What if you have a lot of Corsair fans you need to control RGB and fan speed for?

They probably have RGB splitters of some kind to go out from a hub

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

That’s what a commander pro is for.

you can hook up multiple lightning nodes to a commander.

What do you hook it up to though? A RGB  port or fan port?

You should probably take pictures of your rig and explain exactly what you're trying to do, like how many fans and what not.

Your best off just having one commander ... unless you NEED more fan headers.

 

Then run hubs and nodes off the commander..  You can daisy thru the LED strips to get your link working.

For my latest case mod i'm running a simpler setup  more like this... But i get my fan power from the motherboard using  splitters.

 

Hence why it is best to use the commander.

Sample using the above diagram controlling 4 fans 4 strips

Can you not control fans with the node pro?

Not the LL's...

LL's have dual channels and need 4 pins i'm not sure about the HD's ML's and SPs....

 

The LED strips are 3 pins as is the node.

 

The HUB is 4 pin...

 

But why would you want to just run the Node with 2 fans?

 

You Get the HUB and NODE in the same box....
