Hi sinbin

That may work, also if your Motherboard etc is supported try SpeedFan - Freeware its a very handy application.

Most likely. The only way to know for sure is to try it.

personally I like to try and stay away from using the motherboard fan headers whenever possible ( cuts down on the power used directly off the motherboard.
However you appear to have an adequet power supply so it's worth a try, like Ciara posted speed Fan may be of some help.

I also dont like using mobo headers.will it affect my mobo.
Anyhow i used the sys fan header on mobo now the the fan is much leass noisy seems to be spinning at 1000rpm rather than 2000rpm which drives u insne!.
In bios i have system fan control enabled which i think controls the speed of the side fan on that mobo header.thanks for help

Power draw for one case fan is minimal and won't hurt a thing.

Where trouble starts is people try using a Y-connector and running two case fans off the case fan header.
That is a no-no!

I just posted this on a previous post.., Try to get anti vibration fan screws. they come in handy, they will reduce any sound coming because of vibration of the fan.
