    Well Im sorry to sound like a newb but I recently just got a new pc case and it has like 8 fans and I was wondering how do I hook them up. The fans them selvs are all ready in the case but how do I hook them up to the power unit.

    It will depend on the connectors the fans have on them but they will likley be the four plug molex connectors that connect directly into a four plug connector off the motherboard. There is only one way that the plug will connect and you can still use the plug for another device or connect all the fans to one wire.

    Why you'd want 8 case fans is beyond me though, 1 to 3 suffice in almost all cases and produce much less noice.
