoken to people in fb groups, the lot! And nowhere can I find an answer to this and it’s so frustrating that it made me cry last night. A year ago I bought the 220t RGB airflow case. It had 3 RGB fans already in the front plugged into a lighting node. So I put the rest of my pc parts in the case and been working fine. However the fans are so loud and my previous case had sliders to adjust the fan speed so it was quieter. I wanted to adjust the fan speed and read online you need a commander pro for it. So I saved up for one. Also upgraded my psu so I got a commander pro recently and installed it all again. Everywhere online said you don’t need a lighting node if you have the commander pro as it does both for you. However, upon turning my pc on after finishing putting it all together I open my iCUE and the fan speed says 0 even though the fans are running as they always have been but also the RGB lights in the fans weren’t on. And even though I tried to turn them on in the iCUE nothing happened. Questions: Have I plugged it in wrong? If so how can the fans be running at all? Do I need the lighting node and the commander pro? If I do why do people online say you don’t? FYI: I have NO RGB light strips. Just the RGB fans that came already in my case. I keep seeing videos on YouTube explaining this situation but with RGB strips and extra fans but that isn’t my situation and doesn’t help. Please please please can someone help?
  2. I have 10 LL120 fans in my case. And sometimes they randomly switch colors. They will be fine most of the time but suddenly they will start switching to random colors or just turn off. Sometimes they wil switcxh back to the colors they are suppost to be and they will switch again. Sometimes it seems just random what LED does what and sometimes its the same patern as they are supposed to be but in different colors or just some of the colors stay okay while others switch. It happens to the same 6 fans (i think it might be the controller but i dont know for shure) all the switches happen after +- 1 sec and after 3-5 switche they will turn normal for 5-30 second before going crazy again.
  3. My Corsair 680x case came today, noticed it had a commander pro preinstalled, as well as a lighting node core. First question which may seem pretty silly, how are these fixed into the case? I can't see behind them and don't want to pull at them to find out (just in case its not something sticky underneath and i break it). 2nd question is regarding the rgb setup. I have 8 rgb fans, 2 of which are connected to my cpu fan and cpu opt headers on my mobo, which leaves 6 that fit into the 6 slots on the commander pro. Which means all the pwm power to fans is taken care of, which just leaves the rgb to sort out. I want to use sequencial lighting effects such as "ping pong" but since the light node core only has 6 rgb headers and i have 8 rgb fans, it doesnt take a genious to work out the sequencial effect wont work properly. My next question is in 2 parts. Could i use a splitter on any of the rgb headers? let me try to help you visualise this. I want the sequencial lighting effect (ping pong) to work from the back of my case to the front and then back again. Like this... (I have 1x rear fan, 2x upper fans, 2x lower fans, 3x front fans). 1. Rear Fan. 2. Top Fan (Rear) + Bottom Fan (Rear). (2 to 1 splitter). 3. Top Fan (Front) + Bottom Fan (Front). (2 to 1 splitter). 4. Front Fan (Top) + Front Fan (Bottom). (2 to 1 splitter). 5. Front Fan (Centre). If the previous question isnt workable, the second part to my question is, do the 2 lighting channels such as the ones on the commander pro, and the lighting node pro run in parallel to each other or one after the other? I'll elaborate. If i plug a lighting node core into both channel 1 and 2 on commander pro. Would the lighting sequence be as follows:- Channel 1:- Header 1 then 2 then 3 then 4 then 5 then 6 then Channel 2:- Header 1 then 2? in sequence. Or does lighting channel 1 and 2 both start at the same time?
  4. Hello, I've two radiators (EK-CoolStream XE 480) which require a total of 16 fans (SP120 RGB Pro). The case comes with a Commander Pro and each 3 pack of fans has a Corsair Lighting Node Core. I don't want to adjust the RPM of the fans. I'd rather run the fans at max speed, set the LEDs to orange, close the lid and forget about it. I am looking for the most efficient way to achieve that goal. Do I need the Commander Pro to do this? I was thinking I could use 3 Corsair Lighting Node Cores for controlling the led color. Fan speed would default to max RPM. My board (Crosshair VIII Formula) only supports two 9 pin USB headers and if I use 3 Node Cores I thought I would require something like this: https://www.amazon.ca/Kalolary-Extension-Motherboard-Connector-Multilier/dp/B07D142PPQ/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=9+pin+usb+a&qid=1606610260&s=electronics&sr=1-4 Is what I am proposing doable? Any recommendations? Glaring failures? Thanks!
  5. Hallo liebes Forum, mein neues System sollte insgesamt 9 LL120-Lüfter bekommen und zusammen mit Hydro X-Komponenten Laufen. Das ganze sollte mit Hilfe eines Commander Pro, 2 RGB-Hubs und einem Node gesteuert werden. Ich habe alles nach bestem Wissen und Gewissen verkabelt und in Betrieb genommen. Das Ergebnis waren 2/9 sich drehende Lüfter und 3/9 beleuchtete Lüfter, sowie ein dunkler CPU-Kühlblock. Im iCue wurden bei der Lüftersteuerung nur 2 Lüfter angezeigt, was wohl daran liegt, dass die restlichen tot sind, da auch das direkte Stecken an einen Mainboard-Platz ebenso wenig bringt wie das Einspeisen von 12 V auf die entsprechenden Pins. Hat jemand eine Idee, wie so etwas passieren kann? Wäre ungünstig, wenn ich mir jetzt neue Lüfter hole, die dann das gleiche Schicksal ereilt. Dazu kommen noch Konnektivitätsprobleme, die einige Tage später aufgetreten sind: Erst verschwand der Lighting Node aus dem iCue, einen Tag später dann auch der Commander. Alles in Allem habe ich jetzt also verdammt viel Kohle im Form von Elektroschrott vor mir liegen. :(: Vielen Dank im Voraus für Hinweise und einen schönen Start in die Woche.
  6. Hey all, First post for me, I searched for a bit but couldn't find a clear enough answer to my issue. I think the answer is buy a commander/lighting node pro but I want to be sure before I drop more money into my build. I have 220T RGB airflow case, with a H100i platinum se AIO, Vengeance RGB ram, 3 QL pro fans and ASUS TUF Gaming Z490 plus wifi MB. I just found out how to sync my MB to iCue with the AuraSync software, so my question is this... How do I get everything to sync so they are doing the same colors at the same time? Currently when I switch to a profile all my RGBs are out of sync and it looks like unicorn vomit. I have a feeling I need to get a lighting node pro, commander pro sounds like overkill, but once again just want to be sure. Any help is appreciated, criticism i'm sure may happen as well. I will eventually be switching my fans to LLs to match the AIO to make the sync a little easier and make everything white (except the MB).
  7. Attaching my diagram... The Corsair system has a lot of tiny components that are confusing to design around. My system has 8x140 LL-RGBs and 3 non-brand PWM(No color) fans. I will be adding some of the Corsair LED strips, once I get a better understanding for how your controllers are setup. I think there are 3 controller parts: RGB Hub (a 6 way addressable splitter), Lighting Node Pro (2 channel addressable RGB Controller), and a Commander Pro (6PWM Fan and 2 ARGB controler 2 USB and 4 Temp Sensors... Kind of a Nope Pro with Fans, temp and USB??). I'm not exactly sure how the controllers chain up??? I need to know: How do the controllers and hubs chain up? (What can plug into what? How many times?) Can non-corsair fans will work on the Fan Headers of the Commander Pro? Can DC fans work on the Commander Pro PWMs? USBs aside, does anything connect to the Motherboard? Are there adapters to convert the standard to the proprietary connectors and back? Are those proprietary adapters only on the RGB cables (leaving the Fans as PWM)? Somehow, I think I am going to have a lot more questions as I cobble this things together... Snype
  8. Hi there, in my current PC are 10 LL120 fans connected to 2 RGB Lighting hubs (included in the multi-packs of the LLs) and both of them connected to my Commander Pro. I’m planning to upgrade to QL120. Do the QLs fit into the RGB Lighting hubs so I just have to replace the fans? I’d still like to use my Commander Pro for fan controlling etc. Thanks for your help in advance and stay safe <3
  9. Hi folks, I bought an RGB hub as I need it to connect an extra fan but it doesn't come with the cable to connect to the lighting node!? :confused: It seems nuts that this isn't included so it must be a mistake. How can I get a replacement cable?
  10. Ever since I got my K70 low profile MX Speed keyboard it has caused me nothing but problems with the iQue software. If I ever bring the software to the foreground it only detects my lighting node and not my keyboard until I unplug and re-plug the keyboard again. If I press the profile or brightness button the custom lighting effect I created goes back to default. I can't find a way to delete the three default lighting settings and permanently replace it with the custom one I created. I'm forced to set it once and never touch it again or open the program or it resets and I have to unplug and re-plug it again. Every time I launch iQue it only finds my lighting node. As a side note I have the lighting effects of my keyboard active under the same profile as the Lighting node because I can't find a way to get both to be active at the same time otherwise. Also I have 2 of these keyboards, one at work and one at home both with the same issue on 2 different computers. Can someone help me out with making sure my keyboard is always detected and to keep my custom profile?
  11. Recently I've resetted my lighting node inside of my corsair spec omega rgb case, because there was something wrong with the lighting on one fan. However, this did not fix the problem and I am looking into RMA'ing the fan this issue occurs to. But since the firmware reset iCue no longer recognizes the case, just the lighting node. This messes with the front led strip not being fully active. If anyone has this firmware, I would appreciate it a lot if you send it to me! Thank you in advance! :D:
  12. Hey there! After installing my new Lighting Node, I ran into an issue: after completely restarting my computer (including powerloss for a few hours), the Lighting Node is no longer detected by iCue nor USB Detect. When I switch to another USB Port on my mainboard, the Lighting Node is detected again (after another restart). The funny thing is, that my H100i v2 was detected anyway. I've disabled Fast Boot in BIOS and in Windows. I can't really turn on XHCI Handoff because I can't find it in my BIOS. The BIOS is updated, so are my Windows chipset drivers. Is this a common problem? Are there any fixes to it? Thank you in advance!
  13. I have 3 of each fan in my 570x, into my hub, into my Lighting Node Pro. The Lighting Node has 2 Channels and I have 2 fan hubs, but the Lighting Node only came with one cable to connect the hubs.... Will iCUE control all 6 even though they're different styles, or do I have to find out how to get another of those cables?
  14. Hi, Habe heute mein pc gestartet, alles lief wies sollte. Nach einiger zeit ist mir aufgefallen, dass bei meinen ml 140er lüftern die LEDs nicht mehr leuchten. Habe anschliessend ICue gestartet und gesehen dass ein softwareupdate zur verfügung steht. Das installiert und den pc neu gestartet. Beim start von icue wurden mir keine verbundene geräte angezeigt, und die leds leuchten auch nicht. Was soll/kann ich machen? Grüße
  15. Over the past couple posts I've made, I've slowly gained information I've wanted for a setup I've been trying to make for myself. As it stands, I've managed to have macros separated per keyboard (using Autohotkey to override regular function) and I've managed to save different lighting profiles to each keyboard (one lighting profile for my typing board and a different one for my macro board). However, now I have an issue. Since I have to close iCue to let the profiles read from hardware (otherwise both boards inherit the same profile because iCue for some reason can't apply profiles separately through software)... closing iCue leaves my Lighting Node set on the default rainbow effect. In iCue, I don't see an option for saving profiles to the device like the keyboards offer. Is there any way to get simple lighting onto the Lighting Node without iCue being open? This also serves as future information since I am getting a set of Vengeance Pro RBG soon and don't want my memory sticks to be vegetating due to profile issues.
  16. Is there enough space to mount the nzxt hue+ in the ssd slot and still close the door? Is there enough space in general for that or the corsair combo of commander pro and lighting node pro?
  17. Hi im new to this forum thing but I bought the Corsair LL series fan about two months ago and they started flashing and flickering and even changing colors without me doing anything. It happens while I game and while the computer is just idle. I really like these fans and i cant return them anymore because its already past the return date :( I have a photo of with some lights off and another with the lights working perfectly.
  18. Recently, the actual computer part of the Obsidian Series 750D “Yamamura” custom water-cooled system began having issues with random shutdowns and reboots, as detailed in this earlier blog. Ordinarily those types of problems are a frustration, but when your system looks like this… …the increased difficulty of swapping any parts out, potentially requiring you to actually drain the loop entirely, may even make you question why you built your system up like this in the first place. However, as any die-hard builder knows, part failure always has a silver lining: an excuse to upgrade. And that’s what I did, giving me a chance to rectify a few pain points in the original build, things I felt like I could’ve done or specced better. The system was already close to unimpeachable, but we can certainly do more. Swapping the CPU, Motherboard, and DRAM Before After CPU Intel Core i7-4790K (4 GHz) 4 Cores, 8 Threads, 84W TDP Intel Core i7-5960X (3 GHz) 8 Cores, 16 Threads, 140W TDP Motherboard ASUS Z97-WS ASUS X99-DELUXE DRAM 4x8GB Dominator Platinum DDR3-2400 10-12-12-32 1.65V 8x8GB Dominator Platinum DDR4-2400 14-16-16-31 1.2V The only way to “upgrade” past Intel’s monstrous Core i7-4790K (overclocked to 4.7GHz in our build) is to change your platform entirely, so that’s what I did. While the i7-4790K tops out at between 120W and 130W when overclocked, the i7-5960X starts there and pulls considerably more when overclocking is applied. But that’s fine: Yamamura enjoys a custom liquid cooling system with massive heat capacity. Changing the platform means swapping to the even more capable ASUS X99-DELUXE motherboard as well as jumping from DDR3 to DDR4. Latency does increase, but so does capacity and overall bandwidth. It’s a net gain, and our DDR4-2400 kit even includes an extra XMP profile that pushes the voltage to 1.35V and speed to 2666MHz. Incidentally, due to the spacing of the video cards, we actually lose a little bit of bandwidth to the pair of GeForce GTX 980s. The slot arrangement results in the bottom GTX 980 only getting PCIe 3.0 x8 instead of the full sixteen lanes, but thankfully this produces virtually no measurable decrease in performance. Upgrading the Storage A lot of people didn’t care for the way the LG blu-ray burner broke up the front of Yamamura, and I can see why. At the same time, I also found myself needing a little bit more storage for a documentary I’m editing in my off hours. Thankfully, there’s a way to serve both masters, and it comes from SilverStone. SilverStone produces a 5.25” drive bay adapter that can fit a slimline, slot-loading optical drive and four 2.5” drives. By purchasing a slimline, slot-loading blu-ray burner and installing a spare 512GB Force LX SSD we had in house, I was able to clean up the front of the case and increase storage. Fingerprints notwithstanding, it's a lot cleaner than it was before. Improving the Cooling and the Bling While the original build called for a Dominator Airflow Platinum memory fan, we weren’t able to find clearance for one owing to the ASUS Z97-WS’s layout. Happily, the ASUS X99-DELUXE doesn’t have this problem, and that meant we could add two Dominator Airflow Platinums. Because they’re PWM controlled, they’re a perfect match for our old Corsair Link Cooling Node, and because they use the same RGB LED connector as our other lighting kits, a single Corsair Link Lighting Node is able to control them. The end result isn’t just increased bling: even at minimum speeds, the airflow from the fans helps keep the DDR4 cool (with individual DIMMs peaking at just 38C), while also shaving at least 10C off of the power circuitry surrounding the memory slots. Getting fresh airflow into the motherboard’s VRMs never hurts. Yamamura 1.5 I was immeasurably thankful that I didn’t have to drain the loop to make these upgrades, thus reaffirming my belief in flexible tubing. Hard acrylic is frequently argued as the way to go in modern builds, and people say it looks nicer, but it’s not functional. I use this computer on the daily, and I am possessed by a relentless appetite for tweaking the hardware. Given just how bloody fast the Yamamura is now (and stable, mercifully), I don’t foresee making any major changes to the system until Skylake and Big Maxwell at the earliest, at which point there may be a newer, more exciting chassis to move into…
  19. The new Corsair Link Commander Mini is a tremendous evolution over the first generation Commander, giving you full voltage control over up to six fans, support for one RGB LED lighting chain, and connectors for up to four thermistors…and that’s before you even get into the Corsair Link ecosystem. A single small box connected to an internal USB 2.0 header and powered by a single SATA power lead. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_cl_commander_mini-Content-1.jpg Corsair Link has had a slow but steady progression since its initial rollout. The software, the Corsair Link Dashboard, is your interface with Corsair Link-enabled hardware, and it allows for a level of precision in Windows that you just can’t get with conventional motherboard fan control. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_cl_commander_mini-Content-2.jpg For starters, the new Commander Mini features fan voltage control in the hardware. While PWM fans are typically preferable, with the Commander Mini, you can now easily control any three-pin fans you plug into the unit. If you need additional fans, our Cooling Node can be connected to the Commander Mini to handle five more, but is PWM only. Hydro Series H80i and H100i coolers with fans connected to their headers are also fully controllable by Corsair Link. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_cl_commander_mini-Content-3.jpg Any Corsair product that features RGB LEDs can also be controlled in the Corsair Link Dashboard, and that includes RGB LED strips plugged directly into the Commander Mini or expanded upon with the Corsair Link Lighting Node. You can set them to change color depending on individual system temperatures, or just have them pulse between two colors. The LEDs in the cap of your H100i can gradually change from blue to red as your CPU heats up, or you can have LED strips in the case brighten or darken as your graphics card heats up. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_cl_commander_mini-Content-4.jpg HXi and AXi series power supplies can also have their loads monitored and Over Current Protection toggled from within Corsair Link, either by connecting to the Commander Mini or plugging directly into a USB 2.0 header on your motherboard. This is really the tip of the iceberg. Corsair Link has been admittedly rocky in the early going, but the Commander Mini is a substantial hardware revision designed to improve functionality and reliability. Meanwhile, the Corsair Link Dashboard itself continues to see great strides and a renewed focus on development, and there are big plans for the future of the Corsair Link ecosystem.
