Default Number of Case Fans

Hello folks,

Just one quick question about fans, I'd like to get 2 of these AeroCool Aeroquadro 80mm Case Fans:

My motherboard manual says that I have: (Mobo:

- 1 power fan connector

- 1 cpu fan connector

- 2 chassis fan connectors

I already have a 120mm TriCool plugged in and working, so can my motherboard support only 1 more 80mm fan?

Thank you in advance.

Just get fans that have a 4-pin Molex connector, then you can have pretty much as many as you want.

Thanks so far for the help.

So is the Aeroquadro (listed above) MOLEX-abled?

Thanks again.
