Question about fans

  1. well im building a pc and i have almost all parts except PSU which is paid for but still to be delivered...
    in my case i have only 1 80mm exhaust fan and i want to fit 2 more fans (preferably with coloured LEDs) in the front of the case.
    my problem is that after looking at my mobo (gigabyte GA-965P-DS3) i only see one place to put a fan :suspiciou
    how can i power the other 2 fans i'm going to add? would they go directly to the PSU?

    Some case fans come with 4-pin molex connectors that you can use to connect to the power supply like most of the other internal components. Your motherboard should have at least one "CHASSIS_FAN" header or similar though.

    EDIT: Some mobos have the case fans labeled as "CASE1" or something like that. I'm actually seeing a couple different headers on a similar board...
