How do I plug in case fans?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm building a new system, and I'm using the stock HAF 932 cooling, 4 or 5 fans. I was wondering, where do I plug these in on my motherboard/PSU?

Some fans should just be hooked up to the psu and run constant, others like the cpu, and possibly the rear exhaust fan can be put on the 3 pin headers on the motherboard.

Ill try and find you a few pictures.

Edit: The cpu fan will go on the 4 pin connector.

I usually run my exhaust fans at 100% and attach the others to a fan controller, or mobo header
