Hi Everyone,

I've been trying to find an answer to my question for about an hour with no luck.

I want to install a total of three PWM Silent Wings into my Meshify C Mini but only have 1 PWM fan header labeled Chassis Fan Connector (CHA_FAN1). Its a ASROCK AB350 Pro 4 (its a ryzen build so I had to settle). The fan hub I want is: https://www.amazon.com/Electop-Chassis-Cooling-Port-Controller/dp/B07416KLWJ/ref=sr_1_5?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1539796781&sr=1-5&keywords=pwm+fan+splitter+sata and says I need to plug it into the CPU_FAN slot. I have my wraith cooler in there already so is it safe to just use the fan header and still achieve PWM on the fans?
 
You should have 4 FAN headers on that motherboard.. 1 CPU_FAN and 3 CHA_FAN.

If you still need a hub the one you picked will probably work without issue, however the most popular and only a couple dollars more is the https://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-System-Cables-Black-CPF04/dp/B00VNW556I/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1539798952&sr=1-3&keywords=pwm+fan+hub

The CPU Cooler really should be separate on the CPU_FAN header because the cooler fan will typically rev up a lot more then the chassis fans.

I failed to mention the motherboard is the M version for Micro ATX so it has 14 pin PWM fan header and 1 3 pin DC fan header.

Thank you for the reply. I'll definitely go with the Silverstone if that's what everybody else is using. So I wont run into any issuing plugging this bad boy into a fan header?
