Connecting the Case Fan

Your case should have a case fan. The fan connector is usually the type that slips over three pins on the mainboard. See your mainboard manual to locate the case fan connection. Connect your case fan (Figure 71). Double check to be sure your CPU fan is also connected. Some case fans connect to wires directly from the power supply.


Figure 71: Connecting the PC case fan

See your mainboard manual to determine where the case fan is connected. The case fan is typically connected with a three-pin connector similar to the CPU fan you connected earlier.
