I was wondering if I can swap out the stock digital storm fans for some Corsair fans but I don’t know if I can use the same rgb controller that already came with the lynx or do I have to buy a whole new kit and set it up. Unless digital storm has some kind of software like Corsairs ICUE.

If you pick up a Corsair 3-pack of the LL or ML 120 mm fans, it will come with one Corsair Lighting Node Pro module included that links the Corsair fans and allows you to use iCUE software to control the RGB colors. You can buy those Corsair 3-packs on the Corsair site, amazon, NewEgg and lots of other places.

Thanks but what I meant was if I already have one of those rgb controllers installed by digital storm, can I just buy new fans and plug it in there or do I have to swap that out. The pc came with 4 rgb fans and I wanna add 2 more rgb fans.

Well then you need to know if there are 2 available fan ports left on whatever RGB controller they used.    Might need another DS controller if all fan ports are in use, and you would want the exact same DS RGB fans to match what you have..

Don’t think you will use that controller if you were to add Corsair fans...
You would need Corsairs controller unit.

I just checked and I have 2 slots open for fans. I guess I’ll just plug the Corsair fans here.
