I am looking to buy a ASUS TUF Gaming Z490-Plus with InWin Sirius Loop fans. I would need about 6 argb fans, and I was wondering if it was possible with said motherboard?
Forgive if it seems like a basic question, it's my first PC build


Thanks!

The board has CPU_FAn, CPU_OPT (will run at the same speed - should only be used for your cooler) and 3x CHA_Fan (Chassis Fan) headers.

Directly, that would account for 5 fans... although if only one on your CPU cooler, you're looking at 3 "case" fans.

That's directly connected though - each header should be able to accommodate a splitter to connect two fans to each.

So 3 headers + 2way splitters = 6 fans (+Cooler).

For the RGB component, I assume they'd either ship with a controller or daisy-chain together to a single motherboard header..... but I can't find much info on them.
