multiple case fans





adah101
I recently acquired a 4 pack of thermaltake 80mm fans with the nifty LED things. I wanted to put one in front of my HDD's and maybe another one up in my 5.25" bays. Only problem I've got is that I've only got 1 connector on my motherboard for a case fan. Are there splitters or something that you can buy to hook up multiple case fans? Or am I just SOL until I get another motherboard?

You can find splitters that will splice a hard-drive type molex off to a case fan connection; just buy 3 of those. Connect them to different power cables coming out of the PSU, so as not to overload any one cable.

You don't need that much cooling. Just put one in front of the hdds, and you are good.

Like ocalhoun said though, you can easily buy adapters. They are sold everywhere. I recommend Newegg: www.newegg.com

Just make sure you have good airflow. Hard drives don't usally need much cooling. I personal just soder the fan connectors together.
