Rated 4 out of 5 by FamilyTechGuy Works on CPU PWM
I like the SATA power connector, helps reduce the cables coming from my power supply because I just use the extra SATA connector at the end of the power line supplying my hard drives. Having the cables separate could be a problem for some but it does provide more flexibility to connect fan cables that aren't able to reach a central point. Unfortunately the PWM signal doesn't work with anything other than the CPU PWM connector. Fan connectors 1 and 2 manage to control my fans without a problem when the fans are plugged in directly but aren't able to transmit the PWM signal when connected through the splitter. It is strange to have the PWM signal work perfectly through the splitter when connected to the CPU header but not to the other fan headers.
If you only have 5 PWM fans in your case you won't have a problem but when you have more than that you'll need to daisy chain these splitters.
