PWM Fan Splitter For 3-Pin Fans?

Posted on Jan 22, 2014 10:31 AM, Hardware Canucks - Air Cooling | www.hardwarecanucks.com

I have two Gelid PWM fan splitters that I have lying around.
If I cut the PWM wire on the splitter could I not use the splitter as a regular 3-pin splitter to control speed off my fan controller?

Undecided on PWM or 3-pin fans. Which will spin slower?

I have a Fractal Design Node 304 and would like to get new fans. This case has a fan speed controller for 3-pin fans that will allow 5V/7V/12V settings. When PWM fans are at their lowest RPM setting is it less than a 3-pin fan at 5V? I'll be looking at the Noctau Redux fans and they have...

3 x splitter for 3 pin fans

Posted on Jan 14, 2014 12:54 PM,

Hi guys Any idea where to get splitters for 3pin fans, i need those that split into 3x for 3 pin fans. Bought the asaka 5 way splitters, but it was meant for 4pin fans, so no use. Will the corsair 120 high performance (3 of those) "overvolt" a single header on my motherboard?...

Help. Trying to control non-PWM fan speeds.

Posted on Aug 06, 2014 5:38 AM,

Hey guys. I'm trying to reduce the noise of my PC by slowing down the RPM of the fans in the case. I thought I had a solution figured out, but i was wrong. The case I'm using is the FT02. The AP181 fans are only 3-pin fans, but on my mobo, I was able to control one of them through the...

3-pin vs. 4-pin fans

Posted on Jun 25, 2014 7:34 AM,

Hi all! I’d like to upgrade of my computer case [stock] fans to quieter and maybe even better performing ones and probably replace my CPU cooler fans just to match others (color, design). Now there are fans with 3-pin and 4-pin connectors (with PWM control) but the majority comes with 3-pin conn...

3-pin and PWM Control?

Posted on Aug 25, 2014 3:09 AM,

Posted by mrluckypants96:Here's a bit of a question that a quick google search didn't solve. Can a motherboard, in this case a EVGA Z97 Stinger, control both a 4-pin (PWM) fan and a 3-pin fan at the same time? Or is it limited to PWM control or voltage control exclusively?...

Custom PWM fan controller

I wanted to show off the custom PWM controller that I designed to control 3-wire fans. It runs 2 fans from a single PWM signal and is capable of running extremely high current fans. I am using it to drive my Zalman CPU cooler and a 1.3A Orion 120mm hi-velocity fan. It was designed...

Hi guys, I am about to get Vanguard B85 but have some questions. This board has 4 4-pin chasis fan connectors and features "Thermal Radar Core" to control each fan individually. But I'm wondering what if I plug in 3-pin fans? Can fan speed still be controlled depending on...

Hi, I've got a motherboard which only has one system fan header but I need to connect 2 case fans up which I can do using as case fan splitter. However the 2 case fans are different. Both are 80mm and are 12V fans but they differ in other ways. That is the rpm speeds are a bit different, one runs...

Difference between vga 2-pin and case 2-pin fans?

Posted on Jun 15, 2014 6:40 AM,

Is there a difference in the connector of these two types of 2-pin fans? I believe there is, because i am trying to replace a 2-pin case fan of a noisy hi-fi system, i thought a case 2-pin fan would do, but the connector is different. I could not find the model of the original fan, but it seems...

Defective Tach-monitoring on CHA_FAN2

Posted on Jan 31, 2014 1:49 AM,

This had happened before with an old "Springdale" 775 mobo. I'm only guessing that the Z68 boards bridged the gap between 3-pin and PWM ports. I've got now four fans: CPU on PWM, exhaust on 3-pin CHA_FAN1 also thermally controlled. The other two fans are currently powered by...
