Ok so you most likely saw my prior post for the buidl I am doing I suddenly find myself trying to find out info my motherboard i picked doeisnt give.

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 is the one I originally went with. But now I am trying to be sure it can run all my case fans and the CPU fan but don't know.

I have 3x 200mm case fans [one intake, one top exhaust and one side] and a single 140mm top rear exhaust fan also going to have a Hyper 212 evo form cooler master on my CPU so another 120mm fan.Will this mobo support them all or shall i use my PUS? or buy another Mobo all together save myself the headach? Thanks alot in advance.

The ASRock 1155 I looked at had 4 chassis fan connectors (2 middle, 1 top, 1 bottom) and 2 CPU fan connectors (both top). In theory, they should accommodate the fans you mentioned, though I would suggest connecting the side fan to a molex adapter and run it off the PSU - it makes removing the side panel much easier.

Speaking of...you mention 3 200mm fans - what case are you using? I'm curious.


Hope this helps.

Not sure you need the side fan as In my opinion it will disrupt the air flow anyway. I Have a 200mm in front for intake, 1 120mm in the rear and 2 120mms on top for exhaust and things stay plenty cool ( Cooler Master 912 HAF case ).
