    I think it's probably not recommended, but it may work. You'll have to make sure the fans don't exceed the power available on that channel, which on the zalman is quite low IIRC.

    Thanks The fans say Nominal voltage: 12V Starting voltage: 7V Current draw: 0,22A
    The contoller says Input voltage 12vdc Max power 7.0w per channel Output voltage 5vdc -11vdc 5%
    1x Phobya Nano-G 14 Silent 1000rpm
    1x 20cm cable adaptor 12V to 7V (black sleeved)
    The fan is shipped with cables for voltage reduction. These cables reduce the voltage to 7V if desired well im lost on it so i'll just rig one fan to one connector thanks alexhull for u help

    They should be OK according to that, but do real the manual for the Zalman to check out what it advises.
