    Ok..... i'm using the Zalman CNPS9500 AM2 cooler. my question is...... am i better off connecting it to the CPU fan header, or one of the other chassis fan headers? i think it still adjusts it's speed automatically when i have it connected to the CPU fan header as the CPU temp get's higher and lower.

    Are you using the "Fan Mate"? If so, then it will control your fan speed depending on how you have it set.

    Personally, I connected mine to the CPU fan header and it works fine, zero noise.

    I use the fan-mate myself.

    My gpu cooler didn't have one so I just plugged that to the assosciated adapters it came with (5v for lower fan speed).

    My cpu fan is about 1400 rpm :cool: love it.

    The headers themselves should not matter but some mobo's need for you to plug it to the cpu fan header so it doesn't release a warning saying no cpu fan detected.
