How many 120mm fans will this MB take?

How many 120mm fans would I be able to run with this motherboard? I would like to run 4 to 5. I am not sure if this would be possible.

Thanks in advanced.

  1. Well, you have to tell us what motherboard it is.

    You can also run fans of the power supply if needed.

    Your board has 2 fan headers. one for the cpu and one for a case fan.

    They make adapters that allow one header to control 3 pwm(4 pin not voltage controlled fans) fans.

    This adapter takes power from your power supply allowing you to not overload a motherboard header. It is discontinued, but you can find similar at other stores as well.

    Running 2 fans of most motherboard headers is not an issue, but when in doubt, contact the board maker for exact ratings of the fan headers.

    If you have fans that are not overly loud or sound does not bother you, connecting fans to the power supply works as well(you will not overload a power supply with fans :) ).
