Default 11 Fans with a single Commander Pro?

As title says is it possible to control more than 6 fans with a single Commander Pro using fan splitters?


The fans are:
6x Noctua NF-F12 Industrial PPC 120mm 3000RPM PWM Fan
5x Noctua NF-A14 Industrial PPC 140mm 3000RPM PWM Fan

The fan splitters I am looking at getting are :
Noctua 4pin 11cm PWM Fan Power Splitter

Thanks for any answers.

You would be really pushing your luck. One of the larger issues with the 3000 rpm A14i is the 0.55A current rating, which effectively prevents you from from doubling them up on most motherboard or other fan controller headers. While you can get away with some doubling up on the headers, a F12 + A14 combo on each would still be 0.85A x 5 + 1 x 0.30 for the 6th. Over the total SATA capacity plus that way of splitting the fans would be annoying for control.

You've got 11 high speed fans. You are going to need 2 C-Pro or something else with a more appropriate number of headers. Because of the SATA current limit, you are probably looking at two fan controllers no matter what you choose.
