Help me connect my case fans

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have bought a new pc case and it contains 2 fans, each one of them has 2 headers (x1 3pin + x1 Molex).

So I don't know if I have to connect the two headers at the same time, or only one of them?!!

can you help 
I'll attach an image of the headers

Only one.  Connect the 3 pin if you want your system to have some control over fan speeds; connect Molex if you just want them to run 100% of the time.  

I believe that's the distinction, anyways.

Thank you for responding 

I just did that and the fans are spinning well .
Yesterday I've read that connecting both of them will be better for the motherboard so fans will get their power from the PSU but I think that is not right.
I just wanted to be sure.
