Fan Hookup

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I am connecting all my fans to my Corsair AX850 power supply and mobo. I connected my SilverArrow to the mobo, and I am connecting the rest of my fans to the PSU. The adapter wire that came with the PSU has 4 connectors and the 1 connector to fit the PSU. Am I allowed to put more than one fan on any of the connectors? (as you know there is a male and female side to each fan connector)

If I am allowed to put multiple fans on one connector, how many is recommended NOT to exceed?

The sticker on the fan will give you the power needed to run the fan so times that by two or three. However, it also depends on the type of fans being used.
Your psu should have no problem running two fans though on a single connection.

You can put all of your Silver Arrow fans on one molex connector from your PSU.
