Corsair announces the Link Commander Mini air-flow control unit. The new Corsair Link Commander Mini is a tremendous evolution over the first generation Commander, giving you full voltage control over up to six fans, support for one RGB LED lighting chain, and connectors for up to four thermistors…and that's before you even get into the Corsair Link ecosystem. A single small box connected to an internal USB 2.0 header and powered by a single SATA power lead.

Except it will probably cost $100, which renders it irrelevant when a good quality 6-channel fan controller can be had for well under $50.

It's funny that Corsair still use the picture of Graphite 600t case although it is pretty much discontinued.

Since the 760t model came out and there's no any further improvement on the existing 600t, especially in the much needed areas like internally connected USB 3.0 ports.

Most local shops in my country took 600t off the shelves since the new year. It saddened me because I use one too.

I don't think it's discontinued yet. There's no official word on it and I can still find it in online retailers and many local shops.

I feel your statement is most likely inaccurate. The current Link Commander cost about $55. The new one should not be much more expensive. Compared to other fan controllers, the Link modules are WAY more advanced with the software monitoring and control tools. The Corsair module offers so many more features than other fan controllers (e.g. PSU monitors, lighting control, device). So even if it was $100, you could justify the cost to a degree.

Ha...probably would not be a bad company to work for!! I do pay attention to companies that actually add advanced functionality to their products versus something that "looks" good ;)
