Hello All,

I am in the middle of my first build and I have a simple question regarding the case fan male connector/pins I see on the mobo : CPU fan, sys Fan 1 and sys Fan 2; I know that I will connect the CM 212 EVO which is setup in a push/pull configuration to the CPU fan connector. However, I have six additional fans in my case.....x4 120mm fans, x2 200mm fans but I only see the x2 sys Fan (4 pin) connectors on the board. Do I connect them into the power supply into the x6 peripheral cable inputs on the PSU or somewhere else on the mobo?

System specs:
Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2G DDR5 PCIE 3.0
Cosair GS 700
Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad Core
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing

Corsair Vengeance 4GB (2x 4GB) DDR3-1600

You can use two of the fans on the board and the rest you connect directly to the PSU usually to a 4 pin Molex.
