Fans are Driving me Crazy!

Hey guys,

So I have bought the ASUS ATX Z-97 A MOBO for my new build. I am using the Corsair 750d for my case and the Corsair H100i for my cpu cooler. My issue is if I have enough fan headers and if I do not, what can I do about it. I am removing all the default case fans and adding 3 Corsair AF140s and 2 High Performace SP120s plus whatever the h100i needs.

Link to Motherboard: https://www.asus.com/ca-en/Motherboards/Z97A/ Link to SP120s : http://www.corsair.com/en/air-series-sp120-high-performance-edition-high-static-pressure-120mm-fan Link to AF140s : http://www.corsair.com/en/air-series-af140-quiet-edition-high-airflow-140mm-fan Link to H100i : http://www.corsair.com/en/hydro-series-h100i-extreme-performance-liquid-cpu-cooler

I have read the info about the mother board and it comes with: 1 x CPU Fan connector(s) (1 x 4 -pin) 1 x CPU OPT Fan connector(s) (1 x 4 -pin) 4 x Chassis Fan connector(s) (4 x 4 -pin)

I will have 2 High Performace SP120s, 3 AF140s and a Extreme Performace H100i.

Do I need to buy some Y adapters to fit in all the fans or can I put a fan in the CPU OPT Fan connector. Also if I need to by a fan split-er what should I get?

Thanks

Something like this is what you need. I wouldn't plug the fans into the CPU header.

Ok thanks for the link. Will this affect their performance?
