Case Fan Connectors


I bought a new case: Cooler Master Storm Trooper.
It has 4 fans and my MOBO: Asus P8H67-M-PRO has only 1 CHA_FAN connector!
My PSU is Antec High Current Gamer 520w.

How can I get all fans working?

Thank you.

  1. You can connect them to the PSU, which will have them all running at 100%.
    You can get a fan controller to hook them up too, which would allow you to control how fast they are going.
  2. you should have 3 fan headers on the motherboard. one labeled cpu_fan, another labeled cha_fan which supports pulse width modulation(has 4 pins) and another labeled pwr_fan which does not support pwm. you could use these two fan headers in combination with 2x spiltter cables to run 4 fans, or if coolermaster have supplied adapters with the case to allow you to use molex/sata power cables, use those or a combination of the two.
