Optical Drive # 1







  1. Hi, I've been searching and apparently seems that QL led's are subject to some issue, here is mine also. Being a 150$ kit, well this shoudn't happened Do someone else have sorted out how to fix it (I've already open a ticket with support); I wasn't expecting this lack of quality control from Corsair on a "premium" devices
  2. Hey all, I recently purchased 4 packs of the Corsair Ql120 RGB Triple Packs with Lighting Node Core. 6 of them are going on my Corsair iCUE H150i Elite Capellix Liquid CPU Cooler in a push pull configuration. The other 6 are split between front intake and side intake on my Corsair 5000D AIRFLOW ATX Mid Tower Case. Additionally, I have a Corsair QL140 RGB, 140mm RGB LED Fan for my exhaust out the back. My issue is, my motherboard, Asus ROG MAXIMUS XIII HERO ATX LGA1200 Motherboard, only has 2 usb headers... So how do I even begin to connect all of the fans and RGB to this board? I know that each 3 pack of fans comes with a Lighting Node Core 6 which means I have 4 of those. Additionally, I have 1x Commander CORE RGB & PWM Fan Controller and 1x Corsair iCUE Commander PRO Smart RGB Lighting and Fan Speed Controller. my issue is that I was also hoping to still use at least 1 of the USB headers on the motherboard for the front of the case usb's. I can't see how to put this together so that all fans and all USBs work. Any help would be super appreciated! Thanks!
  3. Hello, first time post and first time building a PC. I am building with the following parts, and it'll be clear shortly why I only have 1 USB 2.0 header: - Asus Prime x570-Pro - EVGA 3080ti FTW3 - Ryzen 7 5800 - 1000 W EVGA G5 PSU - WD NVMe - RP-Link AX3000E Wifi 6 / Bluetooth card (*needs 1 of the 2 USB 2.0 headers for bluetooth) - Lian Li Dynamic 011 Dynamic Now onto the Corsair components I want to install: - H150i Capellix AIO (not using the included ML120 fans) - 9x QL120 fans I have the following Corsair hubs: - Commander Core (comes with H150i) - Commander Pro (bought separately) - 3x Lighting Node Core (comes with each 3-pack of QL120) So, the question is: how can I control all of these fans RGB and PWM using iCue with only 1 USB 2.0 header available? I have seen a graphic (below) where the Commander Core is plugged into the Commander Pro, but have read that if it is configured this way, then the Commander Core does not appear in iCue properly). I was then thinking I would need to plug both the Commander Pro and Commander Core into my mobo USB headers but I need one of those headers for the wireless card. I would appreciate any guidance on the best way to configure this, and whether or not I need any PWM splitters (and if I do, what I should know about using them so that I do not have any issues with the hubs, etc). Thank you in advance!
  4. Hey Corsair Community, I seem to be having a problem with my Corsair QL120 Fans. I have them set to all white in iCUE and it's been working perfectly until one day one of the fans had a LED stuck on purple. I tried everything that I could to fix it but couldn't. I RMA'd it for a new one and that was a success. Now another two of my fans are now having the same issue. Has anyone else got this problem? Would anyone know a fix or am I looking to RMA the fans again? See attached photos. Thanks, Beauzinga
  5. Bonjour, J'ai fait l'acquisition d'un watercooling custom récemment. Voici la liste des éléments : - x6 Fans => QL120 RGB -> regroupés par 3 sur 2 radiateurs XRT 360 - CPU Waterblock => XC7 RGB - GPU Waterblock => XG7 RGB - Pompe => XD5 RGB J'ai aussi un HUB avec la possibilité de brancher 6 fans. Mais du coup j'ai l'impression qu'il va me manquer certains éléments ? Peut-être un commander et un autre HUB? J'ai l'impression dans un premier temps que je peux chainer la pompe XD5 avec la XG7 du GPU puis mettre ça sur un AdressableRGB? À chaque fois (XC7 / XG7 et la XD5) il y a 2 cables et j'ai l'impression que les 3 peuvent être chainés pour finir sur un seul port ARGB de la Carte Mère. Pour infos la CM est une ASUS ROG Maximus XII Formula. Questions 1. Du coup est-ce que la XC7 + XG7 + XD5 sont bien chainables? Si oui le premier a un des 2 cables qui va nulle part et sur le dernier le second va dans la CM c'est bien ça? Mon véritable soucis ici est le branchement! Le HUB et le Commander PRO (que je n'ai pas pour ce dernier) ne peuvent accueillir chacun que 6 FANS! Hors j'ai 6 FANS + le FAN de la pompe! 2. Comment effectuer les branchements? Merci d'avance :)
  6. Hi everyone, First time build and first time using Corsair products together. I currently have 7x QL120 fans that will be going into a O11D Mini case. I also have a 240mm H100i AIO that I have fitted another 2 QL120 fans to instead of the standard ones that come with it. I have purchased a Commander Pro unit, then a couple of the LED Fan HUBs. I have also bought a few Fan Y-Splitter Cables for connecting these together. My issue is that I have completely no clue how these should be connected together in order to make the best use out of the RGB, and if anyone could recommend or explain how best to connect these it would be really appreciated. I have seen a few other posts about this and a few diagrams, but just wanted to see if anyone had any better information on how to make sure they are connected in the right order. Also, I wasn't sure how many headers that I would need so as to get the power to all of these, and if I need to buy any additional splitters for 9 fans? Thanks in advance to anyone who has been able to help with this. :biggrin:
  7. At the moment i have 10 Fans in my PC 3 ML120 on my Corsair elite Capellix 150i and 7 QL120 All connected with Fan Splitters to the Commander pro. I want to change them to 7 Corsair ML120 Pro 75 CFM 120 mm Fans https://pcpartpicker.com/product/wPFXsY/corsair-co-9050041-ww-750-cfm-120mm-fan-co-9050041-ww and 2 Corsair ML140 Pro 97 CFM 140 mm Fan https://nl.pcpartpicker.com/product/ycH48d/corsair-co-9050046-ww-970-cfm-140mm-fan-co-9050046-ww Now my question is, does the Commander pro work with these Fans? If i plug them into the fan part of the Hub will i be able to control them in Icue to change and adjust the fan speed. I have looked around for the last few hours but i can't seem to find a real answer on them, no videos or forum really explaining it. so i made an account here in the hopes of getting an answer! :biggrin:
  8. Hi. To whom it may concern; I am a long-term PC enthusiast and this new build is the first time I'll be using the iCue software and RGB Fans. I think I've plugged them all adequately but can't get four of them to light up on boot. Let's get down to brass tacks: I use the Lian Li O11 Dynamic XL as case. I have a corsair Elite Capellix 360mm with the Commander Core, a Commander Pro, and two Lighting Node Cores (bought with my fans). I run 16 total fans, 6 as push/pull on the front (side, because of how the O11XL is made), 6 push/pull on top, 1 rear exhaust and 3 bottom intake. This is how they are plugged : The 6 of them on front are linked to the Elite Capellix's Commander Core, and therefore that wonderful little thingy takes care of all 6 fans' PWM AND RGB control (Neato Mosquito, would have bought 2 more of those if I could !) For the 6 of them on the top of the case, their PWM support is taken care of by my Commander Pro, and their RGB control by one of my lighting core nodes that came with a 3pack of QL120's. Now this is where I can't figure out what's wrong; the 4 remaining fans' (1 rear exhaust, 3 bottom intake) PWM control is done by a Cooler Master 10 PWM fan hub (https://www.newegg.com/cooler-master-mfx-mhhn-10nn1-r1-black/p/1W8-0049-00060?Description=cooler%20master%20pwm%20fan%20hub&cm_re=cooler_master%20pwm%20fan%20hub-_-1W8-0049-00060-_-Product) and their RGB Control is done by my second lighting node Core, so it only has 4 fans plugged and they are adequately plugged in the 1, 2, 3 and 4 ports. Those four do NOT light up on boot, but the iCue software recognizes that second lighting node core. I've tried changing its Satapower plug and USB header port, no change. They still don't light up on boot. Is it because I'm using a non-Corsair PWM fan hub ? Is it because I need to set-up that second lighting node core to try and control only 4 fans instead of 6? I'm guessing the solution is real simple here but since I am a very early beginner at iCue, I can't see it. Added quick snap of the inside of the PC, can't see the 3 bottom fans because they weren't lighting up. Thank you for your help !
  9. I recently built and installed my new PC and have been having issues with my 9 QL120 RGB fan setup. The iCUE software is switching the order of my 2 Light Node Cores that I have plugged into my Commander Pro USB ports. I have tried swapping the USB ports which seems to work initially, but the next time i restart my computer it switches the order of the Light Node Cores in the iCUE software again. Is there a way to switch the order of the Lighting Node Cores in iCUE software, or do I have to go about this a different way? Here is how I have my Corsair products hooked up: 6 QL120 RGB fans plugged into 1 Light Node Core the 6 power cables are plugged into the Commander Pro, and the Light Node Core is plugged into the Commander Pro's USB and Sata cable is plugged into the PSU 3 QL120 RGB fans attached to H150i radiator on the top of the case, the 3 power cords are plugged into the radiators splitter and the RGB cables are plugged into a 2nd Light Node Core. That 2nd Core is plugged into the Commander Pro's 2nd USB port and Sata cable is plugged into the PSU The Commander Pro's Sata is plugged into the PSU, and the USB is plugged into the Motherboard. Thank you for any help, I have attached a photo to show the numbering order on my 2 Lighting Node Cores. I am trying to get the visor effect to go through 1-6 red and then 1-3 green (according to my photo) but it's going 1-3 green and then 1-6 red
  10. Bonjour, J'aimerai savoir si ce montage est correct pour mettre 9 QL120 dans mon Lian Li O11. Je précise que les 3 du bas seront montés sur mon H150i Elite Capellix 360mm. Merci d'avance pour vos réponses !
  11. Hi. I purchased a Corsair 680X case. As you guys know, it comes with 3 LL120 fans. However, because these LL120 fans only has RGB on one side, I wanted to buy an extra QL120 to cover the 3 remaining fan spots in the case. If I understand correctly, using the Lightning Node Core from the QL120, The LL120 should be able to light their RGB but only one side of the QL120. Or maybe use the Light Node Pro that comes from the case? This is because I plan to have two 120mm at the bottom for intake and, thus, LLs would show their back... Correct me if I'm wrong? Cheers. P.S I know there's a supposed firmware update that will allow mix-and-match but this is in the meantime.
  12. Hallo zusammen, habe eine Frage über meiner Wasserkühlung H100i RGB Platinum. Kann ich dort die ML120 Pro RGB durch QL120 RGB Lüfter austauschen? Muss ich noch etwas beachten, dass ich diese Lüfter verbauen kann? Brauche ich für die QL120 Lüfter den Commander Pro? Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe. Gruss TnBoy
  13. hey folks! Im kinda new to the whole Corsair Eco System right now. Im start to build my new Hydro X system pretty soon and i designed prev. designed my loop already. Now im kinda stuck with the RGB Fan part. I will use 10x QL120 RGB Fans, 2x Lightning Node Core, 1x Commander Pro and 3-PWM-Triplesplitter I didnt connect the FAN RGB cable into the said lightning node core here. Is it correct that i need 3x SATA Power here? http://i.epvpimg.com/s7Xjeab.png Thanks for any advice maybe i dont need so much devices here for my 10x fan setup. Can i add RGB strips to the Commander pro here too?
  14. hi there guys, I brought some QL120's around 3 months ago and just recently noticed that one of the fans does this randomly (one led on fan 1 isnt showing green correctly - shows red when yellow/white is selected, same place everytime); [ame= ] [/ame] It seemed to 'fixed' by setting an solid colour/or changing colour in hardware lighting (sometimes takes a couple of 'goes' to get it to work). Although its not 'fixing' it this time :/ [update] This morning doesnt seem to fix it now :s Surely the green led hasnt blown already after 3 months? This makes me confused if its a software or hardware issue? Any advice would be greatly welcomed! Hopefully its something simple! Many thanks!
  15. Hello all! Im new here and just wanted to ask for some advice, im building a new computer and im trying to keep it all Corsair (or as much as i can) So heres what i got for the build so far: Lian Li O11dx case Msi mpg x570 gaming pro carbon Ryzen 9 3900x Corsair vengeance pro rgb 32gb (2x16gb) 3600mhz Corsair h150i elite capellix cpu cooler (360mm) Samsung 980 pro 1tb ssd Seagate barracuda 4tb hd Thermaltake toughpower grand rgb 850w Corsair ql120 rgb fans (3-3 packs) Corsair lighting node pro (led strips) Corsair commander pro Xpg argb extension cables (24pin and 8pin) I want to know how to get all the corsair products to run on icue and not have any issues at all and using as few usb ports on my mb as possible. Ive done a lot of research and i cant seem to find my exact situation and a lot of people are just using fans and an aio, not in addition to the led strips. So ill be running the h150i (with stock fans replaced with ql120s), 6 additional QLs, the leds, and possibly the xpd rgb extension cables (if they are supported). From the diagrams ive seen, it seems that most people link the individual rgb fan headers to the hubs, and the hubs to the commander pro, and the commander pro to the mb and sata. Would i need a usb splitter as well since my mb only has 2 usb ports? will i need a sata splitter? Am i missing something here? Or would i be on the right track? Any and all help will be truly appreciated. Thank you all!
  16. Hello Corsair users!!!! I have just done a new build and am fairly new to the corsair rgb and fan ecosystem. The build is a 465x case with the RGB Lighting node core and I have installed a commander pro as well. The mobo is a asus ROG strix x570-e gaming cpu= amd ryzen 7 3700x gpu= zotac gaming gforce rtx 3060 ti psu= evga superNOVA 750ga 80+gold. I have 4 LL120 3 in the front of case and one as rear exhaust then 2 QL120 on the top of the case as exhaust. i have learned reading through a bunch of post that you cant mix fans with the RGB Lighting node core. so my question is can you run 2 corsair rgb Lighting node cores off 1 commander pro with each rgb Lighting node core controlling only a set of LL or QL fans? Question 2!! This issue seams to be one with either Icue software or my commander pro. so what is happening is that what ever fan is plugged into port 6 wants to spin at 2300 rpm. I have tried multiple fans a different LL120 a QL120 and a non corsairs branded fan to take out the variable. They all sadly spin up to 2300 rpm Icue says and sound like a jet is taking off. I see for the specs of the LL and QL that they are only suppose to be 500-1500 rpm roughly so getting 2300rpm cant be good.......:bigeyes: The logical thing would be go to the icue software and adjust the speed. the problem is that majority of the time the software doesn't change any of the speeds. I will have to do a full reboot of my PC and sometimes and i will get lucky that they change. I can get port 6 to match the other fans if its on quite mode vs all the others being on extreme but it shouldn't be that way. It should be even across the board right??? I look in my open hardware monitor and it says that fans 1,3, and 4 only get 60%. these fans would be bottom front intake LL120 Top font intake LL120 and top of case exhaust QL120. So anyone know what could be the issue here do i need a new commander pro or are there some settings hidden in a windows PC or is it the mixing of types of fans???? I really hope someone can help me with this cause it is so frustrating...... Thank you for you time!!!! suggestion for Corsair software developers- make it so you can control either ll or ql fan by telling what fan is in each port on the same Lighting node core
  17. TL;DR at what RPM does the QL120 move 20 CFM? The relationship does not seem linear, I don't think I can just say 766 RPM = 20 CFM. Anyone have test data of QL120 in open air? Fan Speed vs. CFM? I'm sure there is someone that has done this setup. I currently have ML120 in push pull and I'm about to mess this all up for aesthetics. https://i.imgur.com/pjNuEaZ.jpg https://i.imgur.com/MvJ1LuH.jpg My goal is to match the CFM of the ML120 through radiator with the QL120 open air. What I'm looking for is any test data for the QL120 in the open air. All I know is: 525 RPM = 13.7 CFM 1500 RPM = 41.8 CFM And I have data for the ML120 https://www.techpowerup.com/review/corsair-ml120-pro-rgb/5.html ML120 through radiator at 1750 RPM ≈ 40 CFM So under load my plan is to have the QL120 run at 1500 RPM and the ml120 at 1750 RPM, this should match the air flow at 40 CFM through the radiator and hopefully won't sound bad. But what about at idle? The ml120 at 750 RPM ≈ 20 CFM Any advice is appreciated!
  18. Hi there, I'm about to do a new PC build as my Intel 2700k rig is 9 years old as of 2 days ago! I've been lurking these forums and the wider internet for most of the year trying to get my head around RGB/ARGB as I've had no experience with this. From what I can tell, the LED channels from the Commander Pro and Lighting Node Pro are the 3 pin 5v ARGB. Other things such as the Lighting Node Core, RGB Fan Hub, Commander Core output 4pin 12v RGB. Is this correct? I've also had a look at the awesome guide that Zotty has put together and looked at a few diagrams. From what I can tell, the below is what I will need to setup some bling in a O11 Dynamic XL (White) connecting to an Asus X570-E motherboard. I've written this diagram with the assumption that I will setup 6 fans as a push/pull on the 360 rad, I haven't fully decided I want to do this yet however want this to remain an option. I'm hoping some of you experts can peer review this to ensure my thinking is correct. If so I hope this diagram assists others looking to setup way too many fans in their O11 Dynamic XL. Diagram below, sorry it's a bit hectic!
  19. Bonjour, j'ai acheté un ventilateur corsair ql 120. il y a seulement 3 led d'allumée, j'ai le commander pro, le lightning node, et le fan contrôleur. J'ai beau tout essayé regarder toutes les vidéos d'installation, mettre a jours, redémarrer, brancher, débrancher et il ne ce passe toujours rien le ventilateur ne fonctionne pas (toujours pas de gestion du rgb) tout mes périf sont reconnus, les bande LED Corsair quant a elles fonctionnent, je paramètre et sélectionne les périphérique connecter (bandes led et autre canal QL) mais rien n'y fait. Je ne sais pas d'où cela peux venir.
  20. Hello and apologies in advance, haven been lurking for a few hours now and have yet to find a good solution to this lol. Long story short, I am looking to completely reset my QL120 fan profiles to their factory default rainbow wave. I've tried many suggestions through the forum ranging from making my own profiles in ICUE, adjusting color changing speed, and disconnecting my lighting nodes and commander pros. Can never achieve a similar result to that of the original rainbow wave :/ As of now I have ICUE still uninstalled (have been at it for a couple of weeks now whenever I had the time to play around with settings). I think every thread I have seen was from 2019, including some posts where members had said that a team from Corsair was beginning to or going to look into the "matter" of possibly adding the original rainbow setting. Apologies again if there's already a cut and dry solution to this, my eyes are dying from the screen at the moment lol And thanks in advance for responses!
  21. Hi, I just built a new computer and am new to RGB. I have 6 QL120 fans that are all spinning but the lighting is only working on a single fan and the center of the second fan. - 6 QL120 Fans are plugged into the Lighting Node Core and Commander Pro - Lighting Node Core is plugged into SATA power and into the USB on Commander Pro - Commander Pro is plugged into SATA power and internal USB header I can only see the lighting on the 1st fan and 2nd fan (only inner ring). All 6 fans are spinning and can be controlled via iCue. All 6 fans show up on iCue Lighting Setup/Channel. *Update*: I have now tried a second Lighting Node Core with no change. I have also tried plugging the Lighting Node Core directly into the motherboard internal usb header with no change. I have also tried having the Commander Pro and Node Core powered by separate SATA power. Unless I am missing something obvious, I either received 4 1/2 dead rgb fans out of 6??? These were purchased brand new sealed. *Update #2*: Ok, I now tried switching RGB connectors on the Lighting Node Core. I took the #1 and switched it with #4. Now the #4 fan (plugged into the #1 position of the Node Core) is fully RGB, but the previous #1 fan (now plugged into the #4 position of the Node Core) has no RGB. *Update #3*: Ok, so I had a hunch the #2 position fan could have an issue and causing each fan after that to also have an issue. I removed the RGB plug of the #2 position fan and now every fan has RGB except the unplugged one. I believe I may have solved the issue, just 1 bum fan. *Final Update*: Yes, it was the #2 position fan. It looks like it needs to be RMA'd and was causing all other fans after it to not work.
  22. Hey guys, So I'm about ready to begin a build using the Lian Li O11 Dynamic case and I'd like to populate all 9 fan slots. The cooler is going to be the H150i Pro, but i'll be replacing the fans with the QL series 120mm fans. I'm wondering what the best plan of connection is to power the 9 fans. I have a Commander Pro and each set of 3 fans comes with the Lighting Node Core, so I will have 3 of those as well. Motherboard is the ASUS B450-F if that info is pertinent. Thank you to anyone who can help me bring this vision to life :)
  23. Hi folks, I appreciate your time. I'm finishing up a build which has 6 x QL120's hooked up through a Commander Pro. iCue runs up the RGB side wonderfully, I have zero problems on that front. In a nutshell the fans went from idling quietly to 1500rpm of their own accord. All fans fire up together, there isn't just a rogue fan doing it's thing. Custom profile - No go. Even fixed RPM - No go. Cannot get a reaction out of the fans at all when playing with those settings. Quiet/Balanced/Extreme make no difference either. If I fire up Prime95 then I can bring on the fan increase, but it does not match the profile. It immediately goes up to 1500rpm regardless of the CPU sitting on <30C. I made a custom profile, switched to a temperature sensor instead of CPU and had it hanging outside the case @ 23C. Prime95 - 1500rpm again, completely ignoring the actual temperatures. I have uninstalled all SmartFan software, System Info etc from Gigabyte. The only other software is the NZXT CAM software running the AIO. Those fans function as normal and don't make any difference whatsoever to the QL120's. I have re-installed/restarted services etc with no change. Can I please have some opinions on what may be the issue here? Thanks in advance
  24. Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone has had any luck disassembling QL120s? And if so, how it was done? I wanted to paint the housing, but I don't want to break them. I know it would void warranty. Not too worried about that :D
  25. I plan on having 10 x Corsair QL120 RGB fans + 3 off-brand fans associated with the radiator. 3 of the Corsair fans will be push-pull with the radiator fans. I have a motherboard with a CPU fan header (4-pin), a pump/fan header??? (4-pin) and 5 system fan headers (4-pin). 2 sets of 3 Corsair fans will provide 2 Corsair Lighting Node Cores. Will I need a Commander Pro? If I read correctly, each fan header should be able to handle 2 fans (maybe 3) for fan speed control. 5 system fan headers should account for all 10 Corsair fans. The radiator fans come with a cable to connect the 3 off-brand fans and appear to be placed in the CPU fan header or the pump/fan header. If this is correct then all fans have fan speed control through the motherboard software ... correct? The 2 Lighting Node Cores would hand RGB control via the iCUE software for all 10 fans ... is this correct? Do these have to be plugged into a USB 2.0 header or can USB 3.0 headers work also? How do you get iCUE to number the fans 1 through 10? Does the Commander Pro do this using channel 1 and channel 2? Meaning 6 fans in channel 1 and 4 fans in channel 2? Please let me know where I am wrong and suggest what is needed. I don't mind buying a Commander Pro but don't want to buy 2. Don't want to buy any of possible. Thanks
