Wondering if you are able to use a 4pin Y fan splitter on the fan header for the RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Hybrids to install 2x NF-F12 industrialPPC-3000 PWM fans in Push/Pull? Also wondering if there is a protection circuit on that fan header if nothing is attached; e.g. if I were to install the 2x fans in Push/Pull connected to a Corsair commander pro and controlled through iCue rather than connected to the cards header controlled through Precision X1?

    With my 2080 FTW3 Hybrid, I set it up in push/pull with 2 Thermaltake Pure Plus 12 120mm fans. The fans were connected to the ThermalTake hub and I was able to set their fan speeds based on system temps. I just left the stock fan connector unplugged and velcro'd to one of the AIO lines. It worked flawlessly in this configuration. No errors or issues and temps were fantastic. 

    Here's a pic of the setup for reference:

    Thanks sn0warmy. That helps answer my second question and might be what I end up doing. Hopefully someone else can answer if a Y splitter can be used on the cards fan header.

    The two fans you want to use should work fine with a y-splitter.

    Both fans are oriented as exhaust fans, pushing air through the radiator and out of the back. The fan closest to the CPU is pushing air into the radiator while the fan mounted to the back of the case is pulling the heated radiator air out of the back of the case. 

    So the air flow is like this... (read it right to left)
    Back of Case <<<< Air Flow <<<< Radiator FAN <<<< Air Flow <<<< Radiator <<<< Air Flow <<<< Radiator FAN <<<< Air Flow <<<< Front of Case

    That might cause more confusion than it helps, but it's the best way I'm able to visualize it.

    Since posting that pic I've actually changed my setup to a 2080 TI FTW3 Ultra (non-Hybrid) and swapped out the H500 for an H700i for better air flow. So, I unfortunately can't run tests to get you exact numbers on GPU memory temps. But I will say that with the setup in the picture I posted above, the GPU core temp would remain in the high-50's under long load periods. It rarely (if ever) exceeded 60 Celsius after long gaming periods in BF5 with Ultra settings.

    Thanks Sajin. I'll probably end up going with them attached to the commander pro, however, still glad to have an answer for posterity.

    I replaced the stock fan with one NF-F12 industrialPPC-2000 PWM fan and it dropped temps by 4'C under load.  I wouldn't see the need for two 3000RPM fans.  The increased noise would out weigh the pressure difference.

    I was planning to put my 2 front 140MM case fans on this connector via Y-splitter. They are 2 standard Corsair case fans in my  case.  Basically they are currently linked to my Asus Apex VI mb fan control using CPU temps but I thought it might be better to have them linked to GPU temps instead.  Being that these cards are already kind of power limited will this take anything away from overclocking power?

    My temps for 2080 super hybrid ftw3 running push pull with 2 Corsair ml120s on a Corsair Commander is 43c to 55c max running max setting and gaming for 6 or 7 hours. I decided to use a Corsair Commander and y spliter. speed control for the fan on the back of the rad because I can't see it in case the fan the dies, at least the fan on the front of the rad I'll notice it not spinning, but the evga fan circuit on this card provides inconsistent fan control and huge dip in the fans speed when they wind up. Kind expected even with the stock fans a little better control and stability out if the fan control. But I think that the worst part about my card and I don't know if they made other hyrids the same way, I can under stand running the water pump at a set speed no concerns there, but to not have a pump speed sensor is kinda of stupid to me. I asked a how am going to know if the pump has died and I got the response, when it starts to over heat. Should have included a speed sensor that could notify the system that it's not spinning so you don't over heat the card and do damage to it.
