Hey everybody, I'm getting pretty close to being done with my second pc build and I ran into a little problem.


I am trying to power three fans while using the Y splitter fan cables(2 fans max per cable) that came with the H100i.


The reason for three fans is because I can't do a push/pull config in my case so I'm just using the two included corsair fans, and I'm also trying to connect my rear exhaust fan so they can all be controlled by the corsair link software...(so same rpm).


I have tried many things to make these fans work in the setup that I prefer... but they will only work when I plug them into the motherboard... and they go full blast so that's not gonna cut it..


I have tried my troubleshooting skills, but to no avail...


My last option is to unplug one of the Y cable from the H100i and see if the two fans on the radiator work, I have tried everything else..


And to post here to see if anyone has any ideas.


So any advice will be greatly appreciated.
