2nd fan on CM Hyper 212+?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have just bought a hyper 212+ for my 2500k and was wondering (not how to attach it) where to plug it in to power it? There is only one "CPU fan" plug on my motherboard, so where would I plug it in/what would I do?

You can use a 3pin to molex converter and power it thru your PSU.

Just plug it into any of the other fan ports. It will be fine. You should have several, and at a bare minimum you'd have 3.

You could plug it in one of the other mobo fan headers or use this

Also one of those y-cable splitters. You can plug 2 or even 3 fans with the splitter into a single mobo fan header.

Something like that.
That would make both speed be controlled by the one fan header, thus having same rpm, which after reading lots of posts here on OCN helps cooling better.
