    Thank you so much @unknownmiscreant for the great tutorial. 
    And thank you so much @miha929 to explain that i have so many fan power ports other then using commander. If i know this before, i will not buy the commander ??. 
    Once again thank you so much guys. You made all this headache gone really quick. 
     
    If came to bali. Just contact me. 
    Btw here is the result

    Yes...   the LED limit is quickly there...   so the arduino option is not bad!
     
    my motherboard has yust 1 ADD header...   but the Maximus has 2...   so you are good to go with 240 LED's
     
    i'm happy that i could help....  ?

    Thank you all. Now i can control my corsair fan from aura. 
    • From corsair fan hub has 3 pin but only containing 2 cable (5v and data only) ... so from the cable output. Since it only need the DATA. Actually i only rotate the cable that goes to the board ADD_Header1.
     
    so my cable position from the hub connection output will be :
    blank - data - 5v
    once again thank you all for the sharing

    @miha929 @Kayanaphotographybalk Looking good. You guys have basically got the right idea. Basically disconnect the RGB hub from the commander and connect the middle pin of the cable going between the commander and RGB hub to the data pin of the addressable header on the motherboard. The instructions posted above are accurate. If you follow those with the LL fans you won't have an issue.
     
    Regarding connecting fans in parallel, you should be able to connect multiple fan hub data pins to one addressable header data pin. I would recommend running each hub off a different addressable header. I have never tried to run multiple LED strips off one header. A more reliable solution would be to chain 2 hubs together in series, however using HD/LL fans you will quickly reach the 120led per header limit imposed by the aura software. If you want to run more than 6 or so fans I would recommend building the arduino system described in the OP, as it gives much greater versatility of control compared to Aura.

    @unknownmiscreant. Thank you so much for your time to reply my questions. 
    Here is pictures of my setup. 
    1st image to show you how i put the RGB fan. 2-140mm i put on the radiator (on top pics) and i plugin on mobo fan pin (using 2 pin) near from the processor area. 
    On commander pro, there is usb pin plugin in there. Its from the ntxz x62. As i already use the usb 2.0 connector on mobo for the commander ( please advise if i’m wrong) as on maximus X only have 1 usb 2.0 on the mobo. 
    at the corsair hub, i plugin only 5 this moment. 2 from 140mm fan and the other 3 from 120mm fan ( all LL series fan ). At this moment i still not plugin the other 3 120mm LL at the front panel.

    5v power for the leds in the fans is provided by the SATA connector. The ground is connected through the powersupply, so not really necessary to connect to the header. You only need to connect the data pin from the MBO to the middle pin of the RGB splitter.
     
    Definitely post your results. For first test, I would recommend only having 1 fan plugged in, just in case something's not working right.
