I have 30¢ splitters and noctua ones (they look identical to what you posted....but i think they're slightly longer). I don't see why would you use one over the other based on quality.
I'm using cheaper ones because they are 2.5x the length of the noctua and i can route them where i want, and the noctuas are sitting in the box.
Extensions should be 30cm, splitters 15cm.
I need enough quality to ensure no problem like lost contact on some pins, etc. Which I had expirienced on cheap ebay cables, along with other problems. And now, trust me, it is not worth to cheap on that things.
One time I get Y splitter from ebay with rpm pin on both connectors, imagine that.
I would rather plug quality extension into quality extension than risk using any cables and expirience problems like before.
Y splitters will be used for Noctua 120mm Industrial 2000rpm PWM, three on top, and two on door (optional), Cooler Master Cosmos II case. Exactly these fans draw only 0.1A, but anyway, I invested much into fans and cooling so I really would like to complete build with quality cables.
