Where to conect Processor fan?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok i have a problem
I have asrocks fatal1ty p67 mobo
and Processor fan Thermaltake SpinQ VT
And Fan controller Lamptron Fc6

First i wanted to controll the fan with the fan controller
but then learned that processor fans is best controller by the mobo
I been told by someone that speed change after time to time adapting to your Pc tasks.

There just one problem this fan is 3pin and i been told that my mobo neeed a 4 pin fan to be able to controll it
yes it can be conected but will then always run at 100% which i was told is not good should change and adapt to your task...

I then though maybe a 3pin to 4pin fan adaptor exist
but then been told that dont exist

So then i been recomended to conect it to fan controller instead and controll it manually but being and important fan that need to change depending on your task (thats what i been told i have no experience in fan controlling)
it worry me that How well i be able to controll it manually

I dont want to controll that fan up and down constantly everytime i do something like a gear on a car

So what do i do now
please advice.....

is for use in a HAF-X case
