post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey. if a plug a fan controller to this: http://www.xoxide.com/modmytoys-pcb8way-block.html

the fan controller is powered by a molex.

wil that give full power to all fans that are plugged in to the splitter then?

and if i had a fan controller for two fans and 2 of those splitters. would it be able to push the 16 fans to full speed?

Thanks smile.gif

yes and no

i need to see the PCB to give a more acurate answer but the short story of it all, as long as the psu is up for the job it should work, however i do tno know what quality the pcb is so you can burn that out with heavy load all the time

should work dude.

it looks like it is just a splitter. however it will nto give an accurate reading of fan speed in the bios

Based on the orientation of the pins alone (without knowing the actual PCB layout), both of those will provide full power to all the ports. On the 8way, if you use a 2-pin cable, it will work fine, but if you use a 3-pin, the power will be split.

Splitter will result in splitting the power but not the rpm.

Yes. Think of it as your PSU supplying more power down the molex for each fan that is plugged into the controller. Enough power to get them all to 100%.
