Elevate Your PC Lighting Game – RGB Done Right!


Excuse me,
is this where the case magic happens? I’ve been expecting you.
Welcome to the room, where genius is born. Lighting genius, and so we’re gonna take
this lovely boring system of yours and turn it into an RGB masterpiece. I like
that, watch and learn. All right good people, so I’m Dimitri
from Hard Rock Canucks, teaming up with CORSAIR and today let’s discuss all the
proper ways you can elevate your lighting game, inside the case or perhaps
outside, super simple stuff by the way and control everything from iCUE software. And the learning begins, with the LIGHTING NODE PRO which is a digital RGB
lighting controller. It’s a simple and the most effective method for interior
or exterior illumination. You can hide the magnetic strip along any side of
your case. This bottom mount is quite nice as it
hides the RGB strip it delivers a beautiful ambient spill. And a more
permanent hold is available thanks to the included full sided tape, which by
the way can be used to illuminate your desk space instead. Also the hub, is super
tiny and easy to hide and route and supports up to four lighting strips so
you can arrange to light a little or to light everything. So now let me show you
how this entire LIGHTING NODE PRO eco system works. So each hub has two LED
channels so you can connect all four strips into one channel, or separate them
into two, or if you have the CORSAIR RGB FANS with an RGB LED hub you can route
the fan lighting into one of the channels on the NODE PRO. The hub then
gets powered via SATA connection on your power supply and is connected to the USB
port on the motherboard for that iCUE control. Now let me tell you blasting
your components with light is one thing, but cooling them with these beautiful
RGB fans is a whole other level of illumination craftsmanship.
Let me explain, so take these ML RGB fans for example, transparent blades that
properly consume that center light, for a gorgeous showcase. They spill just enough
light onto other hardware for that subtle but tasteful effect, plus they
cool incredibly well I always say that a few RGB fans will revive any build as
soon as the blades start to spin so you don’t have to feel any guilt. And for
something a little extra special the LL RGB pack lights up the entire frame for
even more lighting beautification because you always got to show the
hardware that appreciation element, through RGB, of course. But
let’s not forget it’s full control you’re after so when you leave this room
you’re gonna have a new COMMANDER, the COMMANDER PRO. So this thing is a
digital lighting and fan controller, or basically an all-in-one hub, that makes
your life super simple, with a full RPM control for six fans, dual motherboard
USB 2.0 pass-throughs and LIGHTING NODES for connectivity. The COMMANDER PRO eco
system is awesome, because it’s so modular. So once you connect the fans for
RPM control, the RGB LED hub from the fans connects into one of the LED
channels, while the other channel can be used for LED strips for example and the
USB 2.0 pass-throughs are awesome for all-in-one coolers for the CORSAIR
power supplies and we even get four temperature nodes, with each COMMANDER
PRO. That gives you flexibility for temperature monitoring. The PRO is then
connected to the motherboard for iCUE control and to the power supply for
power and now you’re ready for your own custom lighting adventure. And the final
chapter of this journey is that configuration element through CORSAIR iCUE
software. So you can basically enjoy endless configurations of lighting
effects for the strips and the fans choosing tasteful color matches with
whatever speed effects you might choose to make the machines feel alive or
simply have a color combo to reflect your mood and all this is done through
the CORSAIR iCUE software because anyone can create a personal RGB masterpiece.
Wow, now that reflects my color mood
perfectly CORSAIR lighting up your build for that gorgeous view. Alright so now I
hope you guys are aware of how to, you know, bring back a machine to life with
some RGB elements either through fans or LED strips using the LIGHTING NODE PRO
or the COMMANDER PRO from CORSAIR. Really awesome tools that make lighting
and creating that like personification, of illumination so awesome inside your
case. I’m Dimitri thanks so much for watching, we’ll see you
next video.

  • PaganWizard says:

    I would really like these RGB fans a whole lot more if they were offered in a 200mm fan like the Thermaltake fans.

  • Roxanne Stokes says:

    Thanks! This was really useful! I've already got my RGB keyboard hooked onto this (but cooler master RGB fans… which need replacing) so I'm going to go with corsair for my upgrade and the RGB strips. Thank you for making my choice easier!

  • hobbbitboy68 says:

  • Troels_ RL says:

    I bought the Corsair 460x RGB case, and I want to switch out the SP fans that comes with the case, to some LL fans. So do I need this commander pro to control the lighting/effects, or can I just use the RGB fan controllers in the back, that also comes with the case?

  • ProPaks says:

    do u have to have all three of the hubs or just the main 2?

  • Ivan Kovačević says:

    damn thats almost 300 bucks for rgb. but still looks amazing…one day, hopefully…one day

  • I am who I am says:

    the fan controller works only with Corsair fans I guess… or can I control any other fan with it?

  • liam meath says:

    I got one ML fan and i wanna run its rgb but i got it by itself and don't have a node, Do i just need the LED node or the RGB Fan LED Hub?

  • Zublits says:

    Corsair stuff is always really well-designed. I've bought a bunch of RGB stuff from various companies, (Corsiar, NZXT, Thermaltake, ec) and I keep coming back to the Corsair lineup because it has the best software, best looks, and decent performance. I still have some NZXT stuff in my case, and I wish I'd gone corsair for the entire build.

  • TJ Motion Channel says:

    Never trust a man with a hard drive hanging on the cables😄 great kits, thanks for the vid! But I did not quite get, how many individually controlled strips could me managed through it’s software?

  • MAK says:

    I bought this to run my noctua fans ;D

  • Captain Hindsight says:

    can you connect 9 fans, using one commander and 2 rgb splitters? or is that too much power?

  • Asian Ramen says:

    So I have to buy all Corsair

  • Nikko says:

    now release an updated commander pro version with 6 built-in fan LED channels so that it doesnt require an additional fan LED hub! as much as i like your products, your fan ecosystem is a total mess, because it requires too many devices and cables, instead of simply having an all-in-one solution. also instead of having 2 separate connectors + cables per fan, consider creating a propriety daisy-chain capable connector like in-win and lian-li. that would make things a lot easier!

  • bot1z says:

    Cool but I cant find many places to buy a Corsair RGB LED Fan Hub alone or a Corsair Lighting Node Pro alone

  • Thorch says:

    Star-lord lookin ass

  • Mario C says:

    Can you connect the h100i platinum cooler to the commander?

  • f2w says:

    i like Dmitry videos

  • Olteanu Radu says:

    If i get the Commander Pro i dont need the node pro or the fan hub anymore right?

  • jorge segura says:

    can I use the corsair 4pin RGB hub to control EKWB components that have 4 pin cable controls?

  • Plesh says:

    Now I'm even more confused.. What should I buy if I want 2 RGB strips and 2 LL fans?

  • Dream33Catcher1 says:

    I clicked on thinking it was an instruction video on how to set up.

  • BeaverKing says:

    If I have four rgb fans and two normal fans from corsair, can I plug all of them into the commander pro for rpm control?

  • deminybs says:

    Oh good at least I bought the 2 correct controllers since I didn't buy a bundle or whatever that comes with one lol nice video

  • manic .miner says:

    how many friggin controllers, boxes and wires, wires plugged into boxes plugged into fans plugged into rgb boxes, so simple and straight forward.

  • Madara 120 says:

  • Ghino Chips says:

    I can make argb without a 3pin header?

  • Gara Von Hoiwkenzoiber says:

    why isn't the commander pro gigabyte RGB Fusion 2.0 capable?

  • Ruan Neves says:

    Does this only work with corsair's products?

  • Garth Clark says:

    Is Corsair supplying their cases with the now standard 4 pin PWM case fans? The front I/O wiring loom connectors need + – labels on them for the Power LED and HDD LED orientation on the motherboard. USB C is now a standard with most motherboards and the front panel should have USB 3.0/3.1 and USB C ports. Some cases made by Corsair such as the 200R need updating as noted with the above items plus, as in the 200R, there is no option for solid side panels or the top of the case. The 200R is a very popular case yet, over the years it has fallen backwards due to the above plus, some folks do not now need radiator cooling and video card cooling on this case if they choose to use air CPU cooling and moderate discrete or Intel graphics. Where is the 200R by the way as you website has been saying out of stock for over one year now !

  • Kristiāns Liedans says:

    Can you make a tutorial on how to properly install rgb fans into your case? I don't quite get how all these cables have to be arranged together…

  • Fluffy says:

    Are there any 3rd party led strips that will work with the copro? I'm looking to get the copro but i also want to get rgb led strips that will sync up, but they only come with the lighting node pro or for a 40 dollar expansion kit to my knowledge (which is very overpriced!)

  • GaryChap says:

    Well… if it keeps the children occupied and away from the adults machine, then I'm all for it.

  • zombiks says:

  • Juan Manuel says:

    Insane spending.

  • Chronic_Breakdown says:

    So will the commander pro be the only thing I need to power 4 LL120 RGB fans or will I need the rgb fan connector hub to power the LEDs as well?
