    I guess you can buy a regular splitter and put in the PWM adapter.

    I did consider that but I already have the supplied splitter with the PH-TC14PE plugged into the adapter and I don't want to have to connect yet another splitter incase it puts unnecessary strain on either the adapter or the fan header.

    Running 2 fans on one adapter and 1 on another will means fans will not all spin the same speed. Phanteks says it's safe to run 3 of their fans on one of their PWM adapters

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Startech-inc...3-pin+splitter

    Buy one of these and plug into the PWM adapter.

    once i get my cooler installed i will post it to instagram and send it to you brian.. i have a knack at taking computer component glamour shots

    Well, thanks for the replies, however, I did notice on other forums that owners of the PH-TC14PE have been able to get a spare PWM adapter from Phanteks support department, mostly for those with the early version of the cooler but I thought that they might at least have the adapter for sale as a separate item. I'm going to try to email the company and see how I get on.

    You need to run on adapter to 3 fans or 3 adapters for 3 fans to keep all fans spinning same speed.

    I understand what you are saying. To clarify, the mobo I'm using has several different PWM headers. I don't need the fans to all run at exactly the same speed. Just react to the temperature and manage as the BIOS/OS sees fit. As a stop gap measure, due to the tone of the noise of the fan at full tilt annoying me a bit, I've decided to use the supplied resistor to slow the fan down to a more tolerable volume. However I will keep your advice in mind if Phanteks doesn't give me a reply, positive or other wise. Just find it strange that they haven't even sent out an automated acknowledgement message. Maybe the guys over there are busy?

    My thanks to Brian and all those at Phanteks support. Got the new PWM adapter and it works brilliantly. Thumbs up for their support.
