I want to plugin 20 fans. On my motherboard (Asus Z10PE-D8 WS) there are 2 cpu fan 4 pin connectors and 7 other 4 pin connectors. So 9 fans are ok, but 11 more. The case is Corsair 900D and psu: Corsair AX1200i. There are 20 fans because 8 will be on radiators.

Fans:
Corsair Air Series SP120 PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan (Voltage 7V-12V; Power Draw 0.18A)
Corsair Air Series AF120 Quiet Edition High Airflow 120mm Fan (Voltage 7V-12V; Power Draw 0.08A)
Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition High Airflow 140mm (Voltage 7V-12V; Power Draw 0.1A)

What fan controller and splitters should i buy? The worst thing is that i don't want any controller which is visible form outside in 3,5 or 5,25 bay, it should sit inside hidden like new Corsair Link Commander Mini which will never be available to buy in my country.

What experience do You have?

It'd be helpful to know which country you do live in, so we can poke around at what's locally available.

I think that something like these might work.

Thanks for help. I choose to buy 2x NZXT Grid 10 fan hub and maybe buy less fans. I will connect 4 or 5 to mobo and the rest to nzxt fan hub. NZXT Grid has total power of 30W it is 3 per 1 fan. My fans are from 0,96W to 2,16W so it is ok. But this is just hub opposite to NZXT Grid+ (unavailable in Poland) which has software fan controller. So here is my question how can i control speed of all fans or all at once when they are connected to NZXT Grid?

If you want to control the speed you are going to have to get a FanBus, or just limit them to 7V and be happy with that performance.
