Confused on fan connections and big typhoon fastening

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have hooked up my cpu fan and psu fan on the asus a8n32-deluxe mobo. However, my case comes with 3 fans. The mobo manual is confusing. There is an nb fan, sb fan, cha 1 fan, and cha 2 fan. I have an enermax psu. The cae fans have the typical 3 pin connector and two 4 pin connectors (male and female). I am assuming that one of these (male) will hook to my power supply? How do I hook all 3 fans to the PSU (4 pin) and where do I connect these on the mobo (3 pin)?

Also, I attched my big typhoon on the cpu last night. I tightened it down the best I could (it doesnt move). I applied as5 in the center of the cpu first, but I had to wrestle it a bit to get it secured. So the extra movement might have caused the paste to disperse in an unorthodox manner. Is this a problem?

Man this is rather complicated stuff (for me). I would appreciate any help.

Thanks

I would remove the typhoon, clean it up and try again, As5 is conductive and might cause a problem later on.

Do you have any suggestions for getting this thing on in one flail swoop? I would say that the move was about an 1/8 of an inch off center. After applying a bb size dallop on the center of the cpu, I lowered it straight down slightly off center (1/8 in). Then, I centered it and gave it a twist in both directions. Finally, I secured it and tightened the screws. It is hard to reach the screws to fasten it while trying to keep it still. I have thick hands so I am trying to be cautious about not bumping my mobo while trying to do this.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. As long as you use the right amount of AS5, it tends not to spread past the edge of the CPU.

I recently learned that AS5 is not conductive per se but is capacitive. I still think it will be a bad thing if it gets all over anything, but I just thought I would spread the word.
