How would I go about controling my fans?

This is my first built and I was planning on using the 115i RGB and placing that on top of mine LANCOOL ll MESH and planning on buying 4 extra ML RGBfans, 3 in the front and 1 at the rear. I was wondering to control them using ICUE would I need to a commander pro or fan hub. Also would I need A lighting nod pro.

If you want fan control via Corsair's program, you need a Commander Pro.

A Commander Pro does what a Lightning Node Pro does (which is control RGB) + also fan speed control.

If u are not considering only iCue/Corsair, i recently moved on AquaComputer stuffand it's prime stuff ;)

U Can go with Splitty's 4 (include Corsair rgb) + Aquaero 6 for example ;) Or even Octo and just connect with RGBpx connector.

Only thing is that you will not have effects as if u had 1 separate header per RGB connector (effects like transitions between fans, they will be  only synch)

From personal experience, the 115i should have fan plug ins for the amount of fans it holds (3 or 2 I can't remember).

With these you can control the fans and pump with iCue, given you hook up the included USB plug into the aio block.

 

For the other fans, Corsair sells in 3 packs with an included RGB only controller which allows you to control RGB through iCue and the then the fans have a separate plug for power which goes into your motherboard, or separate fan controller. I did not know this before buying, and cable management was a pain.

 

However, I am satisfied with the fan speeds and performance I am getting. I control the non pump fans with my BIOS and the aio fans with the iCue sof
