I am going to upgrade the fans on my CPU cooler with 4-pin fans so I can take advantage of the 4-pin connector on my motherboard.

The cooler has mounts for (2) fans. All I am finding is 3-pin splitters, like this one, but not a 4-pin splitter.

Thanks for any help!

ronniesonora,
Thanks for the link. I found what I wanted, (2) actually, but all the review were saying you had to cut a wire to get it to work properly, I don't want to buy a product, just to modify it so it works like its supposed to.

I did however find this, but I don't completely see how it works. Do you?

hArLtRoN, 4 pin Molex x 1 (Connect to PSU)

4 pin Connector for RPM feedback x 1 (Connect to motherboard)

4 pin PWM x 1 (Connect to CPU Cooler)

3 pin PWM x 2 (Connect to Case Fan)
There are 4 different ones in the link I gave you. I don't see anything about cutting wires.

Would something like this ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....6812196309 ) work? I've seen some fans that use this kind of connector.

@ ronniesonora,
Thanks. I read some of the reviews and figured it out. It's probably what I'm going to buy :)

@ LadyFitzgerald,
Thanks but that one won't. What I want is the one G41M said.

@ G41M,
I did see that one, but if you look at some of the comments, some people were saying they had to cut a wire to get it to work.

@ All,
I'm going to go with the one I provided a link for because it makes (1) 4-pin header, (3) 4-pin headers that draw its power from the PSU. It will work better for what I want.
