location, direction, MB connectors for fans...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all!

It is occuring to me that I may have messed up some fan connections.
My temps are fine, but I want to make sure I've got it right.

First a few specs...

MB = P8P67M-Pro

Case = Coolermaster CM 690II advanced
http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/prod...roduct_id=2970

PSU = Coolermaster GX 705W
http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/prod...roduct_id=2974

CPU = i7 2600K

I forget the name of my 3rd party heat sink but it's better than ships with the i7, but also nothing special.

I am OC'ing, but not alot....only to 4Ghz.


My front fan (with the pretty blue light) is blowing inwards, and it is plugged into the PWR_FAN connector
My top fan is blowing outwards, and it is plugged into the CHA_FAN2 connector.
My rear fan is blowing outwards, and it is plugged into the CHA_FAN connector.
My Heat sink fan blows into my heatsink, it is attached to the right side of my heat sink, (near my ram) and it is plugged into the CPU_FAN connector.

I read that the PWR_FAN connector should be used for the PSU fan or something. I have not plugged the PSU fan into anything, I can't even find it's plug, yet it seems to be working just fine.

is there anything wrong with my setup?

thanks for anyone's input.
