Yes, if you want to control via motherboard and power via molex.

Like stated, it should be fine.

This reminds me of my first mod back in 1999. Back then was absolutely 0 mod stuff on the market. I decided that i wanted a light inside of my computer.

I asked my dad, he said to go and get a small car break light bulb and spraypaint it a high temp color. I was so excited, i put like 4 coats of blue on it. I then decided to wire it to the small 3 pin connector on the mobo.......

It was so beautiful for about 15 seconds, it really was. Then the motherboard went to sleep and never woke up from its slumber.
