How to hook up 8 corsair fans

Hi --

 

I just received a Hydro X kit which I ordered using the Hydro Configurator.

 

In addition to a pump, reservoir, CPU and GPU water blocks, (2) 480mm radiators, I have received: 8 Corsair 120 mm fans, 1 corsair commander pro, 1 lighting node pro, and 2 RGB Fan Hubs.

 

 

I'm now in the process of wiring all of this stuff up. The commander pro only has power connections for six fans. I have eight (purchased this based on the corsair configurator). So, I'm missing a power connection for two of the fans. Or at least that is what it seems like. Is there something that I'm missing?

Thank you for the assistance!

8 fans and 1 pump. Pump must go into Fan 6 of Commander Pro. Youll need to power 3 more fans. Now a risky route is to use PWM splitters. Why is it risky? Well there are a lot of cases where fan ports on the C-Pro die because of splitters. Mostly 3 way splitters but one of my ports died today from a 2 way splitter.

 

Your safest route would be to grab another commander pro.
