I am a newbie and trying to build my first computer. I have a question on the Chassis Fan situation.
ASUS P5Q Deluxe P45 in Antec 900 Case.
In the user manual of ASUS, there is a warning saying that "DO NOT forget to connect the fan cables to the fan connectors. Insufficient air flow inside the system may damage the motherboard components. These are not jumpers! Do not place jumper caps on the fan connectors!"
The Antec 900 comes with the fans, however, they are using the molex power supply connector and with a tiny control. They don't have the 3-pin connector.
Do I have to buy extra chassis fan to fill in those chassis fan port? If not, there would be nothing plug into those ports (except my NV120 CPU fan). Would it boot up at all? Would the air flow be an issue?

Do not worry about it. The board will start without those fans connected, its more of a warning for people who "forget" to plug in a fan. The 900 will cool the board just fine.
