GT-2150 fans on low noise adapter

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have two gentle typhoon 2150 rpm fans and I'm looking to reduce the noise. I'm using the z97-e itx/ac motherboard so I only have one fan header; I'm using a molex fan splitter to power the two fans. I have the following questions :

  1. can I run these fans on a low noise adapter and, if so, which? I'm not very savvy on the fan voltage stuff
  2. I'm using an ncase so I'd like to remove the molex cable for cable management reasons. I assume running the two fans using a y splitter of the motherboard is not an issue.
  3. if I use a y splitter, should I connect the splitter to the low noise adapter to the motherboard? Or use two individual adapters for each fan to connect to the y splitter?
Thanks in advance

The answer to all 3 of those questions is yes.

1. You can use the LNA (from Noctua I presume), as the LNA is just a resistor.

2. Yes, the AP-2150 uses only 1.5W per fan, so that's 3W so a Y-splitter is fine (about 0.25A).

3. Yes. Motherboards can do up to 1A. Past that, I would not do use a header.
