Jesus titty f'ing christ! And i thought i was using a lot with 9. ha ha.

Currently have 17 in my case and its practically silent, and by the time I have finished there will be another 7 or 9 fans in it.

At the moment I have a 480 rad with 8 fans in push/pull on it.

Still need to add, a 2nd 480 rad and a 240 or 360 in with each rad having fans in push/pull.

There will only be 3 fans in the case in the end that don't have a rad attached to them and that is 2 intake fans in the front and 1 exhaust fan on the back.

Still looking at fan controllers but as a temp solution I will be using molex to 3 pin connectors.

Motherboard-based fan control is improving with every generation

Sort of. Abit kinda perfected it with the IP35-Pro, and Intel had some seriously good fan control on some of their media boards, but IMHO the remaining manufacturers are polishing turds. They just use fan control as a marketing gimmick worthy of a few more feature logos and neon graphs on the box. Asus in particular needs to ditch the bells and whistles and go back to basics.

So according to Scythe´s website, the model you mentioned (D1225C12B4AP-14) uses 0.049A, so, times 12v = 0.588W per fan, that said, it has a startup voltage of 3.5V, so I´d say you´d be ok with anything from 6 to 10 of these fans per channel, it´s a question of trying exactly how many in between 6 and 10 can you use. More than that I think you´d be stressing the unit on startups.

So, use 3-4 channels to run your 20 fans, and the other channels for pumps / flow meter.

You do know that adding more fans to a rad is not going cool the water better. Using a push pull rad config will get you probably .5 or 1c extra or even nothing at all. Their are numerous tests and forum talks but I give you one for big radiator configs:
