Default CM Sniper fan controller issue


I recently received my CM Sniper and I love it. The fan controller is awesome but recently I have been experiencing intermittent problems were the controller is unresponsive. I currently have the 2x 200mm fans, 4x 120mm Yate Loons and the 120mm rear exhaust fan that comes with the case running off the controller. I am wondering if maybe I have too many fans running of the controller and thats why it is sometimes unresponsive?

Thank you

I think your best bet would be to see if its listed on CM's website the wattage rating per channel on that controller. And then see what the rating is per fan.
I know most fan controllers have a limit as to what they can handle.
