13 cooling fans

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I have recieved the parts, including 13 cooling fans (mostly 120mms), today. But I have realised that I may be missing something else. Do I actually need an adapter PCI card that can split a number of power connectors (e.g. 13) into one? I don't know if my new motherboard or power supply have enough power connectors to support 13 cooling fans. My motherboard is Asus P8P67 Pro. And my power supply is 650w TV2 corsair.

HAF 932.

So, these cards are the only way to power 13 fans?

if all the fans have molex connectors you could just get molex splitters

saying that, if your fans have molex to molex cables then you won't need anything extra

check this image to see what i'm talking about
