    Zoom and look at the pictures! You should See Sys_Fan1 (2,3 etc.) threre you should plug them in...
  3. 1 x 24-pin ATX main power connector
    1 x 8-pin ATX 12V power connector
    1 x CPU fan header
    1 x water cooling fan header (CPU_OPT)
    3 x system fan headers :D
    1 x front panel header
    1 x front panel audio header
    1 x S/PDIF Out header
    1 x serial port header
    1 x parallel port header
    1 x Clear CMOS jumper
  4. The first one is under the CPU socket in left, the second one is on the bottom in right between the USB and the colored one :D , and the third one is under the cpu in right ;)
  5. yes :D
  6. So if I had 6 fans in total where would i put the rest?

    Oh thats what i wanted to do... How can i upload images?
  9. And the connecter is only 3 slots for pins so would that matter if I just plugged it in to any 3 of the 4?
  10. Yes there is no problem the forth is for fan speed control so you don't need it...
  11. I have those connectors on my psu but the fan connectors are 3 pin
  12. Well you connect those 3 pin connectors into that and that into the PSU ;)
  13. Three pins go on the board where I highlighted in yellow.

    No he ask what if he has extra fans where to plug them in....
  15. Molex power or fan splitters.
  16. I have three extra fans out side the motherboard and only 4 molex connecters from the psu so would I have to keep a fan out of the build then?
  17. Yes...
  18. I use these fan splitters.

    Can you tell me how do you import images into posts?
  20. What does the fan splitter do? I cant really see it the picture gets blurry whwn I try to zoom in
  21. imageshack , photobucket.
  22. Lets you add extra fans to a fan header.

    I only add 1 Extra to each header.
  23. So I would need 3 to fit all 6 fans on the motherboard?
  24. I would , yes .
