Phobya - 4 Pin Molex to 6 fan Splitter

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi All,
Hoping for some help and info about this....
Little PCB fan splitter from Phobya, 4 pin Molex to 6 x 3 pin fans.
How many fans could safely be run off each header ?
OR more to the point - how many amps and or watts per header.
I can't find info on them - and they are supplied with absolutely ZERO info.
Cheers thumb.gif

Well since it is not a fan controller just a fan splitter on a PCB, so I think there is no wattage limit.

Edit: I hunted a round and I still could not find any info on it.

Edit 2: looked on their website. . . nothing mad.gif, I would go with there is no real limit what fans you using?

Mam74, you need to get REAL... of course there is a REAL LIMIT... and when that is exceeded the hub will overheat and short out.

Fast_fate, it isn't total number of fans as much as it's the total amps / watts they pull. That said I would hazard to guess it's safe to use a couple amp total load.. but that's only an educated guess.

I would load perhaps maximum of 2A per port, and with 12V that's 24W, and with 3W fans that's 8 fans per port. Of course you can test by yourself, incrementally add more load and when it starts to warm up, you have your limit. smile.gif

2 amp per header. devil.gif That's 12 amp... 25% of what typical PSU supplies on 12v rails.. Way more than I would think is safe.. by at least 8 amp.

Thanks for all the comments - appreciated thumb.gif
2 amp total works for me.
18 x NoiseBlocker PK2 at .09 amp each
3 fans per header gives a total of 1.62 amps.
This should keep everyone happy - mostly me biggrin.gif
Cheers

If anyone at some stage down the track finds any info on this fan header would be great if they can post it here.
ATM I can't find it on the Phobya web site - annoying as it is redface.gif
Thanks Everyone thumb.gif
