  1. On my GA-7VRX (2.0) my cpu fan is connected in to the cpu fan slot and beside the cpu slot is a system fan slot.

    My question is what is the system fan plug there for and if you plug fans into it were do you put them?

    Its for the case fan that normally sits next to your cpu, sucking hot air out of your case. Most cases have one at that location, though usually, they tend to be of the 4-pin variety, and so won't connect to your mainboard. You can always replace it with a 3-pin fan if you prefer, or you could even attach your PSU's speed sensing wire to monitor its fan speed. Most users only use the cpu fan connector.

    8CM Fans mate, or a dual fan PSU might have a connector on it that'll go there :)
