You won't be able to control any system fans with Link. And if you connect the fans to the motherboard, the challenge with be proper control of the fan speeds. The motherboard fan headers won't be able to be controlled based on the H100i V2 temperature.

You also won't be able to use splitters and run all of the fans from the H100i V2. You have a limit of 1A from the CPU Fan header. 4 LL fans will run 1.2A.

The Commander Pro is a good option; it's really not that big ... if you can fit a 240mm cooler, you should have plenty of space for the CoPro. In most cases, you can mount it on the back of the motherboard tray.

A final option is to use a powered PWM splitter. It would absolutely need to be powered. This is an example: https://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-S...keywords=CPF04. You would connect this to the fan controller cable from the cooler (the one with 4 pins so it reports RPM) and then connect the fans to this.
