I have an important - and rather noobish, sorry - question about fans.
Since I mounted my SLI in my 600T SE I need some serious cooling, my temps are too high. So. I want to mount some additional fans here and there, on the front and bottom, and I think I'l mount the Mash panel to add 4x120mm fans... But I have no idea on how to power them.
I have maybe one or two 4-pin connectors left on my motheboard, and one or two Molex plug left on my PSU. No PCI-E connector left because of the SLI so no adapter. Obviously not enough connectors if I want to plug each fan individually.
I imagine there is a way to mount the fans in series or parallel?
How can I mount these 4 fans? Ideally 6 fans? I'm interested in the Scythe Gentel Typhoon for example, as I understand they come with 3/4 pin connector but no Molex - how can I do? Do I need adapters?
Please help guys... I really need to do it, my PC is very hot. Thanks a lot.

What the other guys recommended is a good option. You could use something like this if you are not worried about the noise.

Personally I am using the Aquaero 5 LT with watercooling and PWM fans. I dont like connecting the fans when pulling off the panel, so I made an adapter that unplugs/plugs in my fans while removing/replacing the side panel.

I just bought a 600T, it's an awesome case... Looks so sleek and the fan controller is the cherry on the cake. I have one question. I know you can remove the extra fan cables however the extra IO wires are really fat and I don't have any use for the audio and 1394 wires. Can they be detached in any way because they are long and cumbersome which makes it hard to hide them properly. If not, can you guys share your cable management behind the tray, I'd be interested to see how you guys have approached this...

OK thanks a lot for the info. I live in France though and I didn't find the reference you showed me at my reseller.

I've found this one
Or this one, are these good?

Here is also a list if you have a couple of minutes to browse and find a good reference - thanks smile.gif

Edit: I've found the NZXT one! Mesh is grreat but I'm not very fond of linear controllers.

Well I plan on putting one here too... And maybe enother at the bottom lol... The hole shebang ^^ My PC is way too hot.

Just got my case along with th enew bitfenix 200 mm fans for the front and sides. I will post pics when I begin modding the top of the case for my 360mm rad. I also got a new rosewill silent night fanless power supply. By the time I get done, should be pretty nice and straight forward.
post #7966 of 18196
Got it done today. The only thing I had for rad fans is 3 slow Yates loons, but it still works fine. The pics suck, so I will try and get some better ones tomorrow after work.

Well I got my parts in...it's been 9 months since I've fully disassembled my system and I find this. Going to Walmart to buy some ridiculous expensive can air so I can get my new stuff in tonight.

don't waste your money on compressed air! this is better and safer, and will save you money in the long run.

Ok, so I managed to sort the cable management out cleanly...
Bought like 400 zip-ties, lol.

Anyways, here are the images for joining the club.
Sorry, I took them on my phone so the quality isn't that great redface.gif
