  1. Those fans use an extreme amount of current according to the Artic web site @ 12V DC (Norminal) = 0.24A which will cut down the number of fans you can use on one header.

    Since these are DCV 3 pin fans, these are you options ...

    a) use up to 3 fans on a single DCV Mobo header (not recommended)
    b) use up to 3 fans with a Phanteks Fan Hub on a single DCV Mobo header
    c) use up to 3 fans with a Phanteks Fan Hub on a single PWM Mobo header
    d) use up to 11 fans with a Phanteks Fan Hub on a single PWM Mobo header and atatched the provided SATA power cable so as not to overload the MoBo Headers 1 amp ratting.

    e) Use a ModMyToys 3 pin DCV Hub for up to 3 fans on any DCV headers. This is ya cheapest option w/ no cable clutter

    Of course since you are asking about splitters, I assume you want to install more fans than you gave headers for.

  3. If you want to have the bast performance noise ration... start at the top of the list here:

    I these by the dozen

    At 0.14 amps, you can have up to 6 on a single header without using the auxilliary power cable on the hub described above.

    That question wasn't in the original post ...A PWM Splitter for 2 DCV fans ? No, not recommended.

    I do not recommend splitters at all due to poor quality but if you must use one and don't mind the cable clutter, then you must match the splitter type to the fan type.

    This works but I dunno if the MMT hub comes w/ the F x F cable like the phanteks does.

    if you don't care about aesthetics, why not just get the one that's recommended on your original link for the fan you chose.

    look at the "Frequently bought together" part and get both for "Total price: £5.75"


    It would be good if you explained how many fans you want to connect ... you have 3 or 4 fan headers depending on the different sites that listed info .... so, if you don't have more fans than headers, you don't need splitters.
