The 3 Pin wires are for connecting the fans for the fan controller. Leave the ends on if you are not going to use them. And the 4 Pin I am guessing is the Molex power connector for the power to the fan controller. Did that help??

You dont have to connect it up, but I did. You hook the 4 pin Molex(multicolored 4 pin plastic plug) up to one coming from you PSU(ax850). Then you can take the female connectors from the fans and hook them up to the male 3 pin from your controller. Otherwise you can hook the fans into your mobo, or use a adapter to plug them straight into a Molex(full power all the time).

Sorry if it is a little long, but tried to be complete.

EDIT: Dont remove the extra connectors slid onto the fan controller wires, only the ones you intend to use. If you leave the pins exposed and power the fan controller, it could short something out. Common sense, right??

Hes trying to be like me, but I have a 860....You can use 970s with dual channel, but only reason I see why is to save money on ram. I guess

^^ yea... it was on sale and i heard after 4-6 gb of ram for gaming there really isn't a difference.. plus i am getting the 970 through the intel retail edge. so less $ than the 930... yea anyone will take that any day.

for those familiar with the ax850.. the 24 pin connection to the mother board i connected but the other end that connects to the psu has two sets of pins i think 14 and 10 off the top of my head... do i connect both?

I would say so. It must be compatible with older MOBOs. Maybe the older ones only had 14 pins, dont know from experience. As this is my first build as well.

And for gaming, you really dont need more than 4gb. I have 8 and usauly dont use most of it, but there are some times when I any have 1gb free. Using 4.6 currently, but my rig is trying to solve the mysterys of the universe(crunching Cosmology).

Has anyone replaced the front fan with a Antec Big Boy 200? i'm buying this case soon and I'm changing the back fan, adding 2 top 12cm fans, and adding a 5.25" fan bay with Scythe fans to increase the air flow.

I havnt used the Antec Big boy fan, but I have already removed both 200mm fans. I dont like LEDs and they didnt move much air around. I am going to put 2 120mm fans into the front, where the 200 mm fan was, and block off the extra holes around the sides for better forced air flow. I have also put a 120mm fan into the 5.25 Bays, the corsair one it came with as exhaust(quiet fan that only reaches 1k rpm). I have pictures on page 10

Not sure if the Antec fan is thicker than the one thats in it, but the front fan is held in by a large bracket. So if the fan is thicker than 25mm(I think thats what it is) you may have to mount the fan directly(like I did with a Antec 140mm Tricool) to the grill, or mod the bracket. The bracket is nice because it is easy to remove.
