Help connecting system/case fans to Motherboard!!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am building a system for the first time and am buying this motherboard
http://www.gigabyte.in/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4434#sp

Now the problem is that this ,mother board has only 4 fan headers i.e 1 CPU Fan header,SYS_FAN1 (With speed control),SYS_FAN2(Without speed control),PWR_fAN(Without speed control)
I am planning on installing at least 4 system fans,now the CPU one is occupied and after I connect 1 fan to SYS_FAN1,I will have to connect the other 2 to SYS_fAN2 AND PWR_fan both of which dont have speed control so do i have no choice in the matter but to let these fans run at max speed and also since the MB has only 3 effective system fan headers what do I do connect the one remaining fan?

To summarise

1.Can I connect more than 3 fans since I only have 3 headers on my MB?
2.Out of the 3 headers only one has the speed control so do I have no choice but to leave the 2 fans running at max speed?
3.Where do I connect the one fan remaining?

Thanks in advance for helping a noob smile.gif

Just Google Fan Splitter. There are all kinds of them.
Get ones that match the plugs on your motherboard and the fan(s) you want to use.
The colored, sleeved ones are nice.
