Fan cases and iMaster SLI 600W

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have many unused 4 pin molex from the power supply and I also do have many case fans (4pcs) with 2x4pin molex (male and female) and I have only used 1x4pin molex from the power supply to power up these case fans, 2x120mm (side and exhaust), 1x80mm(side panel fan), and 3x40mm for 5.25inches front bay fan. The 4pin molex from the power supply is connected to the 120mm exhaust which is then interconnected with the other fans since they all have males and females. Is this okay for the fans? I mean, doesn't they lack power since they all share 1x4pin molex from the power supply therefore they are not running at full speed?

And if i change the setup to directly connect each fans to the several unused 4pin molex from the power supply, is it okay for the power supply to have many direct connections knowing that it is also supplying power to other major components of my rig aswell. I'm sorry, i dont know anything about electricity and power flows. I'm planning to buy 2 more fans and i just want to clear this thing out first before doing so.

Nah,

tbh unless you're using high performance fans then you could run everything off a single molex. Even if you were running Scythe Krazy Kazes then you'll still be fine tbh.

I personally use a fan controller because 3k RPM fans are pretty loud.

Well if you look at the ultra kazes they are 3k rpm fans, they pull 15w each on full load
