Solved Three way splitter to extension?

Specs: Windows 10
I would like to plug 3 pwm fans into a three way splitter, then plug an extension cable into the splitter, then plug the extension into a phanteks pwm hub. is that okay or can the extension cable (From noctua) not handle 3 fans? Thanks.

Have you read the Manual of the PWM-hub?

The 12V SATA power cable can not be used to power the PWM hub if connecting to these types of 4-pin connec
-
tors, due to the interference with the RPM regulation by voltage (resulting in the fans running on full RPM). The
PWM hub will draw its power from the 4-pin connector, which is limited to a total device consuming 30W in total.

Be careful with overloading electric cables - - - potential fire-hazard.

You have been warned.

So, will it be alright? or is it not meant to be? A clean answer would be appreciated.

Depends on how much power your PWM-fan-header can deliver and the power your PWM-fans consume.

Some ideas here:

The wiring should be fine for the small current fans need.

Well, if the fans are going to the splitter, and the splitter is going to an extension, and the extension is going to the phanteks hub, since the hub is powered by the PSU, would that solve the power consumption issue?

Edit: Just wanted to say that I really appreciate all the info. I just don't want to fry my new Noctua fans. Just started my first custom loop and want to have everything ready before getting the tubing (Final part) for my first time setup.

" I just don't want to fry my new Noctua fans."

It isn't the fans that are in danger...it's the power supply. If you overload it, then the fans become an afterthought. You don't mention your system or what power supply is in it.
