yes i do im using the fan controller as an example if i were to use the stock fans 1 rear and 1 intake i would wanna put 2 on top of the case so the motherboard would be filled up and if i wanted a 5th fan on the side as well without removing any fans could i do it with the help of the fan controller?

i think what he's asking is... if the fan controllers fans connect to the motherboard?
if the case has a built in fan controller then the fans in the case that r connected to that controller will not connect to the motherboard. only fans u add will connect to the motherboard.
correct me if i'm wrong. was'nt sure how the question was meant

fan controllers dont add extra fans they just controle them(some do i think), if you want more fans then get a molex to 3pin/4pin adapter from ebay or amazon. NOTE. the fan controller wont controle these even if they are labeled as PWM and these will allways run at full throttle so get a low rev/ high airflow fan if you want this

they work in

motherboard > fans(any other fans + cpu)
and
PSU > Fan controller > fans (only for fans that came with case)

if the case comes with its own fan controller then more than likely this controller will control only the case fans and they wont be connected to the mobo.
if its a seperate controller you added then i think the fans that connect to it are powered via molex and the controller has a sensor cable that connects to the mobo. i'm not a 100% on that though as i've not used a 3rd party fan controller
