question about Noctua NH-D14 connection

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
im new to building so bare with me if i sound stupid

i might be using this cooler and im going to using it with the p8z68-v pro mobo

the noctua is a 3 pin connection ..this is what i wanna do in theory i wanna use this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812189063 so i only have to plug into one fan port but is there anyway to use this and plug into a 4 pin so my system can manage the speed of the noctua?

The D14 comes with the perfect Y-able. It allows you to plug both fans into a single cpu fan header, yet because it has only one rpm reporting line it will not confuse the mb with multiple rpm signals.

Now, that said, even though you plug it into the 4-pin header (3-pin and 4 pin are compatible by design) you will not get fan control from that header because As.s does not do Voltage control of CPU fans. Only Gigabyte does that, and they have started not to do that on some of their new boards. RTFM to see if Voltage control is supported by any mb.

Anyway, whatever your fans are set for, that is what you will have.
