Bringing fan cables through PCI slot

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, so here's my idea. I want a PCI slot cover that has 4x 3-pin fan headers to pass through from the inside of the case to the outside of the case for my radiator fans. If someone would be willing to put one together for me, I'm willing to pay, and I'd be most appreciative. Shoot me a PM if you are. Or if someone can give me a step-by-step w/ pictures (or a link to one) for making something similar, that would also work. I've never made my own connectors before. All the modding I've done has just involved drilling holes and cutting sheet metal.

So basically you want to hook up some extensions to a pci cover? I can do that.

Might be better off with 12" ones

If I was you I'd do some measurements and make even rectangular holes and epoxy the ends.

Sort of. I want the male connectors on the outside for the fans and the female connectors immediately behind them with no wires or anything flopping around. I plan to run a 3-pin to 4x 3-pin splitter cable from the fan header on the motherboard to plug into the pass-through.
