The only problem with that bottom unit, is that the RPM signal is being sent from all 8 fans, really screws with the PWM function.

My solution to that was to remove ALL but ONE of the RPM pins from the block so that only 1 rpm signal was being sent, then everything worked perfectly.

You should also look for one of pwm splitters that has a pass thru PWM end for the board and a molex for the power, so that the power isn't coming from the port on the board!!

I tried to find a PWM one that was powered by a molex, they don't sell just the controller, but I'm guessing that were just supposed to use a 3 pin instead.
and when you mean the power is coming from the board, are you thinking that this splitter is powered by the board? it is powered by the 4 pin floppy cable from the power supply.

Pure speculation though

Although, I did find this bad boy, molex powered PWM

Swiftech also makes an 8 way PWM splitter powered by molex. I'm using one in my 540.

You might read the description better, that's a 4-Pin PWM fan header for the power bub. I've use THE exact same power splitter, even bought it from FCPU.

Here is the exact description from the website:
ModMyToys 4-Pin PWM Power Distribution PCB is the perfect organizational solution for hard core modder's, water cooling enthusiasts and other power users that use a large amount of cooling fans in their systems or servers. Why use clumsy Y splitters that just add to cable clutter when you can have a clean point to distribute power to all your 4-pin PWM fans? These small PCB's are made of the highest quality and include and easy to install preinstalled black mount rail and Velcro strip. This allows you to mount virtually anywhere in your case including all those hidden places modder's like to route their cables to. For those that want the best look these have a black PCB and connectors. So, eliminate all those extra cables and install the ModMyToys 4-pin PWM power distribution PCB to be a Pro!

Input Power: 4-Pin PWM
Output Power: 8 x 4-Pin PWM


Notice the last two lines.

would make sense why I've never noticed the molex connector on the grid

I just always wish I could actually use that wire for something.

Yeah, I had to fab my own cable for mine, needed the RPM/PWM wires to go to the motherboard, and the power wires to go to PSU. Pretty easy to make, just pissed me off. I wish they included the wire for it.

Would be kinda cool to use a molex power adjuster with one of the molex fan powered distribution blocks.
I definitely want to try and get this block just to test it out.



and also one of the scythe grand flex fans



Fan Speed: 2,000 rpm
Noise Level: 34.5 dBA
Air Flow: 76.6 CFM = 130.1 m³/h
Static Pressure: 3.20 mmH²O / 31.38 Pa

or the adjustable one

Fan Speed: 600 ± 250 rpm ~ 2,400 rpm ± 10%
Noise Level: 13.5 ~ 34.5 dBA
Air Flow: 24.2 ~ 96.8 CFM / 41.1 ~ 164.4 m³/h
Static Pressure: 0.28 ~ 4.55 mmH²O / 2.75 ~ 44.62 Pa

assuming they ever are in stock @ FrozenCPU

You might want to read some of the reviews on those grand flex fans if you haven't yet, every review I've seen has not been favorable at all. I'm still waiting to hear who Nidec Servo finds to market the Gentle Typhoons for them since they own all of the rights to them.

I´ve got one lying around, too.
Unfortunately it doesn´t work with Corsair PWM fans. frown.gif

Just thought I´d throw that in here.
