P5E motherboard question

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Yesterday i ordered a P5E motherboard but i just saw that the motherboard doesnt support 6 fans:s

I got 1 intel CPU standard cooler
3 Chassis fans and i wanne put 2 extra VGA coolers in my chassis so in total 6 coolers

Is their a way to do this with the asus P5E motherboard or do i need to change it into a asus maximum formula?

I don't think this is a motherboard question, more of a case question. I have a P5E with no extra cooling on the motherboard, just the stock heatsinks. The P5E does come with a "Q-Fan" that you can attach to the top right located motherboard heatsink, but other than that, you should be able use GPU coolers and whatnot. Don't use the Q-Fan unless you got a passive heatsink/watercooling setup, it will inhibit the processors heatsink/fan and raise temps.

In short, yes: you can use whatever coolers you like, but it depends on your case's size (is it big enough?). I am not aware of the P5E having any trouble with extra coolers on the motherboard.

Answer these questions: what case do you have, and do you plan on getting an aftermarket heatsink (highly recommended)?

If this is not the answer you're looking for, please clarify.

The motherboard has 4 fan headers CPU and 3 opt fans

The only way to add more is to:
1) Get a fan controller
2) Solder on some pins onto the unsoldered points
3) Avoid the 2nd option and get the Maximus Formula and get the fan headers already on it - the P5E is also missing some temperature sensors that the Maximus has

When you get the board - if you are going to overclock - flash the bios to the Rampage like i have - all the options work fine

Oke the problem is i buyed a Thermaltake armor+ 6000 that has 3 molex fans.
On the same day i buyed a Asus P5E that i still can change to a asus maximus formula.Im going to buy 2 140 x 140 mm fans for my chassis so it will have 5 fans.Those 2 extra fans that im going to buy are sharkoons that have 3 pin connection.My question is how can i connect these things on a P5E motherboard?Do i need to have the maximus formula for it?

Ah - no - the P5E can have 4 3pin fans on it - one will be the CPU fan but then you have headers for 3 other 3pin fans - the stock ones can run off molex plugs straight from the PSU

what you mean with "the stock ones can run off molex plugs straight from the PSU"

If i connect the molex fans with my PSU will they work good?I actually want them to lower their speed if my pc isnt hot

If you want to vary them you will need to use a 3 pin connection on them on a fan controler
Or run them maxed out all the time off the PSU
