Hey everyone! I just got my prodigy to switch from a 600T. The build went pretty darn well, and all I had to buy was the case and a new motherboard (I got the gigabyte z77 board).
However, I've hit a small roadblock. Because of the size constraints, I could no longer use my hyper 212+ and had to toss my stock intel cooler in until I can get something better. I'm not getting temperatures that I'm happy with, so I figure I should get an H60.
Issue 1: There's only two fan headers on the motherboard - the one for the CPU fan and an extra for case fans. The prodigy came with two case fans, so I'm only running the front one right now. What kind of splitter would work best for this so I can use both?
Issue 2: The H60 uses both the CPU fan header and another motherboard fan header (For the radiator fan). As I understand it, the piece that goes on top of the CPU has a cable that plugs into the CPU fan header, and the fan attached to the radiator goes in a normal fan header on the motherboard. Is this correct? And will I still be fine running all of this with a 3-pin fan splitter?
I suppose a molex to 3-pin adapter would work too, but when all is said and done, I'll have the h60 plugged into the CPU fan header, then three more fans (one screwed to the radiator, one on the top grill, one on the front.)
I guess I'm just seeing how I should go about making all of this possible with only two motherboard fan headers.
