    Default fan wiring again

    what would i be better off to do with 4 120mm 3pin fans...

    plug them all in indavidually.

    wire them all up to 1 molex.

    or got 3 , 2, 3pin to 1 3 pin connectors and a 3pin to molex...?

    if the last one is confusing it looks like a tree

    Depends on the wiring hell you are dealing with. First thing have you any spare fan headers on the MOBO you can use? If yes but distance is an issue then you could put them on a molex each or wire them all into one, - just check that rail can take it.

    Crazy

    You could fit a multi fan control board like this one, I'm going to use one myself in my new build, lots of the modding shops sell similar types of board.
