    i have 3 case fans linked together and hooked up to 1 power molex directly. now, does that mean all my fans are running as fast as they can? they are linked together and connected directly to 1 psu molex. r they running at full speed?

    if its with standard splitters (ie hte ones that came with the fans) then yes, all the connections are in parallel so they each get full voltage, and if your power supply can handle it full current --> full power/speed

    are they faster when you plug them in indivdually to your case fan connector on your motherboarD? you should atleast have the cpu fan, and one case fan connector.

    What kind of fans are they? Model number? (There are some fans that are really slow and quiet.)

    Did you hook them up in parallel or serial?

    they raidmax ball bearing fans. not sure bout model #, but it looks like every other 80 mm case fan. the led one is the one i put my hand to the most, cuz it closest, and it's not pushing out all the air i'm expecting it to.

    oh, yea. all the temp monitor software i use say there's 2 more fans that display no #s. i'm guessing the fans arn't connected to the mobo, but how do u connect them? i don't c any parts on the mobo that can receive the molex plug?!?! and the 3 fans are parallel. all connected together, using 1 psu molex to plug into the psu.
