ok, so i have a lian li pc65B case. it comes with four 80mm fans. on my epox 9NPA-SLI, there is a connector on the board for an extra fan, the fan i hooked up to this was the fan on to top of the case. there was another connector next to that for the CPU fan. finally with two fans left are both right next to each other in the front bottom of the case, there is a straight male 4-pin connector (rather than 2 pins on top of 2pins), and a straight female 4-pin connector. how do i hook those up to the PSU or motherboard. the case came with this wire that has a female and male connector that seem to work perfectly for the fan connectors, but on the other side are 2 small white 2 tiny prong connectors. im assuming this cable works with those two fans, but im not certain. how can i hook those 2 fans up. i dont think i have any extra fan connectors on the mobo.

cpu heatsink/fan - JCPU_Fan
Top "ceiling" fan - JPWR_Fan
Rear fan - JSYS_Fan

those "J***_Fan" things are the labels on the motherboard next to the connectors. i think the one labeled JPWR_Fan was the extra fan connector (the manual said this connector was for an extra fan if i had one). the problem is, i have 4 case fans, but only 2 fan connectors, not including the cpu fan. thanks in advance. hope i didnt make it too confusing

any help would be greatly appreciated. cpu temps are around 35-39 degrees celsius which are probably good temps. then again, i dont know what normal/optimal temps are....

I have a Lian-Li PC-65 case which is the exact same as yours but mine is silver. As far as the front fans go there should be a fan controller built into the case for them to connect to. Then just plug the little fan controller to a molex.

I read those fans that come with the case are really loud. I didn't use mine. I replaced all of mine with Cooler Master LED fans. Plus I got my own Vantec Nexus fan controller. If I were you Id do the same and trash those stock fans, get some new ones and get a fan controller. the Nexus lets you turn the fans completely off if you want to.

These Cooler Master fans I got dont have big 4-pin molex connectors on them either. Just small 3-pin connectors. I hate fans with the big 4-pin molex connectors on them. All those exra wires are just stupid.

But regardless, plug the rear fan to the mobo, the top fan to the mobo, and the two front fans to the fan controller on the front of the case.

Good luck.

thanks a lot for the reply, it was very helpful, but im still slightly confused. haha, ive never done this before. well, here are some pics of what im working with and if anyone can point me in the right direction or if im even looking at the right thing. theres a small board with a fan speed controller on the front. if this is the fan controller that you're talking about, where do i plug it into, those two small white connectors on the board that are empty?

i took a pic of the board and the connector, in a few mins i'll take a picture of this separate cable it came with, with 2 more (molex i guess) connectors and two small white connectors on the other end.

The "cable thing" looks like a motherboard to PSU adapter, so you can hook your Molex connector fans to your motherboard and vice versa.

If your last two fans have motherboard connectors, connect them to the adapter then connect the adapter to the PSU.
