scythe kaze master ace fan controller

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello.
I am using this tan controller http://www.scythe-eu.com/en/products/pc-accessory/kaze-master-pro-ace.html and right now my 6 fans are connected to it every fan uses a seperetly channel and my case has around 15 fans and I am out of connectors in my fan controller is there any way to plug more fans to the fan controller without buying one more fan controller?

You have 6 channels with a maximum load rating of 1 Amp/12watt per channel
What is the power rating of your fans?
If they are .5amp/6watt or less you can use splitters to run 2 fans on each channel... or if each fan is .3amp/3.6watt or less you can use 2 splitters to run 3 fans per channel.

They draw 0.13a/1.56w
http://www.corsair.com/en/cpu-cooling-kits/air-series-fans/air-series-af120-performance-edition-high-airflow-120mm-fan.html

You can run 6 fans on each channel. That's 9.4w... I would want total load to be no more than 90% of channel rating.. and that's 10.8w. wink.gif

You are absolutely correct! thumb.gif
I wouldn't say it if I wasn't. Question is are you sure? After all it's your case, your controller and your fans. biggrin.gif

FYI: Watts is volts times amps. So 1 amp per channel is 12 watts per channel. Rule of thumb is only use 90% of rating giving you 10.8 watts.

Corsair AP-120 Performance Edition
Operating voltage = 7v - 12v
Power Draw = 0.13a

0.13a = 1.56w per fan

Kaza Master Control Ace
Number of Fan Control Channels:
6 (Max. 1a /channel and max. 12w per Channel)


6 x 1.56w/fan on one channel = 9.36w

Post number 2 tells you how to run multiple fans. I don't use 3pin fans anymore so don't know if anybody is selling anything but the standard "Y" splitters.
