Quick question on connecting two PWM fans to the same motherboard header. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I should have said to scrap "PWM", i'm talking about 3 pin case fans.
I actually need the same principle as the product above, but for 3 pin fans, so i'm able to connect two case fans into one header on the motherboard.

Much obliged.

You should have started a new thread asking for a "Y" splitter for 3pin fans. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Oh! Wait! You didn't know it's call a "Fan Y splitter". doh.gif

Google "fan y splitter" thumb.gif

I use one kind of Y-cable, because my first specimen endured more than 400 fan changes without any appreciable wear. It has two rpm-reporting wires, so to make it behave properly I cut one of those wires near the plug end. I then connected the loose rpm reporting wire to the rpm wire I had cut off a Scythe adapter. Now I have a Y-cable that can split the gnd, 12v and PWM wires to a pair of fans, and report on their rpm's separately to the motherboard. And it still works with no complaints.

 

I have used many Y-cables, and this is the best. For $2.99 and free shipping it is a major bargain. Bless SVC.
