Question Need help with ARGB and Power

Jan 6, 2022
So I got

ARCTIC P12 PWM PST A-RGB 0dB (3 Pack) - Case Fan, 120 mm PWM case Fan Optimized for Static Pressure, Semi-Passive: 0-2000 RPM, 5V 3 pin ARGB LED - White

And I see they have two wires off each fan. And each wire has a y- splitter so you can essentially daisy chain them together.

I put together a crude diagram using my motherboards manual picture and Microsoft paint.

If someone could please take a look at my diagram and get past the mess of my diagram skills. Is this the correct way to daisy chain them together to get both the pwm and the argb functions? If not please try to explain to me how it's supposed to be done.

This is the diagram... also the three blank squares are also the same exact fans that need to be hooked up too. I was to lazy to finish the diagram since this took me 2.5 hours to make... View:

This is my motherboard ...

I also have the lian li strimers for both 24 pin and 8 pin that I don't know where would go on the motherboard.

Finally i have a argb gpu anti sag bracket to top it all off...

The fans argb draws 0.4amps per fan.
My motherboard says it's argb header supports 3Amps

So theoretically I could daisy chain all 6 fans together and only be at 2.4amps of the 3amps limit.

Then I would use the 2nd argb header for the lian li strimers.

I can't find the power draw of my anti sag bracket though and am scared it might be over the .6amps left on the 1st argb header.

How do I go about wiring this mess up and if I were to accidentally go over the 3amp rating would it fry my motherboard?


This installation guide should be straight forward;
and yes it seems you can daisy chain the PWM cable and the ARGB respectively.\

Your motherboard has 2x ARGB headers so the fans can go on one while the other header is open to be populated with another ARGB device, like your Strimer but please keep in mind that the maximum number splitters for an ARGB header is (1>)4, not more than that.
