    I have the ASROCK DUAL 939 motherboard, it has two fan connectors, one for CPU and one for `case fan` 3pin.

    On the Thermaltake Tsunami Dreams case there are the regular big molex connectors for the case fans, but there is also a small brown 3 pin connector (same as cpu) with a single yellow wire only, coming from fan, would this brown connector go to my remaining `case fan` connector and do I have to connect the big molex connectors from the fan as well please.

    Hope you can help, thank you.

    "Sounds like" the fan requires the Molex connector because of the current draw,but you are provided with a 'fan status' connection via the 3 pin connector.

    I once connected a case fan to the MOBO 3 pin 'other' fan connector, and burned it out :eek:

    Fortunately nothing else was damaged and I then put it on a Molex plug, and it worked fine. Evidently it drew to much current.
