The fans have 2 cords each. 1 will go in to the included RGB hub "node core" (This connects to the mobo with a usb connector just like your front panel usb hooks into the mobo, it also takes sata power)
The other is a 4 pin PWM power connector.
Since I did not have very many PWM ports on my mobo I got this.
You can run 1-2 fans off each header on the mobo but I have 6 of these fans in my wifes comp.

I had a similar situation. I ordered a Silverstone PWM fan hub (plenty of other makes/models out there), I think it cost me $15.
In effect, if I remember correctly, one PWM fan plug on the motherboard turns off/on 8 PWM fan plugs on the fan hub. Those 8 PWM fan plugs are powered by a SATA power connection to the PSU so there is no issue of excess power draw on the motherboard PWM fan plug - as the fans are getting their power straight from the PSU.
EDIT: I checked, the one I got was very similar to this one on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-Technology-Silverstone-Splitter-SST-CPF04-USA/dp/B07N3HP8S5/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=cpf04&qid=1601764442&sr=8-1

This is what I use to control those same fans.
Powered PWM fan hub. Data signal from PWM on motherboard to hub. Sata power connector to power hub and 8 fans. 8x4pin fan connectors. One of the 8 reports the RPMs to the hub which relays back to the motherboard.
I control my fans via bios. Set to a static % until I am happy with airflow to noise ratio.

it has 3 fan headers 2 system and 1 cpu. if you want to have more than those fans you need a fan hub, something like this LINK this will run up to 8 fans on one header

I apologise you are correct. I do have an x52.
I do have another build with an x570i and use this fan splitter for 3x noctua slim fans and 2x40mm noctua fans for a node 202 off the 2nd header. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07N3HP8S5/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apap_okLTot5RnBHzl

Here's a powered fan hub that'll control all the fans and deliver enough power to control all of them.
Are you also trying to get the RGB lighting to work or do you already have it set up with the lighting node pro?

I've used this in a previous SFF build. Worked brilliantly and it's super small and can be stuck anywhere. Turns one 4 pin header to 8 lol. Plug this into your case fan header and use it to power all your case fans. They will all run at whatever speed you set that header to operate at.
Edit: Ideally you want 4 pins fans since 3 pins connected to this will still run full speed I think.

Yes you can control all of those products via iCUE. For the cooler, it's as simple as plugging the included USB 2.0 cable into a header on your board, then it will show up in the iCUE software. Regarding the series of fans, that just means they all have to be the same fan essentially. SP 120 Pro, LL, QL and HD fans are examples of the different series of fans. In your situation, the fans that come with the case and the single fan you will be buying are all the same, so they'll work together on the same Node Core that came with the case without any issues.
Yes, you'll need a separate fan hub in order to power the fans. If I'm not mistaken, the fans that come with the cooler can be plugged into the cooler itself in some way and then controlled through iCUE, but you'll still need a place to plug in the pump, the case fans, and your extra fan. You can use a fan hub like this to power all of your fans off of a single header and a SATA power connector from the power supply.
The ML fans that come with the AIO are 4-pin PWM powered fans, while the SP 120 RGB Pro fans are 3-pin voltage controlled ones. I would recommend plugging only the SP fans into the fan hub and leaving the ML fans plugged into the AIO. You can configure the header you plug the fan hub into to let the board know that the fans are DC controlled. Even though the SP fans only accept 3 pins, they'll still fit into the 4-pin headers on the hub.

if you just want to add fans you can go with something like this. not that i suggest getting this exact one. Solutions like the Corsair fan commander do some neet things but are not a requirement if you just want to power your extra fans. hope this helps some.

How does the Aquacomputer Quadro differ from generic pwm controllers (something like this)?
1 points • fuddyduddyc
Are they single-color led fans? Or multi-color RGB fans?
If single color led fans, all you need to power the fan and LED is to connect the 3-pin connector to the motherboard.
A couple of options:
Get a 4-way fan splitter. That motherboard has a “hybrid fan header”, according to the product site that supports up to 2A. However, even with that high a current rating, if each of those fans have an 0.5A rating, then you’re right at the limit.
Get a fan hub (safer option). The hub plugs into the motherboard fan header, the fans plug into the hub, and the hub (and fans) get powered by a SATA connector from the power supply.

Do not unplug the Corsair thing. That is the water pump for the water cooler. You can unplug the fan and then use this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07N3HP8S5/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_apa_i_tAHPEbJ5GMN54 to add more fans to the same fan header if you don't have more in your motherboard.

I'd recommend a case fan hub like this. It can power up to 8 fans (PWM and 3-pin, but 3-pin will run at max RPM) and pulls power from the PSU via a SATA cable, this way you don't have to worry about blowing a fan header.
That's the hub I use and I'd strongly recommend it, also comes with double-sided tape so you could place it discreetly anywhere on your case.

This one from SilverStone is a popular choice, has 8 fan headers and you can control all of them at once using a PWM motherboard fan header. There isn't really anything specific you are looking for, just one that works and has enough fan headers for your needs.

If you buy a fan hub, like this one, you can connect both your intake and exhaust fans into it once you insert it into your system fan port.
1 points • sk9592
Yes, you will need a fan hub like this one:
It will get the PWM fan speed signal from a motherboard fan header and power from a SATA power connector.
It will not draw power directly from the motherboard fan header because a single header cannot provide enough current for 6 fans.
1 points • Szalkow
Oof, didn't think about the total amperage. It's actually encouraged not to exceed 1A across ALL of the motherboard's fan headers combined, which makes 0.3A fans a dicey proposition. In this case it's better to get a standalone powered fan hub.
Here's a good cheap one that works well:
It will still read the PWM signals from the motherboard and use PSU power to control all the fans attached. This way you can hook up all the case fans on one case fan header and use the CPU_FAN header for the CPU cooler.
Sorry to give you an incomplete answer the first time!

Get a powered fan hub, something like this. The key thing to note is that the hub should connect to the PSU as well as the mobo, so the fan header doesn't get overdrawn but can still control fan speed.

you mean the two fans will follow CPU fan RPM? Guess you could do it but I've never tried that so idk how much it will impact.
Anyway you might be interested with this one. 8 pwm fans reinforced with SATA power connector, should be good than letting the fan header does all the job

An M.2 SSD isn't going to give you much of a performance increase compared to a SSD with SATA 6 GB/s unless you are planning on playing GTA V (in which then, it definitely will) so you can potentially cut costs there. That said, I know nothing about Crucial brand and only had an Intel and Samsung SSD, so not sure where to point to, but I would make sure you get a pretty good brand as some are just crap.
You also need an OS as well. While I've heard Linux people claim they can run Windows games on their machine with Wine, I'm personally hesitant about it. And if you are going into the high seas for this, I don't want to know.
The website is suggesting that you can go for a lower wattage power supply. You should also consider getting one or two fans for the front (as well as one in the back.) Looks like they can be 120 or 140 mm. If you go with two, you will also need something to split the fans as the motherboard only has two slots for case fans and one of them should go to your rear fan. This should do the trick.
And yeah, don't forget a mouse, keyboard, monitor, and some kind of speaker or headphones.
Outside of what I said, it looks fine to me and should pass system requirements, at least not without looking into closer detail about it.

I’ve never had to use one but I’ve seen someone recommended this before:
Seems to have good reviews. Just make sure to plug your cpu fan into the actual cpu fan slot, this is just for extras. If it goes out I’d doubt it’d hurt anything and then you could just replace it. Although I doubt it’d go out any time soon.

Replacing all the fans in my Air 540 case with this kit to keep my blower GPU cooler at less volume.
Also picked up this 8 port PWM fan controller to go with it since my motherboard doesn't have enough headers, will probably put all the exhaust fans in parallel. Recently taught myself how to use Speedfan and want to make the most of it.

I generally wouldn't do more than 2 fans in one header. For your setup I'd do:
- AIO pump into AIO_PUMP header
- Each fan on your AIO into the CPU and CPU_OPT headers
- A fan hub (check on amazon - this is NOT a cable, it's a small pcb that you can connect 6+ fans to and it's usually powered by SATA/MOLEX and then runs a single PWM connection to your motherboard chassis fan header. Here's an example that does 8
- Alternatively - 2x2 PWM splitter and 1x3 PWM splitter. 3 isn't ideal, but you can do it. These are all just cheap cable splitters and shouldn't cost more than $3-5 each. Plug one splitter into each of the 3x chassis fan headers

That case supports up to 5 fans-- two top (120 or 140mm), two front (120 or 140mm), and 1 rear (120mm). I think it comes with one in the front-- I'd move that to the back and get four 140mm fans for the top and front, although 1 rear, 1 top, and 1 front would be okay too.
A fan hub allows you to connect more fans onto one fan header. Most motherboards only come with 1 or 2 fan headers (excluding the CPU fan header).

I have five 120mm pwm fans in my case working off one port on my itx board. It shouldn't be a problem.
I would suggest using a fan hub though, similar to this one..
Edit: Sorry i should have gone into more detail.
Fan headers usually only support up to one amp. Each fan usually is between 0.33A and 0.30A. On a one amp header you should only have three fans, (0.90~0.99A)
Your fan header for that particular motherboard is 2 amp. So it is well under it's rated output with 5 fans. Also those fans, according to arctic are only 0.12A.
This is from my understanding of it. I am not an electrician 😉

If I went with /u/inertSpark's recommendation and bought an active, powered splitter, like this one on Amazon, that would work right? He mentioned I would lose the RGB, but the Corsair fans we bought come with an RGB hub, so I wouldn't lose the RGB in that case right?
1 points • FrozenSherbet
In that case, something like this hub from SilverStone should work well.

I'd bet that this one works well, since it's SATA powered it should be fine and not hurt motherboard.

I would go with something like this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07N3HP8S5/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_yeTjFbVV2Q6J1 It gets its power from a sata power lead from the PSU and just uses the pwm signal from the motherboard to tell the fans how fast to spin. (I have never used one of these before but that's how it should work)

I went with this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07N3HP8S5/
For no reason other than price and recognizable brand along with size.
It's pretty low-grade tech - one fan to the motherboard, a power connection, and you're set.
If you're doing RGB fans or something there are other options out there. I think there's even a Corsair ... Commander? that will do fans and RGB and link up with their software. I wasn't after anything super fancy.
1 points • DZCreeper
Yes, at straight 5V you shouldn't hear the fans unless you put your head close to them.
If you wanted to do a controller setup, buy the normal 12V versions and hook them into the PC with something like this:

Not exactly. PWM is a method for controlling fan speed. Splitter is a physical adapter that allows you to power multiple fans using a single header. Again, they are very loosely related, but far from the same thing.
I would pick the PWM controller, but it's such a small aspect that it shouldn't be the deciding factor when choosing the case. Buy the one you like more.
You can always buy splitters and fan controllers after the fact.

Take a look at fan hubs like this one
They plug into a single header and support multiple fans. Most like the one shown will still only show the speed of one fan, but will control speed of all of them. Speed of fans can not be adjusted individually.
The Corsair Commander Pro can run up to 6 fans and control them individually, but it is quite a bit more than most folks want to spend on a hub/controller.

> Is there any way I can squeeze more fans into a build if all of the fan headers are being used?
Yes, there are multiple ways:
And probably more ways, that I'm not aware of.
> My exhaust fan is a corsair RGB fan, but the RGB doesn't turn on. A friend gave it to me, and it worked fine in his build, so I know it's not broken. Any guesses as to why it doesn't show color?
I don't have any experience with RGB fans so I'm not sure.
