I am planning on buying a second fan for this to do push/pull and I was wondering if I needed to get some kind of splitter to connect both fans to the cpu fan connector on my mobo (ASUS sabertooth x58).

Thanks in advance!

yes you would unless your mobo somehow has 2 CPU fan connectors...

a splitter would be the best bet....if you are using or just search Gelid they have a good PWM fan splitter i love it works perfectly for my HAF 922 case and Hyper 212+ push/pull setup

yup yup yup i love it

what case you got some people find the splitter a bit long but for me it actually made cable management even better in my HAF 922 cuz i tucked the excess inbehind

I have the LIAN LI PC-7B plus II

I can always tie away any excess, so its not a big deal to me.

Maybe you can help with another question I have:
I plan on getting an 80 mm fan for an exhaust on the top of my fan.
Should I be plugging this into either the NB fan connector on my mobo or a different fan connector? Or simply use the 4 pin connection into my PSU?
