Hi,

I’m about to build my first PC. However I’ve seen on a reddit post about something to do with needing a fan splitter of some sort to allow the stock rgb fans which come with my case to work.

I have following;

Case - Phanteks p400a
Motherboard - MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX

Sorry for the lack of information, I’m new to this.

If anyone can help me, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

The manual for that case is somewhat vague however it appears you have a fan controller so you are going to connect each fan to the controller and the controller will have two connections; one to pw [probably sata] one to the each of the fans. The manual does not show the controller connecting to the motherboard for PWM control however it may do so.
The RGB will plug into the motherboard. The manual is unclear if the RGB goes through the controller or not.

It would be a very good idea to post your complete parts list.
