Nice gadget
I'll get a couple more of these I have room for them
Bad thing about boards with only 1 cpu fan port and 1 case fan port

I'm only using 2 ports on this because I used a splitter to connect 2 fans to 1 twister that I believe is the problem both fans are not using the full 12v I'd bet

Powered straight off of the power supply using a molex adapter from a main power harness with a adapter to a fan connector. The fan connector connects to the end of the box and all other fans or light connect to the sides ports of the hub.

Molex adapter and other small jumpers come with the kit.
When their is power to the hub the front has lights that lets you know its powered. I use three of those hubs in my last build.

You could control the hub voltage with a fan controller powering it. It all depends what the fans amp draw in total is compared to what the fan controller is rated at.

If I used a fan controller I would make sure it was rated at least 20% higher than the total fan amp draw was.
On start up with a lot of fans the amp draw of the fans will peak very high for a instant and then drop down.

A hub also makes it easier to route fan or light wiring.
It made it a lot easier for me to hide all the wires to 14 fans and a bunch of lights. I did have to change the length of some of the harness going to the fans and lights to keep things neat and tidy.
That is why the computer gods made solder, heat shrink and sleeving.

Okay yea I looked at it's bother the hub+ and it said molex
30a max I have no idea what mine is but I did connect 2 of the fans directly to the existing controller and left 1 on the rpm twister and they are running the same speed

I believe it's just the fans are already maxed out at 1450rpm

If you Google your fans and fan controller you should find what their amp draw rating is.

0.18a for the fans
I don't see anything but 12v in and out for the controler

Your controller should have a input of 12 volts.
What you need to know is how many amps each channel of the controller is rated at.

Post a site of your controller. I will see what I can find.

I connected all 4 fans to the controller since the 1450rpm fans aren't all that loud
I just realized the Green led fans there is only one sp140 fan available pretty much why i ended up with them I wanted green so anything else and I'd have to get wind series fans

Any how after messing with it again I went a head and took a picture
All I can say is massive

This is not a fan controller. It is a hub.
