Default Corsair RGB advice

Hi good afternoon everyone I’m new to building my first ever gaming PC.
I’m looking for some advice please on what extra parts I need to buy for my RGB build. I want to buy the ICUE 465x RGB MID-TOWER-BLACK. I have purchased 3 extra 3x LL120 RGB fans will the Corsair lighting node core work for what I want or do I need anything else ?

You can absolutely add those fans to the pre-installed Lighting Node Core.

If you want to go further, check out the RGB FAQ in my signature.

As DevBike said, yes you can add those extra LL fans and they will lightg up and you can control the RGB in iCUE,,



The case comes with a pre installed with a 6 port PWM fan repeater hub. this would allow you to control the RPM of upto 6 fans via bios/motherboard software (they would appear as 1 fan) .. but not in iCUE

To control fan speeds in iCUE you would need a Commander Pro..
