Default Corsair Link Lighting

is there a way to add more RGB fans/strips etc if you have 2 Lighting Node Pro's or get a Lighting Node Pro with a Commander Pro etc... as I know they are limited but by having multiple ones can you increase the number of RGB things you can connect

Question Exactly what do you wish to connect?

Yes, you should be able to connect almost an unlimited number. If you tell me what you wish to have I can tell you what I feel you should get.

I posting to this thread since its still a question on lighting. Can the individually addressable RGB strips be daisy-chained just like the regular RGB strips? If so, how many can you do on a single RGB header? I need 6 strips to light my case the way I want, and I'd like to use the addressable strips. I have an older lighting node and commander mini with 2 strips per slot. I'm planning to keep the mini (I don't see the benefit of upgrading the mini), but I'd like to run all 6 strips off the new lighting node pro. If its still 2x per slot limited, can I run them off the RGB header if I buy the fan kit?

Also, anyone know of the availability of expansion sets for new RGB strips?

Oops The only way to get the new 5V strips is to get a CLNP, this is silly!

Each CLNP/CLCP port can have up to 4 strips connected, so 8 in total. Each strip of 10 LEDs can have a different lighting effect and use different colours.

All I can suggest is that you get the CLNP which comes with 4 x strips and hope Corsair start selling just the strips.

sorry for late replies as i forgot i posted this but i know that there is a limit to the number of LED strips and RGB fans one can have hooked up to either Lighting Node Pro or Commander Pro but if i get the LNP and CP can I have more RGB connected as I want at least 4 fans and 2 strips if i get a larger case then I will get more fans to hook up and it can come in handy as well (the CP) as it has USB 2.0 expansion slots

I am going to buy either at least within 2 weeks

Idea There should be a sticky thread

I feel Corsair should create a sticky thread so I don't need keep posting about this .

  3. Each LED port can either control 6 x LED fans or 4 x LED strips.
  4. A CLCP + 4 x LED strips would be sensible, but the only way to currently get the LED strips is to get a CLNP which I feel is silly.
