Default HD140 with Lighting kits and ML RGB series

I want to know 2 questions

1) If i buy the HD 140 with controller do i still need the Lighting Node pro for RGB strips or not as i think i can save money and connect Corsair LED's directly to the Fan Controller i am sure NZXT Fans LED strips can do this I am not recommending them and prefer corsair fans as they light up the whole fan not just a ring around it and I really want Corsair Fans as I bought the ML140 Pro LED and and ML120 PRO Fans and am enjoying them and as everything inside my PC is from corsair besides MOBO/GPU/CPU and all my peripherals are too from Corsair it makes perfect sense

2) Is there going to be an AF and ML RGB Series of fans as the only RGB fans Corsair sell are for static pressure and those are best for radiators and most people have radiators on top (unless due to case restrictions or personal preference) and as a result they would use NON LED/RGB fans for the radiator and use only LED/RGB for front case fans

Arrow You need a LNP

If you wish to control the HD140/HD120 RGB LED Fan LEDs with software you need a LNP (Lighting Node Pro).

Why is that the lighting controller controls the LED's does it not also can i save the lighting to the Node Pro or Controller included with HD Fans
also want to know more about the commander mini what it can control and if it can store fan profiles as well as maximum number of LED strips etc... as I may get that and LED strips Instead of lighting node pro

I can't figure out what you are asking.

Yes I know why, but which "lighting controller"?

The CL Mini controls 12 volt LEDs and all the LEDs can only be the same colour.

The LNP controls 5 volt LEDs and each strip of 10 LEDs can be different colours and you can also have patterns as each LED can be individually controlled. The LNP can also control HD RGB fan LEDs.

AFAIK you need to have software active for the CL mini to sensibly control fans.

Thumbs down The CL Mini can't control RGB HD Fan LEDs

Sorry for late reply but how would i set up the HD fans with the lighting Node pro I am not getting either yet as i only have half the money for the LNP in gift cards(do not want to spend my cash on either so am just saving up small change to buy both with store bought amazon gift cards and will have enough cash within 6-7 weeks but I am getting them seperately so i will have the LNP ordered in a couple of weeks)
