ASUS Z270-A + 5 NZXT HUE RGB FANS questions

Hi all,

In my next build I'm planning to use an Asus Z270-A motherboard + 4 NZXT HUE RGB 120mm fans + 1 NZXT HUE RGB 140mm fan.

I read that this Asus Z270-A motherboard has 6 4-pin PWM-fan connectors.
Does this mean I'll be able to control these 5 fans (speed) from my computer, as opposed to always have them go full power (because of my simple case fan hub) ?

Or will I have to buy a NZXT GRID+ anyway to do that?


I'll be controlling the leds with a HUE+, so got that covered.

Thanks in advance.

    1| If your fan header is 4 pin and with true PWM control then you should have a 4-Pin PWM fan to take advantage of it. Most fan headers on the board may be 4 pin but they aren't true PWM fan headers. In most cases you can also set if you'd like the fan header to be voltage controlled or PWM controlled.

    2| Yes it's 6x 4pin fan header's


    3| If you want to control all your fans with a simple click or two, might want to invest in a PWM fan splitter/hub like the Swiftech 8-way PWM splitter or the Akasa FP5.

    4| What fan hub are you working with now?

    Thanks for the reply :)

    The NZXT H440 case has a little fan hub in the back, but doesn't look very sophisticated.
    I might be getting the NZXT S340 Elite case instead though, still deciding.

    I would just like to be able to control the fan speed of 2-5 fans without having to go into BIOS (don't have much experience there), would I be able to do that without a fan hub (so by just connecting the fans to my mobo fan connectors?)

    Thanks in advance
