Help Needed Regarding Case Fans & Lighting Control

I have built a couple PC's over the last couple years and I wanted to settle down on a final build to last me for a long time. I have all the components picked out I'm going to be using but I think I am going to need some accessories pertaining to my fans. As there will be 9 LL120's in this case, what is going to be the best solution for hooking them all up?

A bunch of lightning node pros and maybe a commander pro or two. When you have 9 RGB fans inside your case, it really comes down to how well you can wire and hide all those cables. 

print "Hello World!" ("Hello World!")

With 9 RGB fans you need 2 lighting node pros, and 1 commander pro. Just get some PWM splitters for some of the fan's power cables to fit them all into the commander. You won't be able to control the fan speed on EVERY one of them individually like this, but it saves you from buying another commander pro.

 

Fill 1 lighting node pro with 6 fan RGB connectors and connect it to one of the two RGB headers on the commander. Then connect the leftover 3 fans to another lighting node pro and connect it to the other RGB header on the commander. If it's already full from a set of lighting strips, use one of the USB 2.0 headers.
