Important RGB Fans and Hub installation

Hello guys!
I just bought a

LL120 RGB 120mm Dual Light Loop RGB LED PWM Fan — 3 Fan Pack with Lighting Node PRO (CO-9050072-WW)

LL140 RGB 140mm Dual Light Loop RGB LED PWM Fan - 3 Fan

HD140 RGB LED High Performance 140mm PWM Fan - 2 Fan

Supplementary Corsair RGB Fan LED Hub

Now, I bought a second hub because one manage just 6 fans and I'll have 8 installed.

My question is about those hub's ports not used:
6 fans in the first hub, the remaining 2 in the second hub

Those 4 ports unused in the second hub will give me problems?

Tks in advance

Nope, shouldn't give you any problems at all. The RGB fan hubs do not need to be "filled up". Just add the correct number of fans to the correct LNP ports in Link and you'll be set.

Tks for your answer
I was asking because on its instructions booklet there's a note stating "Any fan not connected in series will break communication and the RGB LED lighting
function will not work"
That's the reason why of this thread

Right. They need to be in series ... 1 - 2 - 3 - 4. Using 1 and 4, for example, won't work. But the entire chain doesn't need to be filled.
So ... on your RGB hub with only 2 fans, the fans should be in ports 1 and 2 only.
