Hello, I am going to buy a new motherboard and I might as well go nuts with the RGB. But I am not sure about the limits of one RGB fan header can take, and I can't seem to get a definite answer googling. So I am going specific.

I am planning on getting this mobo:

9 pieces of these ARGB fans:

And this ARGB cooler:

So my concern here is if the mobo's two RGB fan headers are enough for a total of ten ARGB fans.

I will definitely use the splitters that come with the ARGB fans but if needed, I might buy a separate splitter with larger capacity. I've seen some RGB splitters online that can connect up to eight fans and some are even up to ten. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

This motherboard does not have any ARGB headers. That means that you won't be able to plug in your fans at all to the motherboard. Fortunately, your fans come with their own controller, which will handle the RGB elements by the press of a button.

I hope this helps!
