Building my first PC(Fans question)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So, just built my first pc, and connected the fans in random motherboard(asus z370-f) places, does that work? only fan i connected in a specific place was the water cooler(h115i) on the IO-PUMP, i have more 3 fans, 1 connected in CPU_FAN, 1 in CPU_OPT and 1 in CHA_FAN1.

Shouldn't the Water Cooler be connected to the IO_PUMP? That post is from 2016, maybe the Motherboards changed a little bit?

Sorry I was unaware that newer motherboards even had a special header for pumps these days.

Seems like the way you're doing it is fine.

Yes, you may plug these in anywhere where there's a proper sized "header" or plug. Generally, headers are placed in convenience places to plug in a CPU fan, etc.

Yes but the CPU headers for example have PWM and thus can scale down the noise when the PC isn't doing something particularly intense
