Ok! My mistake! So you plan to install a fan near the PSU? Like I did on my rig? To the right of the HX-850

im talking about the 4 stock case fans. did you connect them all to the psu for power, or to the motherboard? or did you put 2 on each?


edit- i've done a little more research, and came to the conclusion that i'll just run all 4 off my psu. i dont mind the noise associated with 4 fans running full blast all the time

ok now I know I'm complete idiot.
I didn't understand that you meant connect the fans on the psu or on the mobo...
Well it's all cable management then. If you have plenty of connector on your mobo go for it because it will prevent you to plug some molex cables (takes room). Plus you can tweak the fan speed when plugged to the mobo. So in a nut shell IMO plug everything you can on your mobo. (I think we've finally understood each other )

Anyone know where to get those little plastic retention clips for the cd/dvd drives?
My 912 only came with 1 and I'd like to get at least 2 more.
Thanks,
P0k3 out!
Here you go:

I did the same to my HAF 912 and now all the 5.25" are populated with the tool-less.

Add me!
So in!
Just finished my 932 build.
Plan on swaping out the fans on top and rear with some red LED ones, adding one behind my hard drive bay and one behind the 5.25 bay still, but thats probably a month away :/
Here it is for now






When can I add the sig sign?

Just make sure you don't overpower the MB fan headers. Check your manual for max wattage. Overloading the fan header can burn the circuit or worse short out the board.

True enough. Yet he should have no prob plugging 2 fans on an ASUS board. You know what they say, asus rock solid ^^

This is probably the best option. If the PSU is stable enough then you should not have a problem with the fans. You can always look for quieter fans in the future if you feel the need to do so.

The only real advantage to connecting to the mobo is that you can then get fan speed readings and you can vary the speed. Most (if not all) BIOS these days, mobo supplied software as well as aftermarket software allows for this but they all need to be connected to the mobo. Through the PSU you would then require a fan controller which IMO is a bit more convenient since you can adjust on the go. Unless, of course, you have mobo mfr supplied or aftermarket software and even then a controller is way easier and practical.
