Is it possible using an arduino to control more than 4 PWM fan at 25khz ?
I have found this but 4 PWM limited with an UNO
An other arduino, like a 2560 could be used ?
Thanks Best regards Sébastien

Indeed you could use a Mega. See this answer: it explains how you can use Timer 1 on an Uno to provide two PWM channels at 25 kHz. This is the only 16-bit timer on that board. The Mega, on the other hand, has four 16-bit timers: Timers 1, 3, 4 and 5. These timers are almost identical to the Uno's Timer 1, except that they provide 3 PWM channels each. So you have potentially up to 12 PWM channels that you can run at 25 kHz.
Now, look at this pinout diagram. Every pin labeled
n is either 1, 3, 4 or 5, and
x is a letter, is a 16-bit PWM
output. Just take the code from the answer I linked to and adapt it to
the Mega. You configure all those timers in the same way, and you set
the duty cycle for pin
