Hey guys, I'm trying to wire 8 QL fans in my 680X, 5 140mm (two on the radiator, two bottom, one rear exhaust) and three 120mm (front of case), as well as 4 RGB Pro strips. If I've got this right, I can connect all eight fans with the special RGB fan hub splitter into two fan hubs (already got this splitter from eBay), and then I need some PWM Y fan splitters to connect two sets of fans, so all eight can fit on the commander pro? Never used fan splitters, I don't know if I need a specific type or what, I'm also not entirely sure which ones I would need to populate where to get my lighting synced correctly. I'm trying to follow the wiring setup in the 1000D case example since its the closest thing I've been able to find to what I'm trying to do. So, I guess my question is do I need a specific kind of PWM fan splitters, and should I be linking them to specific ones? The diagram for the 1000D doesn't exactly account for fans that aren't side by side, so I'm not entirely sure whats gonna happen with the lighting when I try and split 5 140mm and 3 120mm fans into two hubs. If anyone has done anything like this and has any sort of insight, it would be greatly appreciated. I've been looking at Zotty's compilation of the RGB ecosystem and the fan setups and the like, but I still have doubts about what I'm trying to accomplish. Also if anyone could tell me if there's a specific brand of PWM fan splitters to use for this, or Corsair fans specifically, it would be appreciated. https://imgur.com/2zqD6EH <----- the 1000D wiring example I'm trying to translate into a 680X
Made up this diagram mostly to try my hand at the Gimp editor. Never used photoshop or the like before so I wanted to try a free program to practice. So I made up a diagram of how I have I have my RGB set up with ICUE. But after finishing, it dawned on me to wonder what is too much power to be safely and long term running through a single sata cable. So I hope one of you can tell me if this setup is OK. https://imgur.com/a/qKsfQKv
