Fan Connector Cable Multi 3 Pin to One 4 Pin

• Connect multiple 3-pin fans to one 4-pin connector from the PSU• Can also be used to reduce fan speed and noise

This clever cable solves two problems in one. At its simplest level, the cable allows you to connect multiple 3-pin fans (or Fan Mates) to one 4-pin connector from the PSU. This is useful where you wish to install one or more 3-pin fans but there are no available 3-pin fan header sockets available on the motherboard.In addition, it gives you a choice of two operating speeds for your fan(s), by allowing you to run your 12 volt fan(s) at 5 volts if desired. This has the effect of slightly reducing the speed of the fan, and significantly reducing the noise. Although the airflow will be reduced, this rarely has a large effect on case temperature.

Are the 3 pin connectors male or female?
