The max power per spec is 1A per header and 4.5A overall.
That said, 2 way splitters do work fine. 3-way splitters cause issues so as long as you stick with 2 way splitters, you're good.

Hey DevBiker, appreciate the response. How much do the White LL120's pull running at 2200RPM? Cause i'm using all 6 ports on the pro and if i could use 3 total would save me 3 ports for later use :)

According to the specs, they'll pull up to 0.3A.

I do...... although not supported by Corsair,, so at your own risk.. I am currently running 8 fans on one CoPro.. most i have ran is 9,, and as said,,,, doubles only. we have seen triple splitters pop fan headers



Taken from my FAQ thread

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 including it's MCU and any Corsair RGB Strips you have attached) and I recommend no more than 2 Fans on any one Channel (note, seen plenty of issues when trying to use triple PWM splitters or more).

If anything dude, i was thinking just run 4 fans on 2 headers, and just run 1 fan per header for the remaining :)

Wish they would have made people aware of the limitations to using only a 2 way splitter (2 fans on one port). Would have saved me a lot of problems. Now I have 2 commander pros that don't work. Funny how the Mini could power 3 fans on one splitter and the Pro can't even do that.

I wish I would have seen this thread BEFORE I purchased the Commander Pro. It lasted about 20 sec in my chassis before it burned up 4 channels with 1 fan on each header. Each fan draws 1 amp. Now the question is do I try and repair it or toss it and look for a different option.
