Second CPU Fan

Hi,

I want to add a second fan to my HSF Enermax ETS-T40-TB. My motherboard only has one CPU fan connector. There is a pwr fan connector. If I connect the second fan to that will it work correctly. By that I mean if the original fan is running at a lower speed and the second fan runs at full pelt all the time won't it create an imbalance in the push pull?


Thanks
Haider

    You could go with one of those things. Tom's did a test about different fan positions and adding a second one to a CPU didn't actually make hardly any difference at all.
  2. Leave the heatsink fan plugged into the CPU_Fan header; or else the computer will shut off.

    You can add a fan and connect it to any available fan header on the motherboard for speed control in the BIOS OR connect it directly to the PSU; it will run at full speed.

    Try to match the CFMs of both fans as close as possible; it is not critical that they match.

    If you decide to go with just one fan, make it a "pull" fan as opposed to a "push" fan; the air flow will be better; more laminar.
