    Done the video showing what you get, 3 pin fan splitter cable. Its works as it should. As mentioned in the video the soldering is not the best on one of the connectors, to have melted plastic dosent look good. But hey, it works and cant been seen really. The connector for the motherboard will also fit into a 4 pin fan header, it just wont support the PWM function on the motherboard.

    I bought two of these to connect four fans to two fan headers on my motherboard. All four case fans are now connected to the two chassis fan headers on the motherboard and I can now adjust the fan speed settings inside Windows.

    Added another fan to my case with the purchase of my H-50 and I didn't want to have it powered from a molex adapter as I wanted it to be PWM. Works perfectly. Wish I'd got a shorter one for cable tidying reasons but that doesn't detract from its performance and great price.

    These cables arrived late, 5 days after order.

    However, they are just some cables so I didn't really care.

    Sadly, these cables aren't sleeved or just plain black, so you'll have to use electrical tape to cover the colors in your case.

    However I do recommend them.

    The splitter wire arrived quickly in a padded envelope.

    First I powered two three-pin fans using this cable, a 5cm and a 12cm. Individually the fans ran fine but wired together the rotation speeds were all over the place. Why? Well of course both fans were reporting an rpm through the yellow tacho wire and at different rates, so sometimes the motherboard thought the fans were running at 5,000rpm, then shortly afterwards at only 50 rpm!

    The solution was to use only one fan with tacho capability. Fortunately I had a 2-wire, 5cm fan on a molex adapter in my old parts box, so I cut it from the molex and wired it to a 3-pin fan plug (the tacho space being left unwired, of course). I used the splitter cable to join the two 5cm fans to the motherboard and it worked perfectly: The three pin fan sets the pace and the voltage controls both fans.

    The splitter cable is about 25cm long so it has been coiled in the case for tidiness, but I'd rather have too much wire than it be too short.

    Just to ticket for connecting extra fans to cope with the ever increasing need for cooling as CPU's - PSU's and Hard Drives get faster and produce more heat. 4 pin fan connections on motherboards seem to be the norm these days. If you only have 3 pin connection fans, that can create a problem. This item will solve any problematic issues with cooling.

    Does what it says on the tin. You can't really complain at only a couple of quid including postage. They would have been better if they had been sheathed hence the 4 stars only. I have 2 of these in my PC as I have 9 fans and needed a couple of extra fan connectors. Seem to work perfectly.

    This is just a cable fit for purpose, we really can't talk about it much here... It did the job of extending a fan cable to a fan header on my server motherboard anyway.

    Twist the full length of the cable to make a triple-pair if you don't want the 3 wires splitting up from each other though. This also keeps the entire cable where you want it in your case.

    Good value if you don't want to assemble your own one anyway.
