Default I have the 460x case with 4 SP120 RGB Fans

I read in the compatibility list that these fans are compatible, what do I need to make them work with iCUE? The case has the built in fan controller, but I'm gonna guess I need something else to link it to iCUE?

Pretty confused that there is no sort of explanation on anything to do with Corsair case lighting.

Sorry about the lack of information ji94x4. SP RGB fans are supported in iCUE but you are correct, there is an additional component that is required to provide the USB interface required so iCUE can communicate with the LEDs on the fans.

You have two choices:

1.) Commander PRO (https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Catego.../CL-9011110-WW)

This will enable you to connect the fans to the unit so iCUE can monitor and set the fan speed as well as the LEDs on your fan.

2.) Lighting Node PRO (https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Catego.../CL-9011109-WW)

If you don't need the fan support, then all you need is this hub so you can control the LEDs.

For the fans to show up in iCUE you must connect them to a Commander PRO or Lighting Node PRO. Having them directly connected to the case won't work.

EDIT: James beat me to it

Where would I buy one of either of those in the UK?

Would this suffice? https://www.scan.co.uk/products/cors...lqEALw_wcB&v=c

Yes that is the Commander Pro and would suffice.

Hi bud.. Prob worth having a read of the thread I have linked to below (it's also in my signature)... will help with visualising how it all goes together and what does what with what (LOL. mouthful that eh), All Corsair RGB fans connect in the same way so all diagrams apply to all Corsair RGB fans ;).. and indeed Hardware set up is the same for both Link and iCue..
