Hi,

In the interest of keeping my newly built HTPC quiet, I was wondering whether I could connect my 2 Fractal Design R2 Silent Series 80mm case fans to the CPU_FAN2 header on my ASRock Pro3-M motherboard using a splitter? I have no other way of controlling the speed of these fans (I don't really want them running at full speed constantly connected directly to the PSU), and have observed that when I plug 1 of them into CPU_FAN2, its speed is varied in accordance with the CPU temperature, and consequent speed of the CPU cooler. This seems ideal to me, I just wonder whether it is safe to do this?

Many thanks.
