icue 465x RBG fan questions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

The case I want to purchase has 3 built in fans. I have 2 questions about that before I actually do so;

- After doing a little bit of research on the motherboard I want to buy (which is the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite), I found out it only has 2 fan headers. Does that mean I can't hook up one of the build-in fans to it? Or do they run on their own?

- Will the 3 fans be enough to keep my pc cool or is it necessary to get additional fans?

 

The reason I like the icue 465x because it comes with 3 RGB fans. It's my first build, so RGB is still hype for me.

I would like it if both answers to these questions are positive. But if that isn't the case, which case would you recommend?

 

Rest of my build if needed;

One header can power multiple fans up to a limit. The limit is defined as 1A (amp)in 99% of instances. Each fan will list how much amps it draws, and the icue 465 uses the Light Loops fans, which according to the website draws 0.3A.

You can use a 3 to 1 fan spliter (assuming the case doesnt already come with some kind of fan hub or spliter of it's own) and plug all the fans to one header without issue.
