Will i be able to hook up 5 fans to this power supply?

1 x Main connector (20+4Pin)
1 x 4+4 Pin EPS 12V
2 x PCI-E
5 x SATA
4 x Peripheral
1 x Floppy

Yes, you can buy a molex to 3-pin connector. Although you won't be able to control them. Then you will have fans screaming full speed @ 12V. If you are not purchasing a fan controller I suggest splitters for your case fans.

You do know you plug the fans into the MOBO fan headers?

I was planning on buying this fan controller. I would use it for the 3 out take fans and just let the 2 intake fans run full speed.

Also where do i install that controller?

Get a 5.25" bay fan controller so you can mount it by the optical drive.

I'm actually selling my NZXT phantom full tower now to buy a smaller case if you're interested (will come with 5 fans already).

Think I'm going with this tower. LINK

This fan controller. LINK

And this power supply. LINK

Thanks for the offer blue, but for my first build i'm going to buy everything new.

With all those setups will i need any adapters to set up fans?

re: New Case for PC Gaming Build.
you should probably post your entire build plans in the OP if this is your first build. and to echo some other posters comments - you dont need 5 fans.

I would do that but i already have that video card in an older desktop. So, to save some money i'm just taking it from my older desktop and adding to the new one. Ill eventually run a dual monitor and get another vid card.

Its a budget build so the hybrid crossfire should work pretty well for his budget

Okay, i feel dumb asking but what is hybrid crossfire? Just using two graphics cards?

Get a modular power supply. Trust me. You can use that and a reasonable case for your next 3 builds.

Thinking about the case. Anyone have any thoughts?


Actually used that case a few months ago in a customer's computer at his request. It was a surprisingly good quality case for the price. If you like the look, I can attest to the fact that it won't be a bad purchase.

Gaming PC.... 7750?

Rosewill makes quality budget products. They make a little of everything, too. My old psu and current wireless router are both Rosewill products, no complaints from me.

X100000 on a modular psu. I had an ocx 600ish watt that worked really well. I'll try to get you a link when I get home

I'm looking for a good case under $60.


Have this one Brand new. Will sell it to you for $60 if you are in Baton Rouge area. Even have some extra fans with it. Bought it and never used it. It is just sitting around.

The one I have DOES NOT have USB 3.0 on it.

re: New Case for PC Gaming Build.
thats a sleek case. i have seen comments that the cable management port at the base (for the main psu lines) is slightly out of place (too far back). what did you end up using instead of it?
