Resister cable on a fan header splitter.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I just baught some SP120 performance editions. I baught them to put in push/pull on my hyper 212 Evo but like a noob I forgot they were not PWM fans... I don't have a fan controller yet, but I do have a few resistor cables from some Coolermaster Jetflo fans I have. Is it ok to put this cable onto the fan header on my motherboard and into the fan splitter to control the speed of the fan or is this a big no no? It's just a quick fix for now.

Just plug the fans into the mobo and use the bios to adjust fan speed.

haha, I dont feel all that bad now lol. I had to change the fan on the Hyper 212 evo, as i had it facing down (Not my choice the CPU fan mounts are just orientated that way) and the cheep sleved bearing was making a god awful buzzing because of it. Kinda rushed into it without thinking PWM over still I have a much quiter and cooler PC now!
