    Either that, or they have a ton of slots on their motherboard. Mine has 8 spots, but it is a $210 board. You could use some splitters like he suggested, as those work great. Fan controllers also work great. That is how many have so many fans.
  4. You can attach as many fans as you like directly to the PSU using molex connectors.
    They will run full speed.


    But... why do you need so many?
  5. Exactly. That is overkill. Summer isn't that bad. You should be fine with 4 or 5 high performance fans like Noctuas or SP120/AF120 fans.
