Default Case Fan Question

I am planning on buy the Cooler Master Stacker 830 Case and it hold up to 9 120mm fans. Now I am planning on putting alot of hardware in this rig, and I want to use all of the fan slots. Now how would I be able to hook all those fans up? I dont think any PSU has enough 4-pin molex connections to supply power to all those fans. Any help is appreciated.

Hey dark strike1,
Welcome to T.F.!!


You can chain the 4 fans on the side panel together. Or chain 2-3 fans together, because chaining too many at once, the fans might not have enough power.

Each fan should have a male and female connector so you can connect many on one line.

Like turtile said, each fan has a female and male connector. So this would allow, for the fans to connect to each other, and then to a 4-pin power cable, from the power supply.
