Hooking two SP120's to a CPU 4 pin Tags: Heatsinks CPUs Corsair Overclocking Last response: January 15, 2013 6:39 PM in Overclocking Share austing a b à CPUs January 15, 2013 6:05:13 PM I need a way to hook two SP120's into a 4 pin CPU header for my Push/Pull Corsair H60 What I know I'll need is a 4 pin Y splitter cable, which I have. The Y splitter makes 2 4 pin connections, but the SP120 fans are a 3 pin fan. With that in mind, how can I connect my 3 pin SP120's into my 4 pin Y splitter?

In several instances on builds I have done, I took a "Y" adapter, cut the end off, and soldered the wires together (matching colors of wires). Make sure to use heat shrink tubing to keep things neat... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
