What skupples said. You can see the sticky backing through the grill, and I think it looks really tacky. I don't look at the top of my case much since it sits on my desk, and the filter actually looks kinda nice...meshes with my overall theme.

Might switch it up though, since like I said, I don't really look at the top of my case. But it's fine as it is now.

Yeah its a bit annoying. I might pony up $30 and order a custom filter from demciflex in south africa. I will make it wide enough to not be visible in the mesh, probly need to add 25.4mm (1 inch) of width to each side. brb sending email now actually.

I'm currently using two of these and they are well made.

Do they work well on your AP-14's?

I have 6 GT AP-15s on them and they work great with the Swiftech adapters but they of course run at full speed, they're mostly silent but very noticeable whoosh of air in the SM8, I think GT AP-14s will be better for movies and my silent rad lower fan rpm goals so I invested more in those.

Was thinking about getting the swiftech splitter to replace my phobya splitter but seems like it wouldnt make differences. I mostly notice the whoosh sound when I only open my side door on my SM5

Why are you guys using PWM splitters to control multiple voltage driven fans?

Because it will still work ok as a 3-pin fan adapter also. They don't need to be used with a PWM fan to provide electrical power and report RPMs. The fourth pin only sends pwm signal to a fan if the fan has that port. Otherwise, it's just like plugging a standard 3 pin fan into your CPU fan header, the fans will just run at full speed.

Sure, it will provide power and report rpms but can it provide voltage to control the fans too?

Yes, if the powering side of the splitter is hooked to some type of voltage control device, like a fan controller or motherboard header that has voltage control.

The voltage control is done via the 12v wire of ANY fan or fan cable. On a pwm fan, the power going to the fan itself is always a full 12v, it's the signal on the 4th wire that regulates the rpm via the fans built in control board.

I didn't think I would need one with a single gpu. I am currently cooling it in a Nanoxia DS6 case with a 140.2 60mm and a 140.2 30mm so I reckon that two 120.3 60mm will be fine.

The copper tube is ordered and the pipe bender arrives next week.
