I own a Corsair 550d (quiet case) and an Asus P8Z77-V LK Motherboard.
The case comes stock with two front 120mm intake and one rear 120mm out fan. However, it supports 2 120/140mm on the side and 2 120/140mm on top (not being used YET).
I recently moved to a place that is considerable warmer than before, and am noticing that my fans are having to work a lot harder.
I would like to buy and install a couple more 120/140mm fans in the side of the case (and potentially upgrade to a 140mm in the back exhaust), but my dilemma is that i dont know if my Mobo can support more fans.
I opened the case (for a cleaning) today and looked around the Mobo for more of those (excuse my ignorance) "3-peg fan plug ins" (as i saw that was what my other fans were plugged into) and i could not find any more that looked similar.
Im sure that the mobo supports more than 3 stock fans... but i dont know what im looking for !
I know this is likely tedious for some of you, but any help would be appreciated !
You have 3 (4)pin fan connectors. When you put more fans in they come with y-connectors so you can put 2 fans to 1 connector. Or you can wire them up to the case fans and use a molex connector and hook them to your power supply.
