Daisy Chaining Fans!
Posted 29 March 2011 - 08:27 PM
Because my mobo has only enough 3pin connectors to run 2 fans, i need to run 5/6, how would i get around this?
I dont wish to buy my new case,fans,psu, without knowing that i may need a new mobo?

Also, I made a fan thing (external, with a 12V DC adapter) with 7 fans (6 80mm, 1 120mm) and they're all connected in parallel with one wire, which isn't particularly thick. It runs perfectly fine.
Need a Windows ISO image?

Most 12V rails can support 3-4 hard drives on one Molex daisy chain. Fans only pull about 10% the power of a hard drive so you're fine!
