    Hi guys just fitted a thermal take butterfly 480 watt psu..
    I have one question.. I have a fan controller to fit with this however i have 2 fan ports that i can see both are fitted with front and rear fans so where does this other connector go? i have the a8v delux mobo 939 and 3800+ processor.
    Any help would be great

    I suggested the one on the motherboard, but he is already using this for the rear case fan.

    One other thing mate, are the 2 case fans being controlled, or just running at full speed all the time?

    that little controller, on my system anyways, there are three connectors, one for exhaust fan, one for cpu fan, and one for power supply fan. the power supply has two "fan only" connectors on it. to my assumption, that little connector gets told that the computer is got, and the PS ups the speed of the fans connected to the "fan only" connectors.
