Motherboard fan plugins

I am wanting to add more fans into my rig but sadly all the fan inputs on the mobo and PSU have been used up. Is their any sort of adapter I could use to power to additional fans thought some other input on my mobo or PSU? Using 4 case fans and the 1 CPU fan. Mobo and PSU in my specifications

There are Y-splitter cables for PSU & for MB fan connections

Better question.....are your temps so high that you need a whole bunch of fans?

Oh, OK. I think on average, people tend to want to use more fans than they actually need, which just swirls around dust and makes excess noise.

I have bought several of these Y-splitters off eBay. USA addresses & the inexpensive ones from China (but takes 14 to 21 days delivery time from China)

When you have what some consider an excess of case fans, such as 4-5 or even more, you can run these at much lower RPM. This reduces noise to inaudible levels and maintains adequate air flow in the case. You need X amount of CFM through the case, doing it with 2 fans or 5 fans achieves similar results.

A fan splitter like THIS works great for my two cases, these are available in three wire and four wire versions.

Using quality dust filters like Demciflex on all inlet fans virtually eliminates dust inside the system. Using Samokleykin filter material around the I/O panel and any passive air vents further eliminates dust.
