    I want to plugin 20 fans. On my motherboard (Asus Z10PE-D8 WS) there are 2 cpu fan 4 pin connectors and 7 other 4 pin connectors. So 9 fans are ok, but 11 more. The case is Corsair 900D and psu: Corsair AX1200i. There are 20 fans because 8 will be on radiators.

    Corsair Air Series SP120 PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan (Voltage 7V-12V; Power Draw 0.18A)
    Corsair Air Series AF120 Quiet Edition High Airflow 120mm Fan (Voltage 7V-12V; Power Draw 0.08A)
    Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition High Airflow 140mm (Voltage 7V-12V; Power Draw 0.1A)

    What fan controller and splitters should i buy? The worst thing is that i don't want any controller which is visible form outside in 3,5 or 5,25 bay, it should sit inside hidden like new Corsair Link Commander Mini which will never be available to buy in my country.

    What experience do You have?

    Hooking up multiple fans in series is not difficult. You can easily buy multiple splitters to join them up in series.

    for max airflow and minimum noise, you need a large fan blade - say 120mm
