Default What will i need to run RGB fans?

Hi everyone,

I will have 2x480mm rad + 1X360mm rad. Each one will be having pushpull corsair HD120 RGB fans.

so, 22 fans + 2 cases Fans, total 24 fans.
And i would like to have 2 corsair RGB led strips.

How many commander pro/lighting node pro will i need to runs all of these and to be able to control them trough corsair LINK? And how should i connect them?

Thanks !

Hi buddy.... have a read of this

http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=173880

should help you gauge what you need and how it hooks up ;)

My guestimate is 2 Commander Pro's and use some pwm splitters for fan control.. 2 RGB Fan LED hubs (12 fans) per commander pro for RGB control and a Lighting node pro for the Strips....

Technically PWM splitters are not supported by Corsair for the Commander Pro.. but its power limits are 1A per fan header and a 4.5A limitation for the entire unit. and HD120 fans Rated current is 0.30A..... so do your Math!

Just note ... we've seen several folks have issues with triple splitters even though the current rating was less than 1.0A. So ... for safety and reliability, I'd suggest staying with dual splitters.

Agreed.. 11 fan's per Copro which by my reckoning... .30a per fan x 11.. 3.3a..... should be ok...
