First let me start by stating that this is clearly for the purpose of goofing off and education. I currently have a CM Hyper 212 Evo with a single Noctua NF-F12 PWM fan in a push configuration. I purchased an NF-P14 FLEX fan (non-PWM) for another project a while ago but that didn't work out. So I have this extra fan sitting around and am playing with the idea of attaching it to the Hyper 212 as a pull fan for entertainment.
My question is, using the PWM splitter that Noctua provides, with the F12 connected to the full 4 pin extension and the P14 to the 3 pin end of the splitter, would the P14 work appropriately? It's not a PWM fan so would its speed be properly attenuated? If so, would this have any ill effects on the PWM controller?
The Noctua NH-D14 cooler appears to ship with an NF-P14 PWM fan which they didn't ever sell separately that I know of. Given they aren't using the FLEX fan in their setup I figured I'd ask around here.
