The power is consistent enough for a hard drive. Some fans and a pump should be no problem. You can get PWM splitters almost anywhere. Just make sure the one you get has the molex power cable, and also make sure that the slave fans only have three wires and not four. Some manufacturers get that wrong.

As SkateZilla mentioned though, you can overtax your motherboard if you draw too much current from a fan header. A couple of Corsair fans on a splitter would likely be fine, just check the current draw of the fans and verify that the maximum power output of the fan header can handle it. Most fans are no problem in singles, but if you start adding multiple fans you should use the molex power option.
If you build your own splitter be sure the tac line only goes to one fan (the "master" fan). If each fan returns a tac signal on one line, they get added together and the motherboard will no longer be able to tell how fast the fans are going. Of course, the disadvantage to a pwm splitter is if one of the slave fans starts going bad the motherboard will not be able to report it because they are not returning a tac signal. So check your fans once in a while and keep them clean. Or just use separate headers on the motherboard and each fan will report it's speed.

hey I'm actually revisiting this post because every AIO I've seen talk about is different from the one that I have.

I'm using the H100i v2 - on this particular model the pump plugs into the CPU fan header, and from the block/pump there is a splitter coming from that for the 2 fans. Therefore its safe to assume the CPU fan header is supplying power to the pump as well as 2 fans.

I barely understand how electricity works; the constant 12V supplied by the motherboard is being given to the pump - is that saying that the pump also has to provide 12V of constant power for the 2 fans?

Does the H100i v2 not also has a SATA Power cable plugged in?
That supplies the power..

It must have. The H100I V2 also uses the Corsair link, so therefor it must have at least a USB connector for the link software. So that's two. There is no way they would run two fans plus the pump from the CPU fan headers. That could overtax the header and ruin the motherboard. I haven't installed that particular model but I bet if I google it I would confirm it has USB, CPU and power connectors. I did look it up on Corsairs site but I didn't locate any connection instructions. Check the instructions that came with it.

It only has the USB and CPU fan connector
post #27737 of 28311
Since I have that cooler at home but not unpacked you really made me unpack it.

And you are right, only USB and 4-pin pump/fan header.
No extra SATA power plug.
I must have mixed that up with a different Corsair cooler.
Sorry.

So it gets power over USB connection and the 4-pin.
Man those hoses are stiff..

So now we know that, indeed, it looks as though the two fans and the pump are all being run from the CPU fan header. This seems like too much of a power draw to me. The two fans may take up to an app at full speed and the pump power would also have to be factored in.
I doubt that USB header is being used for power since it's only 5v. I doubt they have a 5v pump, although anything is possible. Still, the cable going to the CPU header could be unplugged and, using a pwm splitter, you could plug your fans into the CPU header and the remaining cable into a case or power fan header if you so desired. This would allow you to control the fan speeds in BIOS if you wanted to, or use your motherboard software for controlling the fans.

I went onto the Corsair Forums and asked

Here is the quote:

ITS NOT A OFFICAL
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The H100iV2 get's it's power from the 3-pin fan connector that you should plug into the motherboard CPU_FAN header. It needs a constant +12 volts and uses <= 1.0 amps.

Note that you must disable fan control for the CPU_FAN header in the BIOS so it get's this.

The 4-pin USB connection is just used to control the H100iV2.

So yeah 12V over CPU_FAN.
