help! how many fans?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have ordered an Asus AM3 M4N68T-M Motherboard, however, I cant seem to find out how many fans (something like, say: a 4pin Molex Connection) this might support, not that I'll likely need them, but just wanted to know.
Any help w/ this would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks.

According to microcenter and the picture below, it has 2. 1 cpu fan header and one system fan header. However, you don't have to plug your fans into the motherboard. Your PSU's molex connectors will also accept fans with a 3pin to molex adapter.

thanks PulkPull, so i can power extra fans if I want from the PSU then, right ?
just have to either find fans that have 3 pins, or an adapter for 4 into 3?
thanks djsi38t, I did wonder about that, makes me wonder why some one would want a Nexos Multi-fan port then, oh well.
Thanks to both.

Most fans come with the adapter.

The controller is so you can control your fan speeds also usefull if you dont want or have your adapters from your fans. I have used them to great effect but now my Mobo has all the fan headers I need. They work especially well with mobos like that one that only have 2 headers.
