Fan 4pin Molex Connector

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,
I just recently started putting together my build and I have a small problem. I'm using a NZXT Phantom 530 and I've come across this 4 pin molex for the fans.

Problem is i don't see any 4 pin connections on my motherboard Gigabyte G1 Sniper Z5S.

And I don't think the power supply has any 4 pin connections. What do I do? Any help would be really awesome. Sorry if this has been answered before and thank you in advance. Also feel free to move the post to the appropriate location of need be.

What power supply do you have? Molex is going away, but I have not seen a PSU yet that didn't have some 4 -pin Molex as peripheral power/

I think the NXZT 530 has a built in fan controller? That uses a standard 3-pin fan connector.




Need more info... what is that molex on?

Molex leads back to the fan controller at the top.

So this cable?

Where do the rest of the connectors go? Would they just being hanging around doing nothing? Apologize for asking so many questions. First build and i don't want to mess it up.

Cocobani, according to the manual for your case here

http://www.nzxt.com/uploads/downloads/manuals/manual_phantom_530.pdf

You do not need to plug the fan hub into the motherboard at all. The fans are controlled by the slider at the top of the case, and only need to be plugged into the power supply.

Yes, it is not required that you connect every 4-pin molex on that cable. They are there in case you need them.

Thank you! One last question? Are all cables included sata 3?

All the data cables should be yes. And SATA power has not changed for ages, so again yes.
