Case fans....

Hi there,
I bought 2 YS-TECH case fans (12v DC, 2.76w output) with the 3 pin motherboard connector on it, will it be ok if i plugged these into the chassis and the PWR fan headers without burning the motherboard headers out on my EPoX 8KHA+ ?
I just dont wanna do something stupid thats all

Thanks in advance

If your worried cant you just plug them into the 12 on a HDD power connector (black and yellow)

Im not sure if 3watt is too much or not.
There was a guy on here a day or so aggo who killed a header using a delta fan. Find out what wattage that is and you will know whats too high.

I run all my fans from molex connectors with a homemade rheobus. With two high wattage fans like that you might want to make one at some point as there probably going to be noisy.

What is the RPM of the fans. I usually, as a rule of thumb, never put anything on the board that goes above 6000 and even then I would think twice about puting a 5000 on the board. But if they are simple case fans and if I am guessing correctly they run around 2500 to 4500. I would go ahead and put them on. But that is just me.

You should be fine. I've had my delta plugged into my mobo for months with no ill effects. I am running an Abit board tho, they give ample wattage to the fan headers. I'm not sure with Epox.

The headers on the board are 5W max, but as a rule I never go above 4W.

This should have been included in the below average manual (in my opinion, covered this in another thread) but wasn't.

I'm using the 80mm 2.76W YS-Tech fans as well and they're ideal for the motherboard.

Only 7000 RPM Delta (or equivalent) jet-engine monsters drawing more than 5W need PSU connectors.

Send a message via ICQ to proze

i mailed epox about this when i first got my 8kha, and the chap there told me the 8kha could handle 5w on the fan headers. so it's a no-go for the deltas, but you'll be okay with most normal fans.

Proze is quite correct about the Delta 6,800rpm fans.

Upto 5w is an acceptable consumption throughput for the fan headers on the premium boards.

This is why Globalwin do include warnings and adaptors with their coolers such as FOP-38.

Fan rpm monitoring is not the be all and end all. The longevity of the mainboard is.
