Hi,

Just in my first build, i'm buying the 650i - that's set in stone. my case is already bought (NZXT Apollo) - it has a side panel mounted 120MM, and a back 120MM, there is room at the bottom front for a 3rd 120MM.

Checking the MOBO manual i downloaded, theres only 2 "Chassis fan connectors" on the board - how could i add the 3rd fan?

Would i have to connect this one direct to my PSU?

the case fans will probably use the Molex connectors that come out of your Power Supply, so you wont be connecting your case fans to the chassis fan connectors on the board.. so if you wanna use the chassis fans for some extra fans that didnt come with the case you can do that...

It is a good idea to add one more 120mm fan in front to get better airflow in your case. Yes connect the 120mm fan to the PSU (Molex connector).
