1) I've got a Fractal Midi Arc 2 with 3 case fans, but only 2 3-pin fan connectors on my motherboard. Can I plug the fan into a 4 pin connector (it fits)? Or how should I fix tihs.
2) my motherboard's input-output shield had these terrible metal bits next to the inputs. As the ignorant computer builder I am I removed some of them. I spoke with a computer-builder friend and he said I'm fine. Is it alright? I hear they help "ground" the input-ouput shield. I kept maybe 20% of them on, so there is some grounding. Not even going to use the shield anyway---got my own video card, wireless, etc.
