TBH you'd fill your case top to bottom with fans before you'd overload a rail on your PSU with average fans (Disclaimer: statement excludes those insane Delta fans)

Get 3x one molex to 2molex cables, can get em on ebay for like 50p or something.

Then you got 4molex, from one!

I dont need any spliters, the connectors are one piece pass-through Molex connectors......



I was just wondering if it was possible and safe connecting like 5 fans to one molex. Thanks
