Hi I am using a ASUS F2A85-V amd motherboard with a A8 6600k and I am hopeing to add some more pwm fans in the next few days.

I only have 3 fan headers so i will need to get a splitter to be able to add more fans, i have had a quick browse on the internet and there is people mentioning that you need to be careful of voltage draw when using a fan splitter is this true?

I was thinking of purchasing this fan splitter: fan splitter

Usually the motherboard fan header can provide 1 Amp, and your fan is 0.23 A / 12 V (F12 PWM). So you are fine to use the fan splitter for two of them.
