I have a Asus P8Z77-V LK and would like to use the ASUS Fan Xpert+ software for manual adjustments to fan speeds. However, the motherboard only provides 3 fan headers with only one free for an additional fan. I'm planning to purchase the Silverstone Tek Sleeved PWM Fan Splitter Cable (CPF01) (Supports 2 PWM fans from a single motherboard PWM header & One-to-two PWM fan splitter) and two AeroCool Shark 140mm Red Cooling Fan EN55475 (For esthetics, 96.5CFM, 29.6dBA, 800 - 1500 rpm & Fluid Dynamic Bearing) up front. At any point will the fans not have enough power to run? If I add another fan splitter cable and 140mm intake fan will it overload the power rails on the motherboard?
I will run the stock case fans, therefore move 140mm front fan to the side vent for GPU intake cooling. I have one DEMCiflex filter covering the side. Should I get one for the top of the case? With static pressure in mind, is it essential to add another exhaust 120mm fan on top?
