  1. RGB fans

    The Corsair RGB fans will not work with motherboard based RGB controllers they use their own ecosystem via Corsair Link and completely different. The HD120's come with a manual controller for changing the colors and lighting modes but for advanced lighting patterns and software control you will need the lighting node pro. For both lighting and fan speed control the Commander Pro would be what you need.
  2. Noctua makes a really nice manual PWM based fan controller if you want to vary the speed. https://noctua.at/en/na-fc1
  3. Cant find a 19 pin Splitter anywhere!

    It will give three 20 pins and 2 regular USB 3.0, one is labeled as the input from the motherboard.
  4. Cant find a 19 pin Splitter anywhere!

    It's not a splitter it's an internal hub, there is processing and circuity for a hub that determines which sent and receives what data. The same as how an external USB hub works just for internal connections.
  5. Are 4-way fan splitters available?

    In that case for 4 fans it will draw a total of (0.48Amps). https://www.bequiet.com/en/casefans/448
  6. Are 4-way fan splitters available?

    Oh there are two models, @minervx which type do you have?
  7. Cant find a 19 pin Splitter anywhere!

    Sata power, it's needed for so many plugs and devices.
  8. Cant find a 19 pin Splitter anywhere!

    Yes with the expansion card you can plug in all 4 and have them all function as intended. Also it looks like someone has made an internal USB3.0 hub similar to the NZXT unit for USB 2.0. https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-port-Internal-Controller-HB-INTR/dp/B0794V75LB/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1524366531&sr=8-6 https://www.amazon.com/Nzxt-Internal-Controller-Black-AC-IUSBH-M1/dp/B01IFGFTJ2/ref=pd_sbs_147_1?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01IFGFTJ2&pd_rd_r=P0N6M8905TTEVX6516TQ&pd_rd_w=0Kr3V&pd_rd_wg=y2Cbm&psc=1&refRID=P0N6M8905TTEVX6516TQ
  9. Cant find a 19 pin Splitter anywhere!

    Correct you cannot use all 4 ports at once. That splitter is only for allowing one or the other, cause it doesn't have any processing to determine which device is connected.
  10. Cant find a 19 pin Splitter anywhere!

    They make splitters such as these but you cannot use all four USB 3.0 ports at once, only two at a time. If you are wanting to expand the number of available ports you will need a USB 3.0 expansion card. https://www.moddiy.com/products/20%2dPin-USB-3.0-Internal-Header-Y-Splitter-Cable-(12cm).html http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=439&area=en
  11. Are 4-way fan splitters available?

    No it doesn't work like that it uses the same voltage but increases your load or amperage on your header hence the 1 Amp max rating. Looking at the specs it's only around 0.09Amp per fan (0.36Amp Total), at startup it will be more than that but even so 4 Pure Wings 2 fans shouldn't be an issue. https://www.bequiet.com/en/casefans/449
  12. Project Reaper - Help Needed

    You can use the built in fan control system on your motherboard as needed but for third party options there are lots out there, some that are popular the the NZXT Grid+V3 and Corsair Commander.
  13. Are 4-way fan splitters available?

    They're 3 pin so that Silverstone unit will not work. You will want to keep it below the 1Amp rating ideally never past the 0.75Amp amount for proper safety margin.
  14. Are 4-way fan splitters available?

    It depends on your fans if they are 4 pin PWM you can get splitter hubs such as thees: https://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-System-Cables-Black-CPF04/dp/B00VNW556I/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_147_img_0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=41VJHMMGGZ65ZD28940J For 3 pin fans you will need to double check the current draw of all the fans to ensure it doesn't exceed the header's rating, usually it's 1Amp. https://www.amazon.com/CRJ-Blackout-All-Black-Splitter/dp/B072PZ2M7C/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1524364699&sr=8-7
  15. You make it stay by bolting it down. For example just have the piece of wood along the edge as a guide to manually advance the V block against it with the tube.
