Question 10 QL120 Fans

Hi everyone,

I need some help.
How would I go about wiring in 10 QL120 fans in my Lian Li 011D XL?

I'm planning on using 1 lighting node pro and 2 lighting node cores to wire in all the RGB.
How do I get PWM power to all 10 fans? I'm thinking about fan splitters but I don't know how that will affect customizability for fan curves and all that.

Any tips? All help is welcome.

Unless I'm completely missing the point, the LN Pro and LN Core aren't going to provide the PWM power the OP is chasing, LN Pro offers 2 LED channels to something like an RGB hub, and LN core is RGB lighting controlled via USB instead of an LED channel.

For PWM 3 options come to mind:
1) PWM fan headers on your motherboard, but I doubt you have 10 of those free. Possibly you can use fan splitter cables, but watch your power consumption carefully.
2) Corsair Commander Pro. This will give you 6 PWM headers. Again, splitter cables can work, generally never more than 2 fans per connection, and no more than 8 total.
3) Powered PWM fan hub. I have seen 8 and 10 port versions of these. This is how Zotty powers his wind farm :-)

Probably other options I haven't thought of.
