View Full Version : 3pin or 4pin case fan?

hi, the mobo I am about to buy (FIC AZ11E) has only one connector for a "smart" (temperature control) case fan but I`ll need 2 fans for my case: the rear (52mm) and the front (80mm). Which one do you recommend to put under temperature control? (the "smart" one) the rear or the front?

By 'smart' I assume you mean the ability to vary the rpm of the fan. With only a 52mm fan as exhaust you'll need every last rpm you can squeeze out of it, so don't even think about slowing it down. Which leaves your front 80mm...
