I tried that but the SSD plates on the back makes it nearly impossible to route all the cables in the back cleanly.

Not impossible, just have to manage and route the cables.

Does anyone know the wattage limit for the front fan controller?
Would I be able to plug in say 6 corsair sp120 fans on the fan controller? (two per lead)

Max is 5w/ch on my Arc Midi R2
If they are PWM version get the Swiftech 8-Way splitter and use Speedfan to control via CPU header.
If 3 pin Phanteks has there fan controller coming soon, which gives 3pin fans PWM control. So you can use Speedfan on CPU header.

Took a slightly better photo of my Node 804 today since my Gene V broke. I can't seem to get rid of the yellow tinge from the lighting. I need to get better lighting for photos or take it outside again.

What case?
R4?

There is no fan controller tongue.gif
All it does is switch the fans between these outputs of the PSU:
GND, 5V, 12V, which results in the three outputs for fans of 5, 7, 12V.
It's only a bunch of cables, connectors and a larger switch with a few switch positions so it cans witch all the 3 lines.
As long as the switch or the cables don't fry you can draw as much as you like. Or you could just hook up the fans to your PSU because it's the same thing the fake controller will do.

I've put some switches through 5A+ even when they are rated 1.5A. I wouldn't really worry about hooking up a few fans to the fake controller.
I don't think you will manage to install so many fans into your case to overload the fake fan controller.

Anyone cut out the silly grills on R4? Best approach cut it out?
Especially rear and bottom.

What are you talking about fake. It is a fan controller. What do you think one does?
Fan controller = Ability to adjust the speed of a fan.
Fractal just has is preset to 5v, 7v, 12v. Bay fan controllers you see has sliders or dials. Which has a range of 5v-12v. Same thing.

Mmm well, I would call it a controller if it actually had any electronic parts. It only has a connector and a switch, that's all folks. If you hook up your fans to a molex connector it's the same thing.
For me a controller would have linearly adjustable voltage, which would mean either regulated voltage to the fans and or PWM regulation. Plus the more decent ones have temp. sensor and can be set up. Could warn you if fans stop, etc. It could ramp up the fans as needed based on temp. sensors. This can't do any of that and it's equal to connecting fans to PSU directly.
It's not a controller to me because it does not control anything, it has no logic, there is no MCU, nothing, only a switch that lets you choose to which wires of the molex from the power supply it will connect the fans to. The simplest and cheapest Fractal could make.

Any adjustment of fan speed on a physical unit is still a controller. You taking the term to a whole new level and made a simple issue that is not needed.
This is the same, you slide to adjust the speed you want. Same with NZXT, Aerocool and others.
