Question How to control my fan speed with my new CyberPower PC

May 25, 2020
Hi All,

Need a little help. So last week my new PC from CyberPower systems was deliviered (specs below) and me being stupid I haven't ordered it with the Corsair Commander Pro (which I believe lets you control the fan speed). Instead all my fans are connected to a Corsair Lightning Node / Lightning Node Pro and the cases in-built RGB hub. I've got 9 SP120's in total and because I have nothing to control the fan speed (including the bios because they're connected to the corsair controllers) they run at max constantly and are quite loud.

Presumably I need to replace the Lightning Node Core / Pro with a Commander Pro. My machine has a seperate "Tidy Cable" area so I was hoping there was some way to just pick a Commander Pro up and connect both the Lighting Node Core and Lightning Node pro to it or perhaps unplug one of these and use the cables for the Commander Pro. My problem is looking at the placement of the Lightning Node Core, I'd literally have to take off my motherboard to completely remove it meaning it was pretty pointless me buying a machine from CyberPower as I`ll make a right mess of putting it back together haha so I'm hoping theres a little bit of a bodge job here.

Any help would be super appreciated!
