Wait I have one of those! it splits in to three!
Are you in/near Ventura? I'm helping host a medium-sized lan party fundraiser to help child patients with Cancer, and you should come. Its friday! lol

Also, is that 3-splitter small? Pics?

Im tempted to switch power sources so my left monitor is on a dedicated brick and the right one is running off my rigs power supply.

Wait, so how do you do it? Does your monitor have a 12V input because of the power brick it usually requires?
Also, I think you should switch those liek you said if that cable gets noticeably warm lol
