Do catch up with what the problem is X-PREDATOR.
Why would Mtom want to spend money on a PWM splitter? The splitter he has is PWM.
He only wants to use his new Phanteks 3 pin fans on his new Phanteks cooler.
Mtom's cooler came with the wrong Y-splitter, a 4 pin PWM splitter (probably what is supplied with PH-TC12DX for it's PWM fans). The PWM adapter has 4 pin plug to motherboard and 3 pin socket. The 3 pin fans plug into the Y-splitter no problem, but obviously the 4 pin splitter plug will not plug into the 3 pin socket. So why not just cut the side of socket so the 4 pin plug will fit onto it.? It's a simple modification and does no damage. It just allows 4 pin plug to fit.
The first 3 pins on PWM 4 pin fan are the same as a 3 pin fan; 1 = Gnd, 2 = 12v or variable voltage, 3 = rpm.. and 4 = PWM signal . And you can plug a 3 pin fan into a 4 pin socket or plug a 4pin fan into a 3 pin socket.. but the end of the socket must be open to allow the 4th pin part of plug into the 3 pin socket housing.
My guess is Phanteks is already sending another PWM adapter and 3 pin Y-splitter. Edited by doyll - 10/9/13 at 4:00am
