urgent question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
okay so i have my new computer all set up and everything but i have one problem. it seems on my motherboard (asus rampage iii extreem) there are no 3 pin fan connectors. im trying to hook up my cpu fans and plugged one into what looked like a 3 pin connector (that one at the top near to cpu) but the fan didnt work.

so can anybody tell me what to do or if im just being an idiot and missing the connectors?

Clearly identified in the manual and on the motherboard.

Note that 4 pin fan connectors are for PWM fans.
