The mounting of a 3.25'' HDD into the cage ofHAF 912 involves putting 2 mounting clips to each side of a HDD. Each mounting clip has two screw/pins. See pic 1 below.
On each side of a 3.25'' fan controller, there should also be two screw/pin holes, matching the position of the said clips. See pic 2 for Scythe Kaze Q and pic 3 for Sunbeam Rheosmart 3 (which appears to missing the front holes but you can just as easy to use a double-sided tape to secure it in place).
Each fan channel has a wattage limit.
The Sunbeam Rheosmart 3 is rated at 30W per channel (for 3 channels). Theoretically, you can hook all eight fans to one single channel! (3.6W per fans x 8 fans = 28.8W). But it would be wise to distribute the 8 fans among the channels, just to be safe and to have a wider variety of control combination.
And, the Scythe Kaze Q has a rating of 12W per channel (for 4 channels).
