Connecting case fans to pwr_fan connector
I am in the process of building my new PC and have a question regarding connecting my case fans to my motherboard. My case currently has 3 fans (HAF 922). My mobo (Asus P8P67 Pro) has only 2 cha_fan connections. I connected 2 of my case fans to the cha_fan connectors but now am left with one disconnected fan.
The mobo does have a pwr_fan connector that is not being used since my PSU does not provide a connector for that.
My question is can I connect my 3rd case fan to the pwr_fan connector? I'd like to be able to connect all three fans to the motherboard if possible without using a PSU molex. This way I can avoid additional cable clutter, having the fan speed constantly be at 100% and hopefully control fan speed thru the UEFI/Windows.
