Like so:

BTW the picture mgcook showed us, he didn't install his rhetostat thing.

you dont have to install it. it just controls the fan speed. if you dont it just runs at 100% all the time.

as for the cpu fan connector. it will be a 4 pin on the board, but you will see where the extra pin doesnt have the tab thingy on it. just plug it in that way. just look and use common sense and you will figure it out

the tuniq has 2 connectors. one for the board for the fan, and the other for the fan controller thingy.

i just chose not to use the controller.

does the system fans even matter where I plug em into? Cause Im just going to plug em into whatever ( some are 3 pin and some 4 ). Are you sure the tuniq tower runs at 100% with no controller on it? Im mainly installing the controller to help stabalize my 8800 GTX.,

yeah i had an adapter for the 3pin-molex and i tested it out on my dell LOL to make sure i didnt need the fan controller/rheostat.

if you want to stabilize the GTX download Rivatuner and set the fan speed to 100%..you dont need a controller for that.

no what I ment was as I said in one of my posts my GTX isnt screwed down cause its metal thing is blocking the screw hole. But I figured if I install the controller under the 8800 GTX the screw will actually touch the metal thingy and prevent it from moving down 1 mm.

and yes I already use rivatuner and its great! BTW setting your GTX fan speed to 100% all the time will reduce the life of the 8800 fan ( was told this by EVGA tech support )...but then againyou can just RMA it with EVGAs lifetime warranty :P
