How to connect D5 Next Pump to multi pwm fans?

Thursday, April 30th 2020, 6:08am

Hello everyone,
My rig has 9 PWM-fans.
As I know, the D5 Next Pump could only afford 25 watts for PWM-fans. :)
I think it should be 5 PWM-fans. :S
The question is how to control the all 9 PWM-fans only by D5 Next Pump? ?(
Is there any other thing I shoud buy? ?(
Looking for your replys.

Splitty9 Active could be helpful.

Splitty9 Active could be helpful.
Thank you for your reply.
For 9 fans,I think the total watts should be far more than 25 watts.
Can the D5 Next Pump afford that? ?(
Could it affect the D5 Next Pump for long period using? ?(
How could I connect the D5 Next Pump to the Splitty9 Active? ?(
Thank you very much.

The D5 Next has Overcurrent Protection on the Fan port.
If your Fans use too much power, the Pump will disable the Fan connector.

The Splitty9 Active has a SATA Connector to provide more Power to the Fans.
Connect the D5 Next Fan port to the Input marked on the Splitty9 Active.
The PWM Signal is distributed to all 9 Fan Ports on the Splitty9 Active.
