i am planning to buy Asus P8Z77-V LK.

and as a case, NZXT phantom 410.

U know u can put 6 fans in this case.(2 fans on front, 2 fans on top, 1 fan on back, and 1 fan on side.) and also 1 fan for cpu.

so i can have 7 fans right?

my problem is that i can see only 4 fan plugs on my motherboard....

so does that mean i can have only 4 fans include cpu cooler?

The included fan controller will power the included fans. This means you can add 4 more fans which will be powered by the motherboard. Any additional fans will have to be powered by the PSU

Yes that's right. The fan controller will need a 4 pin molex connector from the PSU. It will take up to 4 fans by means of a 3pin connector. Any other 3 pin fans you can attach to the motherboard for a total of 8 fans.
