Need an extra fan header

I just installed a Corsair H60 water cooler and it took up the only two fan headers I have on the motherboard. Now I do not have a case fan running just the water cooler. Does anyone know how I can add another fan that can be controlled? I could plug one in to the PSU but it would be at 100% all the time and loud.

Hello, what board do you have?

If you only have two fan headers (and if you have a little extra money), you can put a fan controller with display in one of your open 5.25" drives on the front of the case. NZXT has a pretty cool one, that's only about 27 bucks.

If you don't want to mess with a fan controller, you can also just get yourself a cheap little adapter for about $5.00, also a decent way to go.

Let me know if any of these ideas help! :D

My motherboard is GA-F2A85XM-HD3 with AMDA10 5800K. That fan controller looks like exactly what i need. The led colors are ugly but it will do. Thank you for the speedy response.
