Hi Maciek,

Yes, no worries, the mobo will be able to handle 3 case fans. it has one fan header for the cpu cooler, and two fan headers for the case fans.

If you're getting the Noctua fans, they will come with a fan header splitter so that you can connect two fans to the one mobo fan header.

Don't panic! You'll be alright! thumb.gif

KR,

Oh you're right, sorry, I thought you were getting the same mobo as mine because they sound so similar - z170i Pro Gaming & z170i Gaming Pro - HAhahahaha ...

Yeh I had a look at your mobo and it does look like there's only one case fan header and one cpu fan header. You could attach two fans to the CPU fan header too if you don't mind that? Or...

You can always order a fan splitter that supports up to 4 case fans, but it connect to the PSU through molex connectors.

Regards,

There is also a splitter that connects to PWM connector and gets the power from molex for up to 3-4 case fans.

Hi Richard,

I sent you invitation on hangout if youd like to connect wink.gif.

So what you are saying is that I could connect one splitter to CPU fan header and the other splitter to Case fan header so that it will give me 2x2=4 Outputs - 1 for CPU and 3 for Case fans?

I hope that would work. And how did you solve this issue in your mobo ? Does it actually have 2 case fan headers and 1 for cpu ?
You would think the Z170l would keep similar standard across different manufacturers.


@Arengeta

Would you mind sharing any product manufacturers or just example of that splittters ? I want to look for one of these at my local computer shop but I need to know what I am looking for wink.gif

Thanks a lot guys.

Just receive text message. Node 202 should arrive tommorrow and I Hope to get PSU + Noctuas tommorow too. Yay smile.gif

Hi guys,

I am finishing my Node 202 build and this thread is probably most useful source of information, thanks! I am not very experienced so I will be happy for any help. I don't want to overclock. My idea is:
  • Node 202
  • Corsair SF450 450W - in my country Integra source is sold out frown.gif
  • i5-6600
  • OCZ Trion 150 - 480GB
  • Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2133 - they are small
  • ASUS GeForce TURBO-GTX1070-8G - blower + has PWM connector for FAN
  • GIGABYTE GA-B150N Phoenix-WIFI - has two case PWM connectors if needed

I have a few questions.
  1. Regarding GPU I plan to put ASUS Turbo + one silent case fan nearby HDD slot and regulate fan directly from card. Is this a good idea?
    As an alternative I am thinking about Gigabyte 1070 Mini GTX with non-blower fan + two case fans as intake (MBO side) and exhaust (HDD side).
    Which solution will be more quite?
  2. If I will choose another GPU, is there a way ho to control speed of the fan connected to MB based on GPU temperatures? Standard fan curve utilities supplied by MB producers are always based on temps at MB/CPU, right?
  3. About fans - is it better to have normal 1 inch fans with little space between them and GPU or to have slim ones with more space?
  4. About PSU - is better to have flat or sleeve cables? Majority of the people use 450W PSU with GTX1070, but 500W is recommended by Nvidia - is it ok? Any suggestion for another PSU because of shorter/better cables?
  5. About hard-drive - Will it help with airflow to remove HDD bracket completely and use only M2 SSD? What about cooling of M2 SSD, some people don't re comment to use M2 slots in SFF machines because of insufficient cooling.

Thanks a lot!

Hi richard.

Should I remove dust filters before applying Noctuas F12 to the case ?

The nocuta Y splitter has one one side 3 pin on other extension 4 pin. Which one should go to CPU and whitch one should go to case fan ?
