Swiftech Launches a SATA Powered 8-way PWM Splitter

It’s an unfortunate fact that most motherboards don’t offer nearly enough PWM connectors to meet enthusiasts' requirements, especially if a liquid cooling system has been installed. Swiftech’s new SATA powered PWM splitter (8W-PWM-SPL) aims to resolve this problem by allowing up to eight PWM devices to be simultaneously controlled with a single motherboard PWM port.

Although the splitter will work on any 4-pin PWM port, the company recommends using the CPU fan connector since it usually allows a greater range of adjustments than the system or chassis ports.

The Swiftech 8-Way PWM Splitter retails for $9.95. At the time of writing it is currently out of stock on the company’s website.

    "SATA powered"? You mean it uses a SATA power connector – it actually has nothing to do with SATA itself.

    Went to their Home Page 9 videos starting at the same time, nothing like attention to details.
    Even the clearance items seem expensive.

    Tom's incredible attention to detail strikes again. It actually uses a Molex connector, the product's description page makes no mention of SATA.

    On the other hand this thing looks real useful, much better than running a half dozen splitters to get PWM fan control.
