PC Fan Splitter is the latest way to split the power of your power cable to more than one PC fan at a time. If you have a single power cable or motherboard with one fan output. It will be difficult for you to set up more than one fan in case if you also have a GPU installed. This issue will be more in mini desktop or some famous gaming motherboards. The solution for this issue is PC Fan Splitter.
PC always needs more air to cool it down especially while you are living in warm or hot areas around the globe. For the placement of some extra fans, you need some extra space and power too. This power will be supplied to you through these fan splitters.
If you love the RGB fans and want to install them into your PC, but due to less or no fan space it’s not possible for you to install any other extra PC fan. This PC Fan Splitter will help you there. RGB fans do not require an extra voltage or current. They could be run on the basic motherboard power supplied by the main power cables or built-in board pins.
Sometimes there is only one fan pin on the board and you need to install more than 3 fans. That motherboard may have only one power pin or power supply cable. But if you attach the PC Fan Splitter, this power will be converted further to more fans.
Y Head PC Fan Splitter VS Fan Splitter hub:
There are two types of PC Fan splitters one is the Y-shaped fan splitters and the other is a PC Fan splitter hub. Y-shaped fan splitters are made up of wires having connectors on the endpoints. These may have 2, 3, or 4 fan connections. The other end has a single connector. You can connect this single end to your motherboard pins or to the power cable directly.
This provides stable power to all your attached fans and does not boost or supply extra power. While in the Fan Splitter hub, there are up to 4 connectors in a hub that allows you to connect 4 fans. There is an extension cable to attach this hub with the motherboard of the power cable.
This connector does not support stable voltage or current. Because it supplies direct current to the fans from the motherboard or power supply. In this case, your fans will always run on full rpm. This will create a huge fan sound and noise. To avoid this situation Y-shaped fan splitters are recommended more than splitter hubs.
In the Splitter hub, there is no option at all to minimize the supply voltage. In Y-Shaped, you can run 2 fans on the same fan header without any issue. But if you will use the 4 head-shaped fan splitter, then it will equally distribute the voltage and all the fans will run at the optimum speed. It will not make a loud noise.
These Y-shaped PC Fan Splitter have 3 pins to 4 pin outputs. While you can have only 4 or only 3 pin connectors according to your fan inputs. You can also connect a three-pin fan to the four-pin wire too.
You can find these fan splitters online too. There is also an option for external fan placement in some of the motherboards. But if you do not find any, you can buy the more power boosted splitter hub.
This hub provides more than 10 fan slots at a time. All of these fans are externally connected and you can also extend the wire by connection extenders. These extenders are also available on different online selling websites like Amazon or eBay. You can also check these with their images making it easy for you to purchase these PC Fan Spliter.
