Corsair has announced the launch of the Corsair Commander Mini, a centralised control unit for the company's Corsair Link system monitoring and control protocol.

First announced in January 2011 but not launched until the following year, Corsair Link is designed to allow the monitoring and control of PC hardware through a specially-designed protocol exclusive to Corsair's devices. The Corsair Commander Mini adds the technology to any USB 2.0-compatible motherboard, adding control for six fans and one LED lighting system, plus readings from four temperature probes.

The Commander Mini is powered by a single SATA connector, and can drive up to 1A per fan header and 2A across the RGB LED channel - with the proviso that all connections combined cannot exceed 4A, rather than the 6A you might expect the unit to handle. The unit comes bundled with a Corsair Link Digital connection cable, and includes four ports for expansion to other compatible hardware like Corsair's i-Series liquid coolers and power supplies, along with four thermistor cables, three fan extension cables and double-sided mounting tape.

More information on the Corsair Commander Mini is available at the official website, where the device can also be ordered for £54.99 including VAT.
