wasn't sure where to ask this, but this group has been helpful in the past.

i want to split the fan RPM signal wire, so that i can run the cpu fan
directly from the motherboard header, but send the signal to the fan
controller i have. that should stop it beeping at me when i turnt eh
machine on, and if the fan controller ever fails, the cpu fan will still
spin.

so, can i just run a 'spur' from the signalling wire to the fan controller,
and put the original plug into the motherboard? or is the solution more
complex?

thanks

hi

no, just solder rpm signal and ground to a new split extention cable and
route that to the fan controller.
