I decided to have a go and build my first mini itx computer using an Gigabyte e-350 (usb 2 version), which I'll provide the link for. I have used a new Fractal mitx case and I have loaded it with x2 1200mm (front and side), fans and x1 920mm rear fan, as this machine will be left on 24/7 pretty much.
Anyway, there doesn't seem to be any sockets for my fans that fit. In fact, there is only one 4 header pin for a system fan and one 3 header pin that the cpu fan is already using. Basically my 3 Fractal fans all have 3 pin plugs.
Is there some sort of adapter I need or is the motherboard unable to run these fans?
Also, when connecting the F-panel sockets, I had x2, 7 pin plugs, one saying AUDIO, and the other saying 98,AC (they seem to be interconnected within the same loom). I've stuck the AUDIO one in as there isn't another 7 pin audio socket on there for the 98,AC. I take it that's ok?
I've attached a picture too. Gigabyte GA-E350N E-350D A45 FCH VGA HDMI 7.1 Channel.. | Ebuyer.com
Thanks in advance :-)
