Hi ,got a question on cooling fans,have a new case which has an intake fan on front and exhaust fan on rear. My motherboard is a ASUS P5L-1394 .It has a connection for a chassis fan which is controlled by CPU temperature.Should i connect it too the front or rear fan or connect both fans directly to power supply,they came with adapters for power supply.Thanks for your help

Doesnt matter, its up to you.

If you want to monitor the speed, they need to be connected to the mobo.

If not connect them to a spare molex connector with adapters.

it does matter.

its not good having just one case fan with variable speed.

either run the case as a single fan system, ie remove the front one or run both fans at the same speed. however the motherboard proberly won't handle two fans off the controller without blowing. so it would be best to use the adaptors and run them off the powersupply.

Well I dont know what the chassis fan has to do with the CPU temp.

I cant see anything in the first post saying anything about variable speed anyway.
