? about adding fans


Recommended Posts

Hey I was going to add 2 more fans to my case(one under the hd and one on the side). More for aesthetic reasons than any... anyway my mobo only has one extra pin for a fan, which is currently being used by my exhaust fan.

 

Would it be safe to splice the other fans into the exhaust fan wiring? Does the psu just give a specific amount of voltage to the single fan pin or would adding the other fans cause an extra draw? Would the extra draw cause any harm to the psu or any other components?

The fans I'm thinking about using don't have those connectors. I guess I could just make up a harness for it using some spare connectors.

 

Or grab something like this,
