I'm kind of a n00b to this whole computer-building thing, and have a question about cooling. I have five Apevia 120mm fans (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) that I want to plug into this Gigabyte motherboard (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...). Will this work? Thanks.

MB seems to have two fan headers. Fans seem to have molex connectors. You can plug them all into you PSU, but need adapters to plug into MB. One on MB is for CPU (4 Pin), so that only leaves Pwr fan (3 pin) available.

Opps. Two more sys fan plugs , 3 pin on other end of board away from cpu.
If you look at top view (click on it) of board on NE. Zoom twice (+ +) and pan around the board. You can see the connectors. Sys Fan 1 and 2 near USB headers CPU north of cpu socket.
Look at the connectors on this one N82E16835186033. (Not Green) . You need somthing like this or adapters from molex to 3 pin fan. You can hook all 5 to psu but no control or speed reading. You can do the same with the fan to see the connectors on it. They are not listed under specs.
