Controlling 20+ fans - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
So you know, while browsing frozencpu I found that to control 8 fans:http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14665/ele-991/4-Pin_Power_Distribution_PCB_8xWay_Block_MMT-PCB-4-83.html?tl=g47c121s424

But I was wondering I could take a 4pin 3 pin adapter like that : http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9116/cab-174/3_Pin_Female_Standard_Power_Connector_to_4_Pin_Female_Standard_Power_Connector.html?tl=g2c251
to connect the block that control 8 fans to one channel of the fan controller

I'm using two x-stations an two plain performance-pc 8 fan buses.

The x - stations have ports for 12v, 7v, and 5v 3-pins plus four molex for my pumps. The generic buses buses are just 8 3-pins each @12v.

Yes, you could but that's kind of a fugly cludge in my opinion. The mod-right Y splitters like the one you linked to in your first post will do the job if you don't want to make em yourself.

Providing the power adapter matches the picture (and your fan controller is up to it) you could use it to connect the 8 x Way splitter block to the fan controller.

Edit: forgot to add that you wouldn't be able to display fan speeds with those splitter blocks but that may not be important to you.

If you want more "bling", the bitspower X-Stations I mentioned have acrylic bases and LED lights of your color choice and look a lot nicer. I have the X-station up top where my case is windowed and you can see it, and the plain black ones you listed on the bottom where its a mess of tubing, radiators, fans, pumps, and wires that nobody can see biggrin.gif.
