Good day, readers. I'm gearing up for a new PC build that will include the following components of interest: Hydro X Series XC7 RGB CPU Water Block (115X/AM4) Hydro X Series XG7 RGB 20-SERIES GPU Water Block (2080 TI FE) Hydro X Series XD5 RGB Pump/Reservoir Combo ML120 PRO RGB LED 120MM PWM Fan - 3 Fan Pack with Lighting Node PRO ML120 PRO RGB LED 120MM PWM Fan - 3 Fan Pack with Lighting Node PRO ML120 PRO RGB LED 120MM PWM Fan - 3 Fan Pack with Lighting Node PRO ML120 PRO RGB LED 120MM PWM Fan - 1 Pack In short, I need to drive LED's for two water blocks, a reservoir, and 10 fans. I also need to drive the PWM signal and power for all 10 fans. I would like to do this with a single Commander Pro! Here is my plan for a single Commander Pro to tackle the task: (Starting CoPro supported power output - 4.5A minus MCU) CoPro Fan Ports 1 through 5 2-way fan splitter with 2 ML120 Pro RGB fans on each fan port 0.219A per fan * 2 fans per port = 0.438A per port * 5 ports = 2.19A total Possibly less power draw if the LED's are included in the 0.219A rating for each fan, which will be handled by lighting node pro explained below. [*]CoPro Fan Port 6 Pump PWM cable 0.0A power draw since pump is self-powered. (Remaining CoPro supported power output 4.5A - 2.19A = 2.31A minus MCU) CoPro LED Channel 1 Reservoir LED cable direct to CoPro channel. GPU LED cable to reservoir daisy-chain connector. CPU LED cable to GPU daisy-chain connector. (I cannot seem to find the power draw for all LED's in the CPU block, GPU block, and reservoir. Therefore, I cannot determine a power draw to add to the 2.19A total fan draw.) CoPro LED Channel 2 Lighting Node Pro LED Fan Hub on Lighting Node Pro Channel 1 5 ML120 Pro RGB fans connected to LED Fan Hub 1 LED Fan Hub on Lighting Node Pro Channel 2 5 ML120 Pro RGB fans connected to LED Fan Hub 2 (Remaining CoPro supported power output - 2.31A minus MCU and unknown GPU+CPU+Res LED power requirement = ??) Allllllll that just to ask, would this shake out as I plan it to? Am I overloading the CoPro unit considering it can provide up to 4.5A including MCU, 2.19A fan draw, and unknown water block + reservoir power draw? I appreciate any feedback!
