Would it be safe to connect the 2 stock 120mm fans using a Y-splitter to just a single connector of the free fan controller? Apparently, the connectors labeled FAN2 and FAN3 are dead... frown.gif

I never had a problem with Y adapters on AM2+ or 775 cheapo motherboards. You should be ok.

I would check the manual first. It might have the limits of the controller listed in there. Maybe it depends on how the controller is wired, but fractal states it can handle up to 3 fans and I would take that to be that it can only handle one fan per channel. Mobo headers can take two fans typically but a low cost controller like the one in these cases...idk.

I have done so with 2 120mm fans, it worked although I only used it briefly.

Thanks guys.

I took a closer look at the controller and it seems it simply uses a 3-way splitter hot-glued to a 3-pin header controlled by a single circuit, which means I indeed should be able to use a Y-splitter. I sent an email to Fractal just to be sure though.

BTW, were any of your thumb screws overly-tightened out of the box?

I had to use a screwdriver for all of mine. Not to mention one of them was probably tightened by a gorilla that the paint came off. frown.gif

Speaking of fan controllers, i want to ask if somebody has experimented with the one in the Core 3000.Can it handle 5 or 6 fans through extensions? Have asked FD representatives and they say that it cant handle more than 3 fans. Each fan is rated 0,3A. And the transistor in the fan controller is rated to 3A. So it could do it, because if all 6 slots for fans are occupied: 6x0.3=1,8A. And even remains. So, what you say? Ai think its mainly the Amps that are important or im mistaking?

The screws on my Arc were very tight when I got it. Don't think they were that tight, but close. In other news, somehow while I was installing AcustiPack, I managed to warp my windowed side panel and bend the hooks. Was a major pain getting it back on with with the thumb screws.mad.gif
