when you turn on your asus software... you'll be able to tell the differences...
that is kinda like asking what is the difference between all the SATA ports on your motherboard.

do your fans have the 3 or 4 pin plugs that go into the motherboard? if you plug them in, the software program will help you control them... and you'll be able to control them by those names in the software. It is as simple as that. smile.gif

thats awesome however there are 6 fans and 4 ports to plug them in...they have 3-pin connectors and 4 pin (molex) connectors for fans and 4 3pin ports to plug them into on mobo (fan 1 fan 2 fan ch1 fan ch2) so i'm confused as how to link them all together...

you're going to need two 3pin Y splitters.
