Onboard fan vs. 120mm fan in front

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i've got an old school 754 board in my sig rig. It has an onboard fan and i was wondering if I took it off and put a 120mm in the front would i get a little cooler running temp or is it best to keep that fan running?

Why not just keep the onboard fan and put in a 120mm fan as well

Edit:

Btw the radeon x300se is your video card =) not sound card

You can normally just plug in the 2 molex to each other, Most will allow you to "Daisy Chain" them

why not solder a molex connector onto your fan? It's not all that difficult if you have a spare crummy molex fan sitting around
