The fan power connectors support system coolng fans wth +12V. If the manboard has a System Hardware Montor chpset on-board, you must use a specally desgned fan wth a speed sensor to take advantage of the CPU fan control. Remember to connect all system fans. Some system fans may not connect to the manboard and wll nstead connect to the power supply drectly. A system fan can be plugged nto any avalable system fan connector.

The CPUFAN1 connector supports Smart Fan Control wth lnear mode. The Control Center II utlty can be nstalled to automatcally control the fan speeds accordng to the CPU’s temperature.

If there are not enough ports on the manboard to connect all system fans, adapters are avalable to connect a fan drectly to a power supply.

Before first boot up, ensure that there are no cables mpedng any fan blades.
