If you plug normal 3 wire fans into a PWM splitter all the fans will run at 100% and all your aquero will get is an RPM signal.

Maybe you already knew that but I just wanted to say just in case. If you go the PWM route it is a lot less heat inside of the fan controller and uses none of the controllers wattage limit.

I know that.. thanks for the info though.. thumb.gif

I'm still not sure about the fans. heck, I haven't even bought the case and water cooling components... in fact I might get 2x GTX 780 first, stay with air cooling until I have enough cash for the water cooling later this year. tongue.gif

but if I were to buy it now, I think I'll get either Corsair SP120 (PWM version) or Noiseblocker e-Loop (PWM version).
