I am currently debating whether or not to go with an i9 10900k CPU or an Ryzen 9 5900x whenever it comes back on stock. However when I am looking for motherboards for both of these CPUs, I have not seen a single AMD mobo that has more than 4x system fan connecters. On the intel mobos that is not a hard to find. Reason why I want more fan connectors is cause my case has 7 fans in total that I would like to fully utilize.

Do most people do just fine using splitters and fan hubs to use more fans with only 4 fan connectors?
I have never done that kind of setup before so I know nothing about it honestly. Is it possible to use 7 case fans with only 4 system fan connectors?

The two motherboards for AMD that I really like are below.

For intels side it would be this one

I would be grateful for any advice or help, it would certainly go a long way for me. Thanks!

If I were you I would go for the MSI MPG

Ya I've always been more of an Intel guy for years now but the Ryzen 9 5900x really seems very impressive and is clearly best bang for your buck right now. It'd be my first AMD product.

Any chance have you yourself used these type of fan hubs or splitters to use more fans? And would you be able to elaborate a little as far as why you prefer the MSI mobo over the ASRock? Just curious on your thoughts if you do not mind.

I have a MSI Mobo it is pretty good and easy to use both in the BIOS and in the program on windows, overclocking is simplify. I have a MPG X570 Edge the pro is amazing but too expensive for me lol. The hub came on with the Case I bought and it has a downloadable software to control colors and types of lighting, the software itself make very little impact running in the background but if you don't like to have it there then you could control any Corsair lights and or the fans from the MSI Dragon hub which also can control fan speed, Ram and CPU OC

I would say, for OC, if you are interested the Asrock bios are better than MSI ones, sometimes MSI have options that don't even apply, which makes it very annoying if you are trying to figure out the oc.
