what about the sata cable though. It is ok to use one already powering my ssd and hdd. If it is would using this wire lower the rpms of the fans.

It doesn't make a difference whether or not the drives are connected to the same cable. 

The pwm signal from the hub is 12v and will run 3pin fans at max rpm. If you want to control 3pin fans, use a normal fan splitter without auxiliary power instead. 

I bought a Deepcool fh-10 fan hub as i wanted to make sure all my fans were getting enough voltage as before i was splitting the power outputed from 1 header for 4 fans. My fans are 3 pin and this it a sata powered fan hub. I have 2 questions. 1. I wan't to power 6 fans with this, will it be ok to plug it into the sata power cable already used to power my ssd and hdd or should i use another one. 2. Is there a way for me to control these 3 pin fans. I looked this up just now and it says that you can if you have a DC configured header. Idk if I do. I don't mind if they have to run 100% as im very used to this already and they are rather low rpm case fans anyway but it would be great to control them. This is the item. https://www.amazon.co.uk/DEEPCOOL-FH-10-Integrated-Controller-Motherboard/dp/B077YHLDSP . Mb - z370m d3h. Thanks for any help

From the article description.
 

  • If 3-pin non-PWM fans are connected to this fan hub, this fan hub CANNOT give them extra PWM function. They will run at FULL SPEED.

10Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2
