[edit]

The SYSFAN headers support PWM fans by voltage control. If you look in the manual you will see the 4 pins are no different from the 3 pin layout and the 4th is a +5 volt. The CPU headers are generally the only actual PWM control.

I was proven wrong on my ASUS board, had the maximus 6 and I swore that all the headers were actual PWM control, as it is a selling point of that board plus you would think at the price of it, they would have all the bells and whistles. However that's not the case, but they do control PWM fans they just use voltage.

And the splitters you linked only work for PWM fans. You can use them on voltage control fans but the voltage fans will run at full speed as there is no voltage regulation there.

I connected the fan hub to the CPUFAN header and the cpu fans to the fan hub. Didn't find a better solution...

Any suggestions on bleeding the system set up like this?

480mm up top and 280mm on bottom.

Yes, on the M6F for example the two CPU fans will do fan control from BIOS, the CGA fans will not and the OPT ones will do fan control in response to thermal sensors.

ModMy Toys also has a PWM splitter but all these 4 pin PWN splitters are not the same as the Phanteks one which uses 3 pin fans.

1. Fill tube on res, with 90 degree bend out thru top 5.25 bay.

2. Drill holes thru fan mount plate on top exposing top entry points on rad (no drilling req'd w/a 420)

Here's what it looks like on a 420 .... for a 480 would be about an inch further back requiring the drilling

I am really impressed by this case, I somehow missed looking at it (I saw the news thread when it was released). I am ordering one tonight, going back under water and this thing holds radiators for days... super excited now.

Thanks for this info. Definitely convinced me to go with a 420 vs 480 up top!

It is a very impressive case.
A couple of the best reviews are Bill and Jesse's video review
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIpoC65bpX4

and Jesse's written review and build
http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/854-case-review-phanteks-enthoo-primo-full-tower-review/

Jesse's FAQ and tutorials are very informative.

I just switched my rad fans to the pwm controller and the case fans to my Lamptron Touch. I would prefer to have total pwm control of all my fans. Don't really want to wait until January for the extra hubs to go on sale. So, what is the best way for me to control my case fans on pwm too, without having to buy 6 pwm fans and something like the swiftech pwm hub?

How many fans total do you need to control?

I don't think there is one, that's why people here are so anxious for Phanteks to start selling their pwm hub as an accessory.

As far as I know you only have 3 options:

1 - buy pwm fans.
2 - use the Phanteks pwm hub.
3 - use a fan controller.
