Daisy chaining fans?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have 3 fans and my front case LEDs that need a 4 pin molex for power, is it ok to daisy chain all 4 of these together or atleast 2 each? It seems to be such a waste to use a 4 pin for each bloody fan. (I would buy fans with 3 pin power but i don't want to spend the $$ if I don't have to) Let me know if it's a bad idea to put so many together on the same 4pin molex. Thanks.

HAHA I don't think you should be worried about daisy chaining. One of the old members on the forum (some of the old guys might remember him) used to daisy chain I think it was 9 or 8 molexes.
