I have 2 sets of three sp120's 3 fans on two radiators, each set of three are wired together on the radiators, what i mean is i soldered 2 sets of 3 of the power plugs, if you do this only connect one of the threes speed sensor wires or the motherboards sensor reader will get confused and display 65535rpm

its pointless connecting all 6 of the fans power plugs separately to the motherboard its a waste of sockets. so i did it in a 2x3 configuration

as i say if you do this only connect the speed sensor from one of the three fans
Will ... for the most part, digital is digital. Well, to be more accurate, for the most part, the RGB used in computers these days is WS2812b. Note that I said "for the most part" ... there are exceptions to this, most notably the SP-RGB Fans are not WS2812b. So they won't work with a motherboard addressable header.

Yea this is true, what IC's do these sp120 fans use then?
