hi...I've just realized that the budget asus mobo i've ordered does not have any case fan plugs.would it be ok to run a couple of case fans in tandem with the cpu fan using a splitter all running from the cpu fan plug?...thanks

if you have splitter, then in the future, buy on ebay or somewhere an adaptor from molex to say 4x3pin, i use it, two are 5v and 2 12v, its quite usefull.

dont mess with the cpu fan. u can use molex connectors from psu directly. or get one of those cheap&handy analog fan contoler.
