    Having multiple fans of different size and speed really is not a problem. A 800rpm 200mm fan and a 1500 rpm fan at 100% PWM signal with run at about 800rpm and 1500rpm and at 50% PWM signal they will be at about 400rpm and 750rpm.

    I suspect "True PWM modulation" is not the same as having a PWM signal on pin 4. My guess is it is modulated 12v on pin 2 and will not control a PWM fan using a PWM signal on pin 4, but will vary the fan's speed with the modulated 12v power. Some PWM fans manufacturers (Delta or Nidec) say this is bad for their PWM fans.

    If fans can be controlled independently using motherboard fan headers that is the way I would do it.

    I'm actually rather puzzled by the PWM hub too.

    Will I be able to use 4 pin fans with the PWM hub? I've noticed the hub seems to be outputting 3 pins.

    I use 3 fan hubs as follows:

    Hub 1 - (6) Phanteks SP140s on 420 rad
    Hub 2 - (4) Phanteks SP140s on 2800 rad
    Hub 3 - (5) Case Fans

    All work under FanXpert 2 and control is great from 325 to 1238 rpm.

    Are all hubs PWM controlled with 12v power from PSU?

    I bought a Phanteks pro but the hub and the pins are exposed, how do I get a cover for it like in this picture?

    Buy one of the accessory fan hubs. None of the one included in cases are in their own cases.

    That is ridiculous... so I have to risk damaging the pins/cable if I cross over it during cable management? -.- It seems like they were cutting corners not including a cover to the chassis ones.

    I'm sorry, but you would really have to be heavy handed to damage the PWM controlled fan hub while doing cable management .. like an elephant in a china closet.
    Do you damage the header pins on your motherboard doing cable management too?

    I want know how to connect 3 hubs to mobo?

    Because I have idea for upgrade my case: Use PWM Hub and NZXT Sentry 3 fan controller as follow:

    NZXT (4): 2xTop PH-F140HP + 2xBottom PH-F140HP
    Hub (5): 1xFront PH-F200SP + 1xTop PH-F140SP + 1xRear Sharkoon Shark Blade + 2xHDD Sharkoon Shark Blade

    I looking for connect Enthoo Pro's PWM hub to fan controller NZXT Sentry 3. That is possible?

    I need some experience about this build style.

    Sorry if it's stupid idea.

    wow i wrong about sensor.

    So hardware better than software, right?
