most fan controllers ive seen only control up to 4 fans but i have 5 80mm led blue fans on my case so how am i supossed to control all 5 when most controllers only control 3-4.....PLZ HELP!!!!
You can attach more than one fan per channel man, you just gotta make sure each channel can handle it. I have 9 case fans all of which are controlled by my Sunbeam Rheobus...ok well actually only 7 because two are jets that have their own controllers, but the point is I have a Vantec Tornado on channel 1, 80mm and 120mm running on channel 2, 3 80mm's running on channel 3, and 2 80mm's running on channel 4....the Sunbeam Rheobus has a rating of 20watts per channel whereas most only have 15-18 so as long as you don't try and push it to much you can attach more than one fan without problems.
