two 3-pin case fans on 1 3-pin mobo power slot?
Hey, just wondering.
But I switched my 2 4-pin PSU case fans for 2 3-pin Mobo case fans and found out i only have one Chassisfan slot on the mobo, and was wondering if there was like a splitter of some sort so i could run the two fans together
They're the exact same fans, and one's in the back and one's in the front

Yes you can do that as long as the total Amp load is less than 0.5Amps (unless you know that your mobo fan headers are rated higher). So add the two fans Amp ratings together and if it's less than what I said then it is safe.
. And you can only monitor ONE of them at a time, so you will need to pull the sensor wire on the second one.
