Fan Spliter Doubts

So, i recently realised that my s340 case had only 2 exhaust fans and no intake fans at all. I don't know how my gpu has survived till now. My motherboard is the Asus Prime B350-Plus and it only has 2 fan headers and one Cpu fan header which are in use. My motherboard also has a rgb fan header. So if i plug a new fan into the rgb header, will it run? I am also aware you can use a fan splitter, but the only one available in my country is the cooler master R4-ACCY-RGBS-R2. I am worried about 2 things i)That it only works with rgb fans and does not power the fans to work but only the rgb ii)If it does power the fans and the RGB through the Rgb header or the normal fan header, will the motherboard be able to output that much power to the fans. I Have 2 of the extra rgb fans and have one old nzxt fan with now rgb, so how will i be able to change the color of the rgb?

The Cooler Master R4-ACCY-RGBS-R2 you mentioned is only for RGB it can't power your fans. What you are looking for is either a Y fan splitter or a fan hub.

What Country are you shopping from?

If you plug in a regular fan into the rgb header it probably wont do anything. as far as the motherboard power goes it should be able to handle the power draw. And you might be able to make a custom fan splitter with a soldering iron and wire. and rgb fan splitters should work with pwm fans

RGB fan header does not exist, these two function cannot coexist. What Asus mean is an RGB header meant for controlling the RGB lights on a fan, of which you can use it for something else freely anyway.

 

For spinning the fan blades, you will neee a pair of 4pin PWM splitters. Make sure the sum of current ratings connected to each splitter (which each plugs into say, the case fan header) doesnt exceed 1A.

 

For RGB, the splitter you linked should work.

I live in Kuwait. I could get it from amazon but that will includ shipping cost so I was looking for something local. Anyway I might just get it from amazon seeing as i can’t use the rgb one I have written

Its bit odd that you can get rgb splitter, but not fan splitter. Its usually included in premium fan packs and with most CPU coolers.
