If you want to run multiple fans off the same motherboard header then yes. Here's one where you wouldn't need any other power except from the motherboard (for more then 3, you should get one that has a molex for power)

I have a phobya 6 way splitter, runs the fans all at 12v off a controller no problem. Not sure if thats what you mean.

Thank you!
That seems to be a better alternative than the molex one. The case fans are 3 pin so can I still connect them to 4 pin? So is this good: http://ncix.com/products/?sku=56217&vpn=TX3SPLITTER&manufacture=Startech%2Ecom or http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=8_128&item_id=047494 since both case fans are 3 pins should I just get the 3 pin one?

Also if I want to add more fans in the future is there a molex to multi fan connection cable, I can't find one.

Well that's off a controller. But do motherboard headers deliver enough power to run that many fans? Sure if you have a fan controller that has 30+W per channel you could easily run that many on one channel, but I have heard otherwise for motherboard.

You can plug 3 pin fans into a 4 pin splitter. Nice to have that 4 pin functionality if you ever needed it though. Also, you can have a PWM splitter that connects to the motherboard (for control) but where the fans are powered by a molex, like this one (look at the pictures)

Hours of pages and pictures, posts and comments and nothing! I need that one piece of spark to get my brain rolling on a theme idea but I just can't think of anything.

-I thought of a Transformers theme but what I had in mind for it just wouldn't work with this case.
-I has a flash of a Cortana/Halo theme but that didn't last long. Mainly the colors for motherboards just didn't fit well with it. It involved a lot of laser sketching glass.
-Had a sort of zombie apocalypse theme but for me it would be hard to capture the blood stains on the case. It would have to have been air brushed for me from someone who also loves zombies and blood, etc.
-Dark Knight popped in my head. The only thing that really stood out was everything was with a lot of blacks with this blinding white light at the top to some how maybe make a bat signal to flash against the wall or something.
-A custom blue w/white carbon fiber outlines.

Alright, I has some ideas to throw against the wall but nothing really stuck out. I could do them all and some or all would like but I want that something for me to like as well. Although I like my ideas it's still just barely floating in my mind.

So ... AH!

Thank you for your help biggrin.gif

I noticed some people here put in a fan controller instead of a dvd drive. How do you guys install windows, can you boot from an external dvd drive? I am trying to making a bootable usb but it isn't working xD

DO NOT plug multiple fans into a mobo fan header, they don't have the voltage necessary to run more than 1 (sometimes 2) fans.
