I just bought the ASUS X99-PRO / USB 3.1 motherboard. I put it into a Corsair 800D case, that has 7 fans. I need to split the fan connectors to handle 2 fans each, and the top 3 fans all together from 1 fan connector. How much power in watts is provided by the fan connectors on the motherboard?
Note: The book explains that the CPU fan connector provides 12 watts at 12 volts, and makes no mention of the power output of the chassis fan connectors.

You guessed correctly. My setups have been 1 fan per motherboard fan connection. Beyond that I wire them to the PSU power. But let's guess you want the fans to regulate with some temperature. For that we add a fan speed controller or splitter. How about this one?
