Default Sunbeam Rheobus - 2 Fans on 1 Channel

I finally decided to get a fan controller for my Antec 900 to control my 4 Yate Loon 1350rpm's. I wanted to know if it would be ok to run my 2 intake fans on 1 channel just so that they will spin at the exact same rpm (OCD). I already added in a 3pin y-splitter to my order since they were dirt cheap. Not quite sure how much power each fan requires, but the Rheobus can have up to 20watts per channel.

Thanks guys

Two of those YL's will pull maybe 10W total at full speed - definitely no worries. Although make sure only one of the rpm wires goes back to the unit if you want accurate rpm readings.

Got 3 YLs on one channel and 2 on another one and it has no problem making them spin.

this yl use 0.3a, so 0.3x12= 3.6w.... 20/3.6=5.55

in fact, you can run 5 yate loon(any who run with 0.3a) on 1 chanel

I got my Rheobus and it came with a few cables. 2x molex to 3pin, 1x molex splitter, and 1x 2pin female to 3pin female. What exactly is the last cable for?
