I am looking at the Deepcool FH-10 which is a fan hub for 10 fans powered by SATA.
While it advertises that it can handle 10 fans, can it handle power hungry ones though?
For instance, I have 5x Fractal Design Venturi HP-14 (0.2A each) and 5x Noctua A14 3000RPM (0.55A each). The Fractal Design fans are not an issue but the Noctua ones might be too much?
I think it should be fine because a single SATA power cable can handle up to 4.5A...but I am not sure how power supply works. For reference I have the CoolerMaster Vanguard 1000W.
You should have no problems with that setup. You'll only draw 3.75 A which gives you a safety margin to SATA's 4.5 A max if you run all fans at 100 percent. That 4.5 A is for the whole SATA power interface, so cables and power supply are all included in that rating.
Running them slower will reduce the power draw.
