these are very useful - i have 2 of them in my rig
because my 5yo mobo only had 3 fan headers.

i use 1 to make my cpu fan a push:pull.
i use 1 to double the fan area elsewhere.
these work on both analog and pwm fans.

Does each fan receive half speed, because the power sent to each of them is split in two? Or am I confused by how this would work?

If you use this with 3 pin fans they would both run at full power / full speed or if you use 4 pin PWM fans you can control the speed with software and both fans can run full speed or whatever you set it at

These appear to be linked in parallel so they should run at the same speed but pull more amperage from the place they are plugged into.
If they were connected in series then they would pull the same amperage but run half as fast.

Ah, I see. Forgot about the difference between parallel and series.

I saw the comment about using a pwm fan to regulate a 3-pin, and had never considered that. My schooling had taught me that the fans should be the same make and model to insure that they both stay spinning, or that one fan doesn't get power outside of it's normal operating conditions. I suppose if they are same brand, it would be ok.

I do love these guys for itx builds; I appreciate the post!

I just built a new rig with 6 fans. I have 3 headers on my mobo. After a little research I opted to buy a fan hub which is powered by SATA, can accommodate 8 fans and only plugs into 1 header. The fan hub supports controlling the speed of the fans from the mobo. However, on my gigabyte mobo they would constantly run full speed no matter what I changed in the BIOS. Google was not much help. I did however eventually stumble over a post (after days of looking) that indicated gigabyte boards would not be able to control fan speed via the hub. Long story short - I bought 3 splitters and utilized all 3 headers on my board for the 6 fans. I can now control the speed and my PC is much quieter. I shared this in case anyone else has similar issue.

I don't think this is a slickdeal. Let me explain: you can buy this on ebay for less than $1. Here you only get rebate of $4, but you have to pay taxes on the $4 and one stamp and spend the time to do the rebate which would make the final cost very close to 94cents on ebay. If you have a job, it's not worth doing rebate for $4. Basically, you are better off buying this on ebay for 94cents.
