Well it seems i've hit a bump...

The zalman z9 case comes with 4 fans 1 on top 1 on the back and 1 on the front and one on the side.

I have the top fan plugged into the mobo on cha_fan.

Which is great and all but the mobo only supports the cpu fan and that 1 channel.

The back fan is a Big 4 pin Peripheral connector with 2 black wires going into the back.
It looks as if i can plug something into the back of it and then plug it into something in the front.

While the others have a 2 pin connection.

The case also has a temp monitor, i plugged all the small cables into the mobo,
IDE_LED
=
ide_Led +
ide_Led -

PWRSW

Pwr and ground

RESET
=
reset
Ground

PLED
=
PLED +
SPACE
PLED -

SPEAKER
=
NONE

I believe this is correct per manual diagram.

Is it possible to have all the fans hooked up or what shall i do?

do both fans just plug right into the two 2 pin connectors?

and the big 4 pin connect to the red/black peripheral connection coming from the PSU.

If not/if so what about the two 4 pin conectors for the fan controller?

So essentially their are three 4 pin connectors coming from the case 2 from the front panel, and the pin from the back fan
Does this look even remotely close to being right?

The Power supply connection on the left is going into the back fan connection 2 black wires???

While the one on the right, the power supply cable is GOING into both of the front panel connectors.
450



Here is a better picture of what i'm dealing with for better or worse clarity.

Is this correct?



Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys

I think this is the case you got. Your rear fan which comes with 4 pin molex connectors can be connected to a 4 pin molex connector from PSU directly.Don't have any intermediate connections betwen the rear fan molex and the 4 pin connector from PSU. currently one rear fan and one top fan exhuasting hot air are enough.

as for the front fan and side fan if they don't have 4 pin molex you need to get converters. If they are 3 pin motherboard type power connectors , you can get converters like this

Unless you feel the need for extra case cooling you can manage with 2 fans exhausting hot air out of the cabinet. since there are vents in the front and a huge grill pattern with holes in side of the cabinet cool air will be sucked in and circulated. I have an ANTEC 300 with one top 120mm fan and one rear 120mm fan exhausting hot air and I have vents in the front and small grill pattern with holes in the side to let cool air be sucked in. I have a HD 6950 and I have no cooling issues with just 2 fans. thumb.gif

I See, But what about the connections on the front I/0 panel for the temperature display and the Fan controller those are what not usable? i'm confused.

the fans on the case were meant to be plugged into the plugs on the i/o panel i just don't know how the power would be supplied to them.

Unless i'm extremely retarded and thought this would have been easy lol
Plus the fans are BLUE, i need me some blue lights!

Sorry what i meant was, Where would the i/0 2 pin connectors connect to?

See the zalman case manual for connections for temperature display and fan controller. For the case fans the only option is to get the adapter. You can check how the tmeps on CPU and GPU are with just 2 fans plugged. top and rear. if required get the adapters and plug the side and front too.

The manual also states: Fan controller, After connecting the 4-Pin power cable, connect fans to fan controller.

Temperature Display: After connecting the 4-pin Power, locate temperature sensor to disared location, blah blah blah.

nevermind did some googling think i got it figured out! Let's see if it fires up!
