Case Fan Connectors on the Motherboard

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?

Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2G DDR5 PCIE 3.0

    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.
