Default 3-pin Fan Splitter (3-way)

Hello, I'm looking buy a 3-way 3-pin fan splitter.

Everything I find in Canadian retailers (well, just NCIX and Daz so far) are only Y splitters (only 2 fans!)

I'm hoping someone has a spare 3way splitter for sale or could possibly point me in the right direction to find a retail.

Thanks!


One other question is..
If my 3 fans are all same and rated at 0.25amps, would my kaze master ace (which is 1amp per port max) be sufficient to run all 3? I would assume yes, based on the numbers, but just want to make sure.
Thanks again!


Edit: Can I use 2 Y-splitters and link them to make 3 fans connect? Would changing fan speed on the fan controller affect speed the same way on all 3 fans?

Hey thanks, that might work!

I am wondering though, it seems only the blue wire from each 3pin fan header will actually go to my fan controller.

Will that provide the power to the fans - also fan speed control? (As I don't intend on using the 4 pin PSU connector)
The one green wire from one of the fan headers = RPM monitoring?

If that's so that's what I want!



Edit: Also $7 shipping Too bad NCIX does not carry Rosewill stuff to PM heh

I think you'd be better off if you PM two of these: http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=31...ufacture=Works

I've used one of them with a fan controller with great success. So I don't see why linking a second one together to make a 3rd port wouldn't work just as well. As long as the controller can handle 36v you're fine. You will also like the pm.

As long you plug the second one into the Black, yellow, red, plug it should work fine.
