Hi guys,

I'm building my pc and couldn't quite find a thread similar to my issue exactly, I have a MSI X470 gaming plus motherboard with 2 case fans and the triple pack Corsair LL120s so 5 fans in total, the 120s are 4 pin and the case fans are 3 pin, my motherboard has 4 fan headers, how can I connect all 5, as I don't want to split the Corsair fans as I'll lose control, and the only fan splitters I can find are 4 pin, or 3 pin to fit a 4 pin fan, I also don't really want to run it of the PSU either, if I'm missing something feel free to call me an idiot, I am a novice

Thanks in advance

The only way would be a fan splitter, there's no real way around if it you intend to use 5 fans on a mobo with 4 headers, your only two options are the splitter, or buying an entire new motherboard that has 5 headers :/

Is this your board?

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]
1 x 4-pin CPU fan connector
1 x 4-pin PUMP fan connector (supports up to 2A)
4 x 4-pin system fan connectors

Are you using both the pump and CPU fans for your cooler? They can be used with any fan.
