Default Re: Question about 3 pin fan connectors

good idea, once I get the fan controller, I will just plug them all into it. Do I only have to plug the controller into the motherboard?

Ok another question about a fan controller, I was looking at them and I was wondering how do they power the fans? Such as this one Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE FP33-B Controller, Panel - Controller Panels

Edit*
ops, sorry for the double post.

Look at the third picture. You will see where you plug in the fans, controller connections and the 4 pin molex from you psu which powers it. With all of your fans you would want a larger on as that one will only control 3 fans.

Yeah I know it can't control a lot, but I was thinking I could have 3 of my fans going all the time and the other 3 on the fan controller. Sound like a good idea?

Also, do you think I will need 3 pin fan extension cables? Because I don't know if the fan cables and the controller cables will be long enough, I am also using a cooler master 690 case, so there is a decent amount of room.
And, which fan controller would you recommend from newegg?

EDIT
How is this controller? Newegg.com - Thermaltake XCONTROLLER 5.25" Drive Bay Kits - Fan Controller w/ LED Light - Controller Panels
