MOBO: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/msi-b75a-g43-intel-b75-s...(x16)-d-sub-(vga)-dvi-d-hdmi-atx Case: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/sharkoon-vs3-v-black-chr... or http://www.scan.co.uk/products/coolermaster-k-280-black... I haven't decided PSU:http://www.scan.co.uk/products/550w-xfx-pro-series-core... Might get another 120mm fan. Will i be able to power the fans from the motherboard or can I power them from the psu, I aren't bothered about them running at max speed or monitoring them.

You could put a splitter on each of those two for 4 fans. You could also connect to your PSU. (May need an adapter though) mrhello123 February 1, 2013 6:35:05 PM what sort of adapter do i need? Also where abouts on the board are the two fan headers, I know where the cpu fan connector is but I can't see the others?
