Corsair RGB LED Fan Splitter for ALL Corsair RGB Fans (LL, HD, ML, SP, SP-PRO, QL)
First, we did the Fan Hub Splitter. But that doesn't help those folks that have seven fans ... and need a whole new RGB Fan Hub just for one fan. And then we were challenged by the notorious Zotty from the Corsair Forums and Reddit to do something to help these folks out ... to create a splitter for the RGB fans too. Not wanting to back down from a challenge, we had to do it. And here they are ... RGB LED Fan splitters!
This splitter will allow you to connect two RGB Fans to a single RGB Fan Hub port. Each fan will have identical RGB effects and will be configured in Corsair iCUE as a single fan - just like fans that are on a PWM splitter. This gives you more flexibility when wiring up your fans and RGB LED Fan Hubs. As with a traditional fan splitter, one connector has 4 pins - this returns the fan signal from the fan to the RGB Fan Hub - and the other connector has 3 pins - it only takes input values. This allows you to use the RGB Fan Splitter in any position on the RGB LED Fan Hub and still have the chain intact. Note that the 4-pin connector must be connected to an RGB Fan; if the 4-pin connector does not have an RGB fan connected to it, the rest of the ports on the RGB Fan Hub won't receive a control signal. These cables are not sleeved but instead use a high-flex black ribbon cable that is similar in appearance to the stock Corsair cables but is even more flexible, making cable routing simple and taking less space.
Simple, right? Well, there are limitations that you need to keep in mind before buying. First, you'll need to make sure that you limit the number of splitters you use on a single RGB LED Fan Hub based on the type of fans that you are using. In general, you should not exceed more than 120 LEDs on a single RGB LED Fan Hub as you may draw too much current and overload your fan hub. We've measured the actual current usage for LEDs fans and recommend that you keep the limits below in mind when ordering and configuring your Fan Hub and RGB Fan Splitters:
- LL RGB Fans: 16 LEDs each. Limit to no more than 7 fans (112 LEDs) on a single RGB Fan Hub.
- HD RGB Fans: 12 LEDs each. Limit to no more than 10 fans (120 LEDs) on a single RGB Fan Hub. Ideally, keep it under 9 fans for a bit of margin.
- ML RGB Fans: 4 LEDs each. You can use an RGB Fan Splitter on each RGB Fan Hub port.
- SP RGB Fans: 1 LED each. You can use an RGB Fan Splitter on each RGB Fan Hub port.
- SP-PRO RGB Fans: 8 LEDs each. You can use an RGB Fan Splitter on each RGB Fan Hub port.
- QL RGB Fans: 34 LEDs each. However, they draw less current than the LEDs in other fans. You can put up to 8 QL RGB fans on a single RGB Fan Hub.
These may also be used with the Platinum series coolers. However, with the Platinum series coolers, do not exceed 32 LEDs on a single cooler.
