Corsair has released the Corsair Commander Mini, a centralized control unit for Corsair Link PC control and monitoring system that gives users the ability to connect and control multiple lights, fans, and other Corsair devices with an intuitive software interface.
The Corsair Commander Mini is equipped with four Corsair Link Digital ports, six fan control connectors, four temperature probe inputs, and a port for connecting Corsair Link LED lighting strips. The unit connects to user’s PC through a standard SATA connector for power and an included cable to connect it to a USB 2.0 header on the PC’s motherboard.
Everything is configurable from the PC’s desktop via the Corsair Link Dashboard software interface, allowing users to see how a system is operating at a glance. Coolant temperature, ambient temperature (at multiple points), and the speed of case fans and fans built-in to compatible system components can be monitored.
Corsair Commander Mini gives PC users the power to manage fan speeds individually, set up customized cooling profiles, or program fans to respond to changes in ambient or component temperature. Lighting can be programmed to relay critical system information or to change the look of the system to provide a visual indicator of the selected cooling profile, or just for fun.
The unit’s fan controllers work with any standard PC case fan, and the included temperature sensors can be placed in a PC case.
