You could splice the control wires together. It's the yellow wire I think.
You'll need to power them with a molex attachment though, I think the mobo headers can only power 2 fans.

Or just get a fan controller.

You can buy fan splitters like this : http://www.aquatuning.us/product_info.php/info/p10217_Phobya-Y-cable-4Pin-PWM-to-3x-4Pin-PWM-30cm---black.html

Or you can crimp the wires together onto a single fan header if you have a crimper.

I did the research in while I was building my last watercooled system. Mobo fan headers supply 1 amp and most fans only require about 0.3 amps so usually you can run 3 fans off each header.

Corsair Carbide 400R

post #3924 of 4611
I am considering buying a Carbide 400r, and would also want to use a Water 2.0 Extreme mounted at the top.

Has anyone done this? Enough clearance? The Water 2.0 extreme is a thicker than normal radiator.....

I tried to search this thread but the search tool wont work for some odd reason.......

Yellow is the rpm report. Black and red are obvious. Blue is for the nice Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) control of the fan.

I was about so sugest the Phobya splitter. I use one for 3x Corsair SP120's. Works a treat,

Im starting build on a 400R, is this a good fan layout?

post #3927 of 4611
You can add the 120mm fan under the dvd drive. It will intake fresh air to your H100i
post #3928 of 4611
Thanks! Im so exit about this build! I also have plans to do a window mod:D
post #3929 of 4611
Has anybody added a fan to the back side of the motherboard?

With my cpu socket temps pretty hot, having the side of the case off and a fan on the back of the mobo really drops temps.

Has anyone cut a hole for a fan on that side?
