Considering the board, you can perfectly use splitters, with 2-3 fans per splitter. You have enough ports, and splitters add versatility. You don't have to run all of them at the same speed, or start them at the same temp. And 3-4 splitters will cost you next to nothing.

I just looked at the specs on these lights "fans". More Corsair comedy gold - "Flow Type: Static Pressure".
Good catch! I should have looked closer.
They used to sell them.

I'm tempted to just give the Thermaltake a go as it's the only one I can get... or I'll just use splitters.

Are 3 fans for one pwm header generally ok? I've seen 1amp is generally what a header can handle. These fans are 0.3amps each so in theory it should work. I may just do 2 fans per header for safety.
Here is one

ciarlatano please check these to make sure I don't mess up again.

a couple of these Gelid PSU powered PWM splitter would work.

I thought I might have one here, but I can't seem to find it. I use PSU powered PWM splitters/hubs so often I usually have a couple on hand, but I seem to be out.

Was just about to post a link to that swiftech splitter. I have used one for years and had no trouble with it.

Would be a great deal if it was in UK where e8564dan is. I'm in same boat. You guy get some great deal on your side of pond.

Isn't Splitty9 just a splitter with no PSU 12v power lead? I think e8564dan needs the kind that use 12v PSU power on SATA or Molex connector to power the fans and splits PWM signal to control fan speed.

I've seen some reviews saying the fans aren't all controlled properly but majority I've seen say it's great.

I'm using 6 QL120 Corsair fans and 1 noctua fan. I know the commander pro is there but it's a lot more expensive than the Thermaltake.

Anyone have experience with the Thermaltake or any suggestions?

Thanks.

Hi - I've been using that ThermalTake (TT) hub pwm hub (w/8 of 10 slots populated) for well over a year now, with 'zero' problems...the input signal is connected to one of the mobo pwm headers. I bought it here in W.Canada for the equivalent of US$ 17, along with a TT Core P5 (open box) for US$64, PCI extender cable included

While some TT products have had a less than stellar reputation, on these two TT products, I am impressed with the quality, and especially the underlying value proposition

Thanks for this. Have you got it connected to the CPU header or another PWM fan header on your mobo?

Literally, the only options I've really found are this and the Commander Pro in the UK.

This one here that was linked earlier also looks decent.

Think I'll stick with the Thermaltake for now. It seems to be user error issues I've seen, otherwise I've read it's decent. Although, the commander pro is definitely tempting considering I'm using those fans.

Thanks again!

I am using the Commander Pro to control 5 EK Vardar 120mm Vicious (75--3000rpm) PWM fans that are used to cool my 360mm and 240mm radiators in my 3900k/Radeon VII rig.

The Commander Pro is limited to 6 PWM fans so you might need a splitter for the 7th fan or run it off the mb header. I also use the MSI X570 Unify mb (simplistic but beefy) and I am very pleased.
