molex splitters?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
so ive found a rather strange molex splitter that splits 1 molex into 16 of various types the link is below

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/fract...-from-x1-input

i am going to add some stuff into my computer and i dont know wat type of molex splitter to get
atm i have one of the molex modular cables plugged into my psu an off that i have a controlled fan, front pannel power and an old ide dvdrw drive, i am looking into buying 2 more fans which are also controlable which use molex and i am getting another ide dvd rw drive of a friendand another samsung f3. my problem is should i get the above splitter and plug in my two new fans, my old fan(and front panel power, theres already a splitter on this as nether takes much power) and a sata splitter into it or should i plug in my other modular cable for the sata and use another cable from the psu that provides 2 more molex cables and then just buy molex splitters for anything else that is needed?

That thing looks like a PITA.
No way would I want the bulk of my power distribution to go in and out of the backplane slot area for no reason.

I'd get whatever's more cost effective.

use the modular cables, and usually 3 pin fans come with passthrough molex adapters, keeps everything neater as well. i might be paranoid but i dont like the idea of pluggin that much stuff into one molex. you could lose a lot of stuff if theres a short. its like sticking a million and oen things into 1 plug socket.

I had one for a while and well it's absolute not overkill just pointless since only 4 of 16 connectors are 12v. so it would be rendered obsolete by using one molex y splitter and one 3pin y splitter. One of my least motivated buys ever.
