Fan connection problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but I have an intel processor in my build so... tongue.gif

This is my first build, so i'm pretty noob to the whole thing. I'm trying to connect my fans from my chassis to my motherboard, the problem is there are pins from the chassis fan to the motherboard, and the motherboard has pins as well...

Here are a few picture to better explain what my feeble words are trying to:
chassis fan plug:


fan ports:


Case is:

Motherboard is:

Thanks for the help!

that should be if you want to connect addtional fans to use under your case's fan management system. you see your case come with onboard fan management of up to eight fans. as long as you connected power to the molex cable that is the case's than your fans will work. exception being your back exhaust fan may need to be plugged into your mobo unless it is connected to case and unavaliable to plug directly into mobo

So I dont do anything with those four fan plugs then? confused.gif There are four of these plugs, how would I know which one is the exhaust, and how would I plug it in? haha, sorry for being so nooby

Do I plug the molex connector directly into my PSU then?/

run you molex cable from your psu to the molex one from the case and connect. your exhaust fan is on the back of the case and came with it. the line from it should be disconnected from anything. there should be a connector close to the back of your case on your mobo that reads case fan. or something like that. or you can run it to one of the 4 male plugs the case is sporting

cha_fan 3 to be exact

These are the only wires that I have that aren't already plugged into the mobo(sorry for bad quality):


Theres the four fan connectors that I have in the picture in the original post, and then the one other one which I think is the molex connector. Kinda stumped at what to do. I looked behind the case for more wires, but that is all there is:confused:. I haven't put in my PSU yet as its modular, and i'm just waiting to get all the wires in the casing set before I do that.

edit: okay... So I assume I plug the molex into the power supply, and then if I want to add fans I use the extra four fan things to plug those into?

put in psu plug in a molex to case molex receiver this will power your fans. then the rest are for extra fans you want to control from using the onboard fan control
