How to Install a Lighting Node Core
The Lighting Node Core is a 6-port RGB LED controller for controlling your fans’ lighting animations. The Lighting Node Core is pre-installed in Corsair iCUE RGB cases and can be purchased separately from RGB fans.
Using the given double-sided tape, secure your Lighting Node Core in an open area of your case and Place your fans inside your case then Sequentially attach them to the Lighting Node Core ports. Since fan animations begin at Port 1, it is critical to begin at Port 1 and work your way down sequentially. Any fans plugged into ports after an open port on the Lighting Node Core would be unable to communicate with the controller if a port on the Lighting Node Core is skipped.
Connect the 9-pin USB cable to an internal USB 2.0 header on your PC motherboard that is open. SATA power should be connected to your Lighting Node Core. You can use iCUE to set up fan animations once you’ve built your Lighting Node Core.
I purchased the LL 120 fan unit with the Lighting Node PRO about a month prior. I have not seen such a glitchy set of equipment in my life. I have had countless issues with the hub not turning the fan LED’s on. This appears to occur after I shut down the PC for a brief period (closure around evening time, turn on the following morning or evening). I have attempted every one of the ideas I have found to improve it. I have detached the force links and squeezed the reset button on the hub until the fans returned.
These were the early battles. It used to be a crapshoot. In some cases, the lights turned on the initial startup attempt, and at times they didn’t. That isn’t the case now, and I don’t have the foggiest idea of what has changed.
I currently appear to be at a steady point where, after the PC has been closed overnight, I turn on the PC and the fanlights don’t turn on. I then re-closure, before I sign in to my Microsoft account, at that point restart my PC. This causes the fanlights to turn on. So indeed, I am at where I need to turn on my PC, at that point just after, turn my PC ease off so I can betray so the fan lights work. Does anyone know why this occurs!? If it’s not too much trouble, help if you think you know why I am having this issue. I might want to have the fan lights please after the first occasion when I start my PC.
It is so baffling to have this issue thinking about how cool the lighting impacts are with these fans, something I have seen again and again in regards to issues with these fan units. The fact that two of the fans are SP RGB and the other three are HD RGB, I believe, is the cause. Only 5 identical fans can be regulated by Corsair Connection. I believe that removing the two SP RGB fan connectors from the LED controller and replacing them with HD RGB fans in slots 1-3 would fix the issue.
However, I’ve already spent hours today working on my computer, and I don’t want to waste any more time doing this if it doesn’t work out. Is anybody able to confirm this, or is there another problem at hand? I think I’ll return the SP 120s and get two HD 120s instead.
LIGHTING NODE PRO highlights

I recently wanted to add RGB elements to my custom build and encountered a problem with the iCUE control program. I bought the LL140 dual RGB fans (with Lighting Node Pro) to go with my G.Skill TridentZ RGB RAM and Corsair Void Pro Headset, but iCUE only detected the Voids and not the Node Pro. I have precisely the same issue refreshed my regulator I have the one you can plug 6 RGB wires into the regulator it arbitrarily quit working will not perceive on my ique however my authority ace will. Had a go at resetting it, erased corsair multiple times, and reintroduced, unplugged USB, and moved everything over the load up even into my administrator.
Unplugged Sata and stopped once more into an alternate connector with 0 karma fans stuck on the rainbow. I cherished the corsair fans however with this issue I’m getting disturbed, I have corsair AIO corsair retribution master memory and corsair STRAFE m2 console and they all light up fine and dandy.
It can handle the fan speed with my officer for my fans on the AIO however fans stuck in the rainbow. The lone thing I have not attempted is eliminating 1 fan drove connector and connecting it to the administrator to check whether it is programming related or hub related. Disappoints the living poop out of me since I’m hoping to go full custom circle and I’m beginning to preclude corsair.
What does the lighting node Pro do?
Individually addressable RGB LED lighting with machine control for special lighting effects and vibrant PC illumination
Do you need lighting node pro with Commander Pro?
The Lightning Node is for connecting multiple Corsair RGB fans and controlling them via iCue; the fans themselves will still need headers. PWM headers are used by Commander Pro to monitor both RGB and fan speed. Lighting Node was all I wanted because I use a Koolance fan/pump controller that fits in a 5.25 bay.
