Default Connecting 9 LL fans

My issue is simple, I want to run 9 LL fans in my case (some are 120 and some 140 but that doesn't matter), and commander pro only has 6 connectors, would using 4 pin splitters work for this?

Hi buddy.. yeah you could do this...

Not Officially supported but there is no reason why you can not use Fan header Splitter cables on the Commander Pro, Note there is a 1A limitation per fan header and a 4.5A limitation for the entire unit.

see the below FAQ for Fan power draw specs etc

Okay... it looks like I could do it by using two RGB fan hubs and connecting it to a lightning node pro... but according to this, it would only let me control the RGB and not speed, right?

Right.. Drop the Node Pro. keeping the 2 RGB Fan LED Hubs. You would need the Commander Pro and 3 PWM y splitters to control all 9 fans RPM's.. each channel that has a splitter inline would appear as a single fan to the Commander Pro and LINK or iCue.

This is where you are heading really. ignore the strips and Node Pro's unless you also want strips..

make sure that one of the headers on the splitters that connects to the fans only has 3 pins connected ;)...

We usually recommend a maximum of 9 fans on a single Commander Pro using splitters. Note that you don't get individual control over each fan - just in pairs. They appear as a single fan to iCUE. For more than 9 fans, you might want to look at a powered PWM hub.
