PWM Fan Splitter For 3-Pin Fans?

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

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...

Hey TPU, You've never failed me in the past, so I hope you can help me now :x I had a few extra bucks to blow so I picked up two Corsair SP120 fans with the colored rings to put on my H80i and replace the static fans. Except I didn't read the fine print and in came 3-pin, non PWM fans....

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?...

Hiya, Newbie to the game of extra cooling and OC. I am added 2 extra sickleflow 120mm fans to my Cooler Master case. (which has MSI MB and i5 4670K). Will be adding H80 Water Cooler later and fan controller before I look at OC. Using google as my friend I have seen that...

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...

PWM fan question

Posted on Sep 05, 2014 10:55 AM,

PWM 4 pin fans, what's the main benefit of these these days, is it for when used on CPU coolers ? because more and more i'm finding BIOS's like those on the latest asus boards are handling fan control really well, and whilst i have always tried to use PWM fans were possible, i'm wondering...

Fan 3 pin Pinout

Foolishly whilst taking off a three pin fan header plug so I could sleeve the cable I didn't make a note of the order and they're not coloured. It is a question of which way round they should be. When I searched I found at least one contradictory picture, used on several web sites for the 3...

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...

Hi, so I got new fans for my pc, my mobo only has two 3 pin connectors, but all my fans are 3 pin connectors (not molex). So I need some way to add more 3 pin connectors or convert them to molex. In total I need four 3 pin connectors, but only have 2. I am confused....

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...

Thought I'd share my recent experiences with two CS requests. Got 4-pin PWM fan replacements for the 3-pin fans that shipped with our two H80i's and one H100i. Mounted two of them on the H100i to see how they are. Amazed at the difference in decibel level at all speeds. It's like a...
