  1. I have a Corsair 4000X case, which came with 3 SP120 fans and a stripped-down (no outer casing) Lighting Node CORE. I've had this for a while and have never had any issues. I recently bought a QL120 3-pack (which comes with a new Lighting Node CORE) to add in (QL120's in the front & the SP120's in the back). I didn't realize at first that one Lighting Node CORE can't support multiple fan types, so I took the old one out, installed the new one, and plugged all 6 fans in. I quickly realized the issue, and then reinstalled the old CORE and plugged in the SP120's to it (so now, each one has just the 3 fans it came with). But only the new CORE is showing up in iCUE. I can control the QL120s like normal, but the SP120s are just lit up in just a solid, default color and I can't select the CORE that they're connected to in iCUE. Both COREs show up in "Devices and Printers," so I know that my computer recognizes them. Any suggestions?
  2. Hi - I'm putting together a new build and had a couple of questions about the wiring setup for the fans and AIO cooler. I built my current rig back in 2013 and didn't have any RGB or AIO cooler so this is all new to me. For reference: Motherboard: ASUS TUF Z690-Plus WIFI D4 Fan Headers: 1x CPU, 1x CPU OPT, 1x AIO Pump, 4x Chassis 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C Connector 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Header 2x USB 2.0 Headers Cooler: Corsair H150i Elite Capellix (1 CoCo included) Fans: 6x Corsair QL120mm Fans (2 LNCores included) Case: Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic Power Supply: Corsair HX Platinum 1200W I plan on using the ML fans that come with the AIO on the cooler and as the exhaust up top, 3 fans on the side for intake and 3 fans on the bottom for intake. I saw a diagram of a potential setup (below) and had a couple of questions. Does the CoCo connect to the CoPro via the internal USB header or LED (I've seen both be mentioned in other posts)? If the CoCo is connected to the CoPro via USB header, how is the CoCo connected to the motherboard's PUMP fan header? If the CoCo is connected into the CoPro, is the AIO still visible in iCUE or is it all recognized as one entity and any changes affect all 9 fans? Is this an ideal setup for wiring? I do not currently own a CoPro so I'm open to other methods before I actually start the build. Given the header limitations detailed above, is there anything I should be considering for the setup? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hello everyone, Recently I started working on a fun, personal project to occupy my time by building my first PC. I've decided that this may be a relaxing way to "unwind" from my work, as I'm a Network Engineer and this seemed a bit less of a mental task and more physical one. That said, I've come to a sudden obstacle. I currently have a Corsair 5000D Airflow tower and saw on Corsair's website/tower review videos that it is possible to have up to 13 fans installed; 3x 120mm front, 3x 120mm side, 6x 120mm AIO CPU cooler push/pull configuration, and 1x 120mm rear). Call it overkill, but I am intrigued and would like to test this. The obstacle: wiring - HOW? Additionally, what other parts are needed, if necessary? I currently have a Commander Pro, a Commander CORE (included with the AIO), and 2x RGB lighting hubs (included with each 3pk of RGB fans), as well as the pre-installed PWM on the rear/backside of the Airflow 5000D. I have searched for hours trying to find some sort of video explanation or guide, but the only mention that I have located seems to require splitters. Is there no other way to make this work without the use of additional splitters? At the end of this all, ideally, I would prefer that the iCUE lighting function works with all the fan as well. I'm not too concerned with costs of additional equipment if needed, I just need to know what is necessary and how to do so. Just for safe measure, these are my current specs: CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5950x 16-core CPU Cooler: Corsair iCUE H150i Elite Capellix Motherboard: Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero ATX M4 Memory: Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB 128GB (4x32gb) DDR4-3200 CL16 Storage: Corsair MP600 PRO XT Gen4 PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD 1TB GPU: EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB FTW3 Ultra Gaming LE iCX3 Tower: Corsair 5000D Ariflow ATX Mid PSU: Corsair AXi 1600w 80+ Titanium Certified Fully Modular ATX OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Home Fans: 13x Corsair iCUE QL120mm I appreciate any help on this matter and look forward to hearing your responses. I'll be sure to upload photos once this build is complete. Thank you!
  4. Hey everyone, I just noticed today that one of the LED's on one of my QL120's are not working correctly. I have rebooted the computer, tried to change the LED colour and it's still not going to the correct colour. I'm going to assume the LED is defective at this point. Is there any hope of fixing it? or is it RMA if possible?
  5. First of all, early happy August to everyone! So I'm building a new pc since I upgraded my wife's with my old cpu and motherboard and I've run into a strange issue I've never had. Here's a breakdown of all the components : ryzen 5600x (corsair water block) Gigabyte B550 Auros master EVGA 3080 (ek water block) Corsair XD5 EVGA 850 80+ gold psu Lian li o11 dynamic XL 32 gigs of vengeance pro ram at 3600mhz 10 QL 120s 2 commander pros 2 rgb hubs (came with the fans) 2 360s In one hub, I had 4 exhaust fans and the XD5 and their rgb hub. In the other, 6 intake fans and their rgb hub. Both pros plugged into USB ports on the motherboard. So, when I went to fill the system, I noticed that the water wasn't actually moving past the gpu (the run goes pump-gpu- radiator-cpu- radiator- pump), yet all the rgb fans were lit. I thought this was curious. Even more so when I noticed that only the intake fans were actually spinning. So, I pulled the number 6 intake fan, and plugged in the pump. Pump worked. Oh, this is also relevant. The computer was plugged into a strip before. This time, I had to plug it directly into the wall. So, computer filled, ran for 12 hours leak testing. I decide to close everything up and install windows. It cuts on for a brief second, then instantly cuts back off. The rams' rgb is still running, which I'm guessing means there's auxiliary power getting to the board, but not enough to power it. This psu previously ran a 3600, x570 board, same 3080,same hydro x set up, and 8 ML 120s (no rgb). However, only a single pro was used. To troubleshoot, I put it in my wife's computer(3600, x570, H150i, 2 sticks of vengeance at 16 gigs). It powered everything perfectly! So I've narrowed it down to either there's an issue with running 2 pros, or 850 watts isn't enough power. Which is baffling! I have a 1000 watt being delivered tomorrow and will update this thread with my findings. Any suggestions are of course welcome! I just made this in case someone else runs into this issue and I get this figured it, it may help someone in the future! TLDR; 850 watt psu worked in old system, doesn't work in new system that has one extra commander pro and 2 extra fans Profuse apologies for the long read!
  6. Es gibt zwar schon Beiträge mit ähnlichen Problemen bei den QL-Lüftern, aber bei mir ist es einfach unwahrscheinlich schlimm. Ich besitze 9 von den Corsair QL120 ICUE Lüftern in meinem Case und bei insgesamt 5 von denen gibt es defekte LED´s. Die LED´s, die betroffen sind leuchten konstant lila/magenta, wenn ich in ICUE alle Lüfter auf weiß stelle und auch bei anderen Farbmodi leuchten die defekten LED´s in einer anderen Farbe als die anderen. Keiner dieser Lüfter ist älter als 3 Monate und auch mein tägliches Farbprofil ist nicht konstant weiß, da viele behauptet haben bei weiß gehen die LED´s am schnellsten kaputt. Nichts desto trotz war ich gezwungen bisher 4 Lüfter zu reklamieren, wobei vor 2 Tagen jetzt der 5. betroffen ist. Es ist einfach nur lästig mittlerweile und ich warte nur darauf, dass der 6. Lüfter den Geist aufgibt. Es kann doch nicht sein, dass man bei 30-50€ pro Lüfter sowas bekommt?!! Gekauft wurden die Lüfter teilweise bei Amazon und Caseking. Kommentiert mal bitte in die Kommentare, ob ihr das selbe Problem hattet/habt und ob ihr wisst woran das liegen könnte. Ich hatte mir schon überlegt, ob es eventuell an einer schlechten Produktionscharge liegt.
  7. 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.
  8. Bonjour, je viens d'acquérir un boitier corsair 465X. Ce boitier n'ayant pas de ventilateur à l'arrière j'ai donc acheté séparément un QL120. LEs 3 ventilateurs LL120 fournis avec le boitier sont donc branchés au hub RGB intégré au boitier, je branche donc mon QL120 sur ce même hub, cependant impossible d'obtenir du RGB sur le QL120, il n'est pas non plus détecté dans ICUE. Comment faire? Merci
