The holes are pretty big... like you could slick a pencil through them. The screws that come with the fans obviously aren't going to be big enough. What do I do/buy/use to get it to work?
Also my motherboard only supports two fans... so unless I'm missing something, I'm going to have to connect them via molex on the PSU.
It's confusingly hard to find molex fans on NewEgg because I see most listed as 3 or 4 pin, and if there is a picture of the adapter, it still looks like a tiny CPU fan plug. I've only seen a handful of fans that look like they have a molex plug.
So if I did get a mobo fan, it seems like I'd have to get a 3-4 pin adapter to molex. The problem is there aren't any on NewEgg and only a few on eBay. That makes me think I've pointed myself in the wrong direction.
I really can't be the first person to run into something like this. A lot of people put extra fans in their cases and don't have ten thousand mobo fan plugs. So what am I missing?
Ideally I'd like to use these fans if they'd work:
The fans you have chosen give you 44.7CFM @ 19.1dBA the only saver is the 4 in 1 pack for 19 bucks.
My suggestion to you would be to go for cougars. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
That's 15 Bucks a piece but gives you 60CFM @17.7dBA
and plus the look really great.
and they come in lovely colors...
