Splicing Fan Wires


Recommended Posts

I want to add a couple more fans to my system (2 92mm on the side, one with a duct to the CPU HS). However, I am running out of connectors on the motherboard (will begin to buy 3 to 4 pin converters). 2 of the 4 MB fan connections support Fan RPM monitoring.

 

Can I splice the monitoring wires of 2 fans together?

 

How about splicing the two power wires of two fans together?

 

Or should I just buy splitters?

 

(Reason for more fans is can't get computer stable over ~1600; CPU temp running 45-49)

I personally would just buy splitters. If you really need rpm montoring you could use splitters on the mobo, but i don't know how much power you'd be sucking up. I'd just buy the connectors for a ps. buy a y splitter cable to split the power and then add the fan splitter cables. That way you can add two fans to each connection withouht losing a place to plug in a device.
