Default Did I Short Out My SP120s With ComPro?

Hi everyone! I just got a Commander Pro to control my SP120s along with everything else, and I couldn't get it to work. At first I had only 1/4 fans illuminated, and then had after moving things around, and then back to 1/4. They don't even seem to work now if I remove the ComPro and go back to the button controller. This makes me think they are broken vs. just not configured right or something. Also, what's interesting is when I plug in the power to the 6-input led module, one of the fans kinds of flashes and then goes dark. I think I figured out what happened though.

Reading the sticky thread on "HD120 RGB and SP120 RGB Fan connectors" it talks about not plugging in the 5v LED connector to any 12V connector, like the "Fan" connectors on the commander pro. Well, I believe that's the first thing I did when I put the Commander Pro in (after throwing out the directions, of course ). Would that explain why the LEDs are no longer working? Was running the PC / ComPro with 12v going to the LED connectors enough to make them no longer illuminate? I'd like to make sure that's the issue because then I might just buy new SP120s vs. buying HD120s assuming they might work better...

Thanks for your thoughts!
