Question Do I need a Commander Pro with this setup?

Hi all.

I've been racking my brain on this and can't find a clear explanation anywhere, either on Corsair's site, MSI's site or searching these forums so I hope someone can clarify for me. If this is a redundant thread, I apologize, feel free to point me to the existing one.

I am planning a new build. The relevant parts are that I'm building with an MSI X570 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard, an H150i and I also bought a 3 pack of LL 120mm RGB fans that come with a Lighting Node Pro and Fan Hub packaged in with them.

My objective is simple (in theory): I want to be able to control the fan curves on the H150i and the LL fans and also control the RGB on the fans from the iCUE software or MSI Dragon Center.

Obviously, a Commander Pro can do this. However, this particular motherboard has a JCORSAIR1 connector on the board, which if I'm interpreting page 42 of the manual correctly, looks like it will allow me to just use the existing Fan Hub and Lighting Node Pro and achieve the same things. The H150i I'm getting is not the RGB version so I believe I can control the fans curves on that by just plugging it straight into the motherboard's CPU fan header.

Am I correct in this or if I want to be able to control all the fans and the RGB through either iCUE or MSI Dragon Center, would I still need a Commander Pro? Is there any particular advantage having a Commander Pro would add in this scenario?

Thanks all!
