So I have a Aorus B450 Pro WiFi motherboard, recently I have bought 2 Corsair L20 rgb fans, I have 5 different fan headers I can plug into. The problem is that my NZXT H700 case came with the stock front fans, which all connect in to one fan connector, so one of my fan headers is powering all three of those fans, including the stock rear exhaust and my cpu fan, which adds up to five. I’ve plugged my Corsair fans into the headers and nothing happens, they don’t spin or anything, when I unplug my rear exhaust and plug in a Corsair fan it works, meaning the motherboard can only hold 5 fans at one time, can the Corsair commander Pro fix this? Any help is appreciated. I suck at this.

1 x CPU fan header
1 x water cooling CPU fan header
2 x system fan headers

Your board have 4 headers. One of them is for the CPU fan. 1 is a CPU_OPT fan header which can connect a fan if you want or a second cpu fan cooler and 2 for system fan headers.

Where did you see the fifth one?

Plug your cpu fan in the cpu fan header and plug your case fan in the 2 fan headers (You can use splitters to plug 2 fan on 1 fan header)
