    Where do I plug the case fan into on the mobo? Not the heatsink, the fan that goes on the case. I have a ECS K7S5A and the manual doesnt tell me and either does the case manual.

    pleasse help asap

    You won't find it in the manual because you need to use the extra 4-pin Molex connections that come directly from the power supply. The constant draw of multiple case fans would kill a motherboard in nothing flat.

    I too have run multiple fans off the same header (before I knew it could cause a problem) But I never did have any problems. But then again, I wasn't using the very powerful fans.
