the mesh sentry is rated for 30w per channel. so it depends on what kind of fans you use. if you are using low RPM fans (<0.3 amp) then I'd say you can safely chain up to maybe 5 or 6 of them on 1 header w/o any problems.

well my question was, does each channel have two inputs or do I have to manually split them? I'm nooby with electronics on small scale (circuits and such), my apologies :/

The Mesh Sentry has five channels, each with a 3-pin connector.  If you wish to connect 2 fans to a channel, just use a Y-splitter cable.  See the pic below for illustration.
