Crosshair IV running 2 CPU HS fans from 1 header?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This may sound like a dumb question. But I have a Coolermaster Hyper 212+ and I will be buying these fans to put on it. On the Crosshair IV there is a CPU fan header and a PWR fan header.
Would I be able to use a 3pin power splitter and connect both fans to the CPU fan header? Or will it not have enough power for both fans, forcing me to use the PWR fan header?
I would try it out myself, but I won't be ordering the fans or the motherboard until this Friday. And I wanted to know if I needed to buy a 3pin splitter as well.

Thanks for any help.

You should be able to find another fan port on the motherboard for the extra fan. But you 'can' run it off of one, but I wouldn't.



They dont have to be on the CPU fan header just cause it says that.

Awesome! Thanks Master Chief. You've answered 2 of my questions in the same day.
+1 rep if that's ok?

You can use the CPU fan header for those fans. They need 3.4W each, and CH IV fan headers are rated 24W.
