You're confusing me right now lol smile.gif

Can i use
4x http://highflow.nl/fans/ventilatoren/120mm-nl/akasa-120mm-fan-viper-yellow-ak-fn059.html
+
1x http://highflow.nl/fans/fans-ventilator-toebehoren/swiftech-8-way-pwm-splitter-8w-pwm-spl.html

to get all 4 fans controlled by just plugging the splitter to the CPU_FAN on the mainboard (i hope i can change rpms with a software or in the bios then? Or the cputemp control them?)

Yes you can do this. Use free software SpeedFan to control.

Swiftech mention that for example that this method can damage Nidec fans.

T-Balancers have been able to do the same thing for like a decade. And IMO it is the most useless function I've seen on a fan controller. I've yet to see fan that didn't sound like poop when using PWM-mode. I've tried pretty much every fan I've ever purchased and they all had horrible motor noise.

It is a good radiator. I have one in my Lian Li and it does very well w/ low speed fans.

I'm using EK-waterblocks (Acetal + Nickel), you mean this here? http://www.highflow.nl/koelvloeistof/toevoegingen/petras-tech-ptnuke-phn-concentrated-biocide-10ml.html

alright, i stand corrected; i see now.... its using two caps to create a pulse/blockwave.... i would expect to see a 555 inthere somewhere

yeah.. it can work... if you have the right fans and dont overload and blow a cap smile.gif
try attaching 11 delta's to it smile.gif
