Question about the Commander Core XT

Recommended Posts

If 4-pin splitter cables are used for PWM fans, how many fans can each of the 6 PWM ports on the Commander Core XT reasonably supply power to? When it comes to PWM connectors on motherboards, I've never had any problems connecting 2 fans to one connector via splitter cable, and sometimes even 3 to 1. How many can the Commander handle per port(something along the lines of the AF Elite or RS Max series)?

Officially one.  Splitters are not the way to go anymore regardless.  Your much better off with a powered PWM hub that uses 1 PWM port from the Commander XT and then a separate power delivery to take the load off the controller.  They come in various fan counts and are a better match for the most the 3x3x3 kind of cases that make up most of the market.  Using a three way splitter on any of Corsair's Commanders is a bad idea.
