LOL!! That is exactly what I did! I'm running full SATA, so the IDE cables are stashed in the back. (run along the case grooves and split the wiring harness in places to flatten them out) When I was running the fan cables, ALL were too short to where I hoped to place them for a clean look on the MB. SO, I ordered a fan controller and 5 18" extension cables!

I was questioned why I went Overkill on my Corsair 750, but this is the exact reason why! I planned on keeping the case clean and using the extra power I needed to run extensions to a Fan controller, as well as light them up with LED fans and such. My MB can fit it all in, so why not go for the BEST I can do!?

I started out looking for advice on a QUICK clean build with a reasonable price.... then I ran into THIS Forum! Since than.... I've been waiting for orders!!

You ALL are crazy....And I love IT!!!

I plugged my front fan in after the hard drive mod and with the drive cage removed the air flow was great, I think I will try and run this without a side fan or the fan on the bottom of the case and see what happens.

If you want to go the motherboard fan control route, then do a push/pull setup with 2x25mm fans.

would it be bad for the motherboard to have a Y cable splitting the 4 pin on the motherboard and running 2 fans on it?

As long as the fans don't exceed the amperage of the header on the motherboard then it would not be bad.
