Count me in, I moved my main mining rig to a carbide 540 to fit 3 290x's. I love my xb evo and couldn't stand not having it put to work, so i built another mining rig out of it with dual 290's.

The ASRock B75 Pro3-M you have has two CPU Fan slots at the top of the board, I think, because it's designed to allow for dual-fan coolers like the Noctuas - a good feature on such an inexpensive mobo, to be honest. Your mobo only has one chassis fan connection, which is rare, so you may need to buy a fan splitter for a couple of dollars - which is much better than plugging a fan into the wrong plug.

Oh I see, thanks for all your help so far! Just to make sure I do not get the wrong one is this fan splitter okay?

It looks like 4 pin into 2 x 4 pin, I am guessing I should try and find a 3 pin into 2 x 3 pin?

If you're not OCing, what use is the h100i? Save yourself the $ and get yourself a cheaper closed loop water cooler or a decent aftermarket air cooler.

Sorry I am confused I am not getting the h100i I am trying to get a fan cable splitter for my two chasis fans?

There's a big difference between 4Pin splitters and 3Pin splitters. 4Pin splitters are meant for PWM, they split into a fan connector with rpm & pwm pin & a molex connector for power from PSU. A 3Pin splitter is wired differently since there's no PWM wire. You're better off just going with a power distribution pcb like a ModMyToys or Phobya one. Not many fan controllers can run 15 3Pin fans off one header so you'll want something that gets its power from a molex. Won't be able to control speeds tho

If you aren't using the 2nd 5.25 bay and want a solid fan controller, I would look at something like this. All you need is molex power plugged into it and you can control them individually.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811997046

Its kind of pricy at $60.00 but its a very solid controller for basically any fan you want to put on it.

Or... if you want something else, there is a variety, but these kinds of controllers make it easy if you want to adjust on the fly without software.
http://www.newegg.com/Controller-Panels/SubCategory/ID-11?Tpk=fan%20controller



Personally I use this and just let the fans run and max speed, but I don't care about the noise, more the coolness of the case.

better get something like this: Swiftech 8-way PWM splitter, only $9,95
