Question Corsair Commander Pro + Lian Li Lancool One Digital (front RGB).

Hi all,

Seems it's quite some time since I posted on the forums :)

Anyways, I was re-doing my computer build, well partially. Got a new case (Lian Li Lancool One Digital), Corsair H150i Pro and the Corsair Commander Pro.

Now, probably a stupid thought, I thought I could connect the front addressable RGB on the Lian Li case to the Corsair Commander Pro. But the connector is different. I took a few screenshots of everything, maybe someone has an idea.

According to the Lian Li manual the addressable RGB LED can be connected to the onboard case connector. In this case you can switch RGB LED effects by pressing the button on the case.

Also they say that you can connect it straight to your motherboard's RGB LED connection header (which my mobo, Taichi X99, does not have).

Here is a quote from a review site:
Quote:
Lian Li includes an RGB LED bar that sits just behind the front panel's plastic shroud. The LED bar has a connection that enables you to plug it into your motherboard and control the light effects and colors in software, if your motherboard supports RGB-device light syncing and has the appropriate "addressable RGB" header for light strips. If your board doesn't offer support, then you can manually manipulate the lighting controller mounted behind motherboard tray in a limited fashion via the "LED" pushbutton on the top I/O panel.
So I thought if I purchase the Corsair Commander Pro, I would be able to control the Addressable RGB LED? But the connector does not fit.

Does anyone have any experience with this by any chance?

Sidenote; I also included a screenshot of the manual with the Adressable RGB LED.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Regards

Ho Zotty,

Thank you for your fast and detailed answer!

Yeah, I checked that page (afterwards; when I installed it).
I thought all those Addressable RGB's were the same to be hones (sorry, new to this whole RGB thing).

I noticed Corsair uses Molex 50-57-9404 connector for the RGB LED's.
Maybe this is compatible?

Anyways, I will await the answer of the other "guys" ;-)

Thank you once again.

So ... the Lian Li "native" connectors are JST connectors. Based on the manual link that you included, it has an adapter for the Asus Aura Sync/MSI Mystic Lighting connector that's on a lot of (recent) motherboards - z370 and newer. This should be a 4-position connector with 1 position blocked off (Pin 3).

With the part numbers listed in my post about making cables, you can make one. Or you can purchase one here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/372499030952.

I am terribly sorry guys! I never received a confirmation of any follow-up posts!

@Zotty
Oops, old profile. Didn't visit the forums that often anymore. Let alone update my profile. ;-)


@DevBiker
Thanks for the detailed answer! Highly appreciated. Since I am not that handy myself I think I will just purchase the cable. Though, I am wondering about one thing. The connector side (with the 3 pins sticking out) seems a bit bigger than the one which is connected to the Lian Li RGB led strip imho.

Or do I connect it to the PCB instead? I really think the one to the LED strip itself is more smaller (= tiny) than the pinned connector in the eBay link.

Sorry for the dumb questions. :S

So ... that adapter is for the Asus Aura/MSI Mystic Light cable. Based on the manual (bottom of the page), the LianLi comes with an adapter for Aura/Mystic Light motherboards. You'd use that to connect to the Corsair => Aura Adapter.

So ... it'd be
Corsair/Aura Adapter => Aura/JST Adapter => JST Connection on Lian Li.
