Wow so you had 3 Corsair fans die, and you want to buy more? Impressive.

Be wary of buying Noctua fans, same goes for EK. Be Quiet also seem to have this issue

I got 2 noctua fans right now and never had any problems with them except the connectors dont make great contact with fan header pins. I have the industrial ones NF-A14 IPPC 3000

Try combining them via a Splitty9 or something and see if you have issues or not. I know I did and ended up returning those same fans.

Connect one and RPM control was fine, connect a second and I'd lose all control via PWM. Nothing but issues. It an issue for some controllers and not others. Aquasuite is more sensitive then most.

interesting. I dont use splitters because i heard these kinds of thing happen often. worse case scenario i can use the fan headers on my motherboard that will solve that problem.

What was PWM control source? Some PWM control circuitry will control up to 8-9x fans, others can't control even 2 fans.

Hopefully your motherboard PWM circuits per header can handle more than 1x PWM fan. Most can.

Don't know much about QUADRO but aquaero has had a few similar issues.
