Specs: Windows XP, Sony PCV-RX760 with 478 socket 2.2 GHZ
I have a Nexus P4 PHT-3600 CPU Cooler, with a 70 * 70 * 25 fan 2400 RPM 12 Volt with 3-pin female IDC. And want to install it with 2 - 120 * 120 * 25 PWM fans that are 750 RPM 6 volt to 13.8 volt with 3-pin female IDC, And I want to hook all 3 fans to my mother board 3-pin header with a Noise Reduction cable going to the 2400 RPM fan changing it to 1930 RPM and 10 volts.
Using 2, 3-pin splitters, or Y cables. So all 3 fans will be controled by the MOB, will this work or burn up my mother board?

I did some research and solved my own question. Thanks any way, has a 3-pin splitter on one end it has a 3-pin male plug for you to plug the 3-pin female plug fan#1 into. The other end has two connectors: A male 4-pin moles connector with two wires (red and black) that can be connected to a regular power supply 4-pin molex connector. The second connector on the other end is a single-wire (yellow/blue) 3-pin female connector that you plug into your mother board to sense the temperature. Add two 3-pin Y connectors and the splitter allows dc voltage to be supplied from a power supply while keeping the temperature sensing function of MOB 3-pin Header, and you can add as many fans as you like. So I got my CPU fan and a noise reduction cable, and 2 case fans all hooked to MOB, works GREAT.
