Question Which Corsair products to buy for RGB setup?

Hi, I am looking to build a new PC with the Zen 2 release tomorrow. I am going to use the 500D case and would like to have an RGB fan setup.

I have had an AIO liquid cooler pump fail on me in the past so I have been considering air cooling, but am open to Corsair AIOs as have seen that they come with a 5 year warranty.

I planned to buy the 500D case (without glass front) as I thought the 3 fans on the glass front of the RGB SE version may be a bit "in-your-face", then use some of my old non-RGB case fans in the front.

So in this scenario I could use 3 LL Fans (1 rear / 2 top) + Air Cooler. My question here is would this require the commander pro module or would the light node be enough?

Would it be better to buy a H115i mount on top, with a single LL fan in rear? Would this require a commander pro?

Secondly - the RGB SE case comes with a commander pro and 3 LL fans and has dropped in price to 185, which is now only 55 more than the standard edition, this seems quite good value so I am also considering this now.

Which setup should I go for?
