Hey guys,
just checking the spec of the DS3 and they say it only has 1 system fan power socket? is this right? this doesn't really seem adequate on a board thats plugged as an overclockers mobo......

hope there's a workaround, as I've bought an antec 900 and thats got stacks of fans......... any advice would be appreciated!

cheers
Sam

Plug the rest into a molex connector? or maybe even a fan controller? link

The only advantage to using the motherboard connecter is that it tells you rpms. Plus it has another plug for the cpu fan so its more like 2 fans.

please excuse my absolute noobness! I've never used more than 1 case fan before, so have never needed to plug them into the power supply! I'd forgotten you could do that.

thanks for the advice
Sam
