Looking to make a fan splitter.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I am looking to make a fan splitter for the 4 fans on my radiator so I can control all 4 with one knob on my fan controller.

I was thinking something like this

I'm just not sure how to do it, I've got wire crimps, strippers and wire itself as well as the contacts. (I wish to make this as sleeving friendly as possible tongue.gif)

Thanks

There are several ways you can attack this... some people have talked about this recently. Anyways one way to do it would be cut all the end off. Use a little thicker gauge 12+ and 12- down the center and have each of the fans link up to that. Then you can terminate however you plan on doing this. If you fan controller doesn't have RPM on it and accepts molex I would terminate the 12+/12- onto molex and then terminate the RPM wire with a standard 3 wire fan plug so you can plug it into your motherboard.

To get new pins for molex or fan connectors or to get new molex connectors you can go to performance-pcs.com or for the onestop shop to HOW TO DO IT VIDEOS, the right tools, good sleeving all the pins and connectors you need then check out lutr0n which is a sponsored store on this site.

You'll need a soldering iron as well.

Lutro0 made a video about double wires. The principle is the same if you have multiple splits. Just splice an extra wire into the main wire, sleeving each piece as you go.

I want all my fans on one channel too. I'm going to create a custom y-splitting "box" with ~13 fan inputs (only 1 has rpm monitoring) and one output that goes to a aquaero 5 LT that can be set up run autonomously or controlled over USB/both but any feature rich fan controller will work.

You need to assemble and sleeve it in parts, splicing on the wires for the fan connector at each stage. Also if you get it wrong it means starting afresh.
