    Default What Do You Do if Your Motherboard Does Not Have Enough Fan Connectors?

    Most motherboards have a sufficient number of fan connectors for every fan in an average case, but some cases have more fans than a motherboard may have fan connectors (for example, my current computer is within a Cooler Master HAF XM case, which has front, rear, side, and two top fans, but I was thankfully able to find a motherboard with a connector for each fan, as well as one for the CPU cooler), so, I am wondering: what does a person do if their computer's case has more fans than their motherboard has fan connectors? Are there duplicators that allow two fans to be connected to the same connector?

    There are several options. Some power supplies have fan connectors in the bundle. There are standalone fan controllers as well. There are also fan hubs that allow you to connect multiple fans to a single connector, but make sure that it has its own power so that it doesn't draw to much from the motherboard and fry the output.

    Fan Hubs on Amazon...

    Here are some fan controllers and a few fan hubs sprinkled in on an amazon search...

    Hope this helps.
