Hmm, that's a bit of a dilema :confused: You could probably get away with running two fans off one port (if you don't mind taking a chance on overloading it), but it's tricky without being able to find pre-made extention or splitter cables. If we knew what those 6 pin connectors were called it'd be easy to order some and crimp up a custom splitter, but without that the only way is to get the soldering iron out. Paralleling the fans is fine if you leave the rpm signal wire disconnected on 1 of the fans.

I guess the 'proper, non-bodge' option would be to get a hub with more fans, but I guess you already have the lian li hub.



Ya I know, I usually had static green set for this PC. I'd still be perfectly happy with no rgb functionality at all, UV lights & reactive fluid in a custom loop looks so much better imo. Just my personal preference.
I would make my own cable it isn't too hard to do. I run all my fans on PWM harnesses made from old fan cables soldered together.

you can turn the brightness right down and sometimes adjust the saturation, it Can look pretty subtle and be less flashy.
That is exactly what i have been trying to say the whole time:D

the thermaltake version of that hub power 11 iirc, i have it installed in my pc i think, & it is great, plus no molex.
Model?

This?

Why does everyone think RGB instantly means gaudy disco lighting?
To each their own, but lights on a computer case are an eye sore for me. Be it a soft white glow to a bright pink/yellow/green/blue flashing show - hurts my eyes.

I like clean, sleek looking cases (my old Cosmos 1000 - too bad the air flow in it sucked). Usually those types of cases are horribly overpriced for what I'm willing or able to pay, so I tend to find cases that are more functional (my current HAF XB Evo) over aesthetically pleasing to the eyes.

The 1000 can have good airflow, with my old one I converted three of the 5.25 into a 120mm, cut a 120mm hole in the front door so it could be mounted and still intake air, added a 120mm on the side panel blowing on the videocard, and cut holes in the black plastic filter tray at the bottom of the case. I switched to a Lian Li PCA05NB because I wanted something smaller and more functional.

No RGB fans for me. My pc is in my living toom, so i dont need a pc that screams here i am and lights it up like a rainbow.

I go specific for fans with high performance and pwm controled rpm but with no rgb or led light. Thats why i use noctua industrial ppc fans for cpu cooler and corsair ml120/140 for case fans. That work great.

This is my fan setup in an old antec twelve hundred case and the only rgb is on the gpu. Try look pass the zip ties on the. Cpu cooler, had to ghetto mod that part to prevent cooler from touching chipsæt fans belol the cpu cooler. I mounted ekstra fans because in the summer it can get seriously hot in my country and this setup works great.

I think I saw a mouse trapped in a case...

Luckily, it wasn't white, or I'd be worried

The one in the link in my post. I believe its the one in your reply. It has sata power & 10 ports
Found it.

Stupid question: how does it works with the controller, i have thought every Hub has it is own Controller or are they universal?Sorry but i have never used RGB before :)

I've only used Corsair RGB products. I suspect the others are fairly similar. You can run the fans off a controller or motherboard headers, but the RGB functions are controlled separately. Corsair uses a second hub.
https://www.corsair.com/ca/en/Categ...air-Link/CORSAIR-RGB-Fan-LED-Hub/p/CO-8950020

RGB adds some complexity, and each fan has an extra wire to route. Their two and three fan packs come with hubs, singles do not.

The Commander Pro comes with 4 LED strips and extensions, and can control 6 fans. Also comes with four temperature probes.
https://www.corsair.com/ca/en/Categories/Products/CORSAIR-LINK/CORSAIR-Commander-PRO/p/CL-9011110-WW

I get sent to the Canadian site so ignore those prices lol

The Lian Li i want to buy they are available single fan + Hub and controller, just single Fan or a 3 pack + hub and Controller, now i am wondering if i buy 10 single Fans and one single fan + hub and Controller but i plug all fan in the Hub that @jboydgolfer linked would that work, how does a RGB controller control the fans, I mean the signal sent by the controller goes to sensor that the fans has it something like that?

The RGB controller only controls the lighting. Two separate wire bundles per fan.

Got that, but how many fans can i controller control and can a controller control fans in the different Hubs?

In the Corsair ecosystem their controllers can run 6 fans.

Edit: How I've got mine setup:

I've got two fan controllers running nine fans, Six on one, three on the second.




And an LED strip as well.





I can control all nine fans for speeds based on presets or custom curves. With the RGB controllers plugged into the fan controllers I can also control the lighting per channel in the same software.

There's only so much power available via a SATA connector. Corsair limits their controllers to 6 fans because of that. I don't know about 10 fan controllers, might need multiple power connections.

I have always thought that the controller was paired with the hub:laugh:
