Molex Fans to motherboard Header

  Fullywired 19:20 14 Jun 2008

hey guys!

i have an ECS KA3-MVP motherboard with a clear acrylic case, my case has 5 blue LED fans installed, all connected to molex connectors.

are there any adapters about to connect the fans to the motherboard headers, and if so will this slow the fans down when they are not neccesary, in turn making my pc quieter?

Seems to be sold out on that site. Get them from eBay - e.g. click here. G

Don't try and put several fans through one or two motherboard headers.

Firstly they may take too much current and damage the motherboard.

Secondly, one header should only monitor and control one fan - the sensing/control circuits may not work correctly.

If you want to control the speed of several fans, get a proper fan controller.
