I am looking to keep my computer wiring really clean and I was wondering will I have a problem putting 3 of these fans on one fan header then another 3 on another fan header on the EVGA Z390 Dark. Fans I am using listed below. I am kinda nervous ill break or burn out the motherboard. I am looking to use a 3 fan splitter. I was going to set it up that the bottom 3 fans would run of a 3 fan splitter on the bottom header and then the 3 on the side of the case would run off a 3 fan splitter on the side header.

    From the Z390 Dark Manual pg 43:

    The headers have an absolute safe power limit of 2 Amp @ 12 Volts ( 24 Watts )

    If I am reading your fans specs correctly they are listed as drawing .14 Amp so I would think you are fine.
    I would also suggest you wait for someone more knowledgeable on electronics than I to verify as well.
    The specs on the fan listed it with a comma rather than a period ( 0,14) so not sure if that means anything different.

    For your motherboard per fan header is 2 amps (2.00amp)
    I think it is '0.14' amp x 3 = 0.48 amp for three NF-A12x25 fans it max current 100% speed fans but I sure you will use smart fan will be fine!
    Depend on all fans draw different amp if it is 0.50 amps it can up to 3 fans is safe = 0.50 x 3 = 1.50 amps if four fans I wouldn't put four fans it may damage!

    I just use a powered fan hub - takes the load off of the MB & you'll only need to make one header connection to the MB for up to 8 fans

    Yes you can! You have 7 Smart Fans on your motherboard. You can use Chassis fans for your cooler case with 3 fans or 4! 
    Just remember you need check what AMP per fan x how many fans for one header ...your motherboard have 7 fan headers is 2 amps per fan header.
    Hope it help you

    The powered fan hub can be connected to any PWM header on the motherboard outside the CPU fan header?

    I do this with the swiftech 8way Pwm splitter for the same reasons. One for each radiator. Love this type of setup.

    This! don't every us the fan headers on the MB other than for control PWM speeds or reading RPMs
