Thread: 4-pin PWM fans to 3pin connectors on hub?

    4-pin PWM fans to 3pin connectors on hub?

    Hello, I have too many fans to only use the motherboard headers so I will need to use the hub. All my fans are 4pin pwm. 4 pin fans can connect to the 3 pin connectors on the hub right? Can i still control the fan speed through the motherboard?

    Yes you can as long as the hub is controlled by a PWM fan header. Have you considered using a PWM splitter or hub with PSU power connecter to PSU?

    Hey there. Thanks for your reply. I am using the Corsair ML120 Pro fans. I don't want to use more than two per motherboard header. I could possibly use a pwn hub if they make them powered I wouldn't have to worry about going over the amperage of the motherboard header right?

    Yes, you can use PWM fan hubs like Swiftech PWM hub, Silverstone PWM hub or Phoyba PWM hub. All use PSU for power and motherboard for PWM signal and to monitor 1 fan's speed.
