Hello all need some help from my expert friends here at Tom’s

I am going to get an ASUS rog strix LC 240mm AIO white edition soon and I’ll pair that with NZXT G12 to cool my rx 580 from sapphire.

so here’s my problem : the fan that comes with the bracket and the 2 fans that come with the AIO how do I connect them to the header of the GPU ?
Do I like use a 1 to 3 Pwm splitter or is there some other work around as I don’t want to use the motherboard to control the gpu as basically the fans will work on the basis of cpu and not the gpu

pleaseee help meee

Yes, you'll need something like https://www.amazon.com/CRJ-Splitter-Adapter-Sleeved-Graphics/dp/B07T95C68T because case fan headers are not used on video cards.

Although I suspect NZXT expected you to buy a CAM module or something.
cool I have seen this thing how ever firstly my rx 580 does not have a regular 4 pin header it’s a mini 4 pin header and secondly it has 2 92mm fans on it as of now but I’ll be adding 2 120mm plus one 95 mm to just one header…that won’t short the board would it ??

Unless something is miswired, no. The only real concern is if the header can supply a high enough amperage to drive three fans.

If you don't mind using NZXT CAM (I think it's gotten better over time), you can buy https://www.amazon.com/NZXT-RGB-Fan-Controller-AC-2RGBC-B1/dp/B082PM4K93/ and use that to control the fans based on GPU temps, as CAM can do this.
