My plan was to plug the AIO RGB(only) fan wires into the LiNoPro module so they would show up as sequential so the chase/lights functions would sync and let the pump head controller take care of AIO fan power/speed. What I didn't realize was that the LiNoPro also requires a USB header.

I coun't myself lucky as my board has enough 3.0 outputs that I could sacrifice the second 2.0 header on my board, but their within lye's my question...

1. Would having 2 USB headers connected cause any dis concerns or confusions with the iCue software?
Nope. If it did, I'd be in really deep trouble - I have 4 NoPros, a CoPro, a Platinum Cooler and an HX1200i all connected to USB on my main system.

Nope, you can absolutely do this.

You could use Lighting Link but it's a moot question. You can put them all on your LNP/Fan Hub.

Yeah, the connections can get a little extreme. I actually have in internal USB 2.0 fan hub ... and that's full.
