    I wouldn't try that. That board has 3-4 fan connectors. Add 1 or 2 4-3-pin convertor to the molex power cable.

    you'll burn the traces feeding the 3 pin fan header if you try more than one fan. they are only rated to like 2 amps or so. Your best bet is buy a PSU that has a fan only molex out and has a connector for the MB PS fan control header to control the fans.

    Or you could wire your fans between the +5 and +12V on the molex connectors and thereby run them at 7V.

    Thank you Tarkus i figure that out but i had to ask . i order the above fan controler wish i think is the best idea of them so far . my mobo have 4 fan outputs plus i have molex conector. but only the CPU pin had speed control.
