Product information: PWM Fan Hub - BlackPart of the accessory range is the PWM fan hub offered here, which is already pre-mounted on the back of the mainboard with the Enthoo Primo, Luxe, Pro and Evolv Micro ATX enclosures. With this retail variant, which also comes with a chic black full cover, can now also be equipped with other brand-neutral cases. The Phanteks lettering on the front panel glows elegantly when the PC is switched on.
The performance of the PWM fan hub is as unique as it is ingenious: this allows up to eight 3-pin fans, such as PWM fans, to be controlled from compatible motherboards. To do this, connect the supplied 4-pin PWM cable to the motherboard connector and connect the SATA power cable to the power supply. Now, up to six 3-pin fans can be connected directly to the hub, two more are possible if you also use the two enclosed Y-splitters.
If the possibility of eight fans is still too little, the connection number can be extended to a maximum of eleven fans with the help of three additional Y cables. Phanteks also has the adapter cables individually. Only FAN port 1 may not be split due to the speed readout. The PWM fan hub is an extremely interesting extension for all enclosures in which many fans are to be controlled automatically.
To ensure that this is done properly even in brand-name cases, two self-adhesive velcro surfaces, which are attached to the hub or housing with the back, To connect both by Velcro. This allows the PWM hub to be flexibly fixed and can even be removed quickly. For installation in Phanteks housings (where such a hub is often already pre-installed), the manufacturer attaches two additional screws.
Note: If the 4-pin PWM cable of the hub is not powered by a PWM connector on the motherboard, the additional SATA power connector can not be a 4-pin or 3-pin port that is voltage-regulated or turn all fans at full speed. By omitting the SATA power connection to the power supply, the maximum load capacity of the PWM hub is limited to a total of 30 watts!
