    how many do a mobo usually have? not including the one for the cpu. all the mobo i have seen only have 1 header for a case fan . does that mean i can only have one case fan?

    u can buy an adaptor so it will run of the same supply as the hdd drives etc, rather than drawing more current throught the mobo. u can have as manys fans as you like.

    My Asus board has two fan headers in addition to the HSF header.

    I don't use them because the mobo wants to run the fans at max rpm all the time...

    KLR,
    This is the fan adaptor you will need...

    They are common as dirt, any computer store should have them.
    What are the two lights on the front of your case for?
    If they are the power supply indicator and HDD activity light, then there are very specific places that they will plug into your motherboard.
    If they are just decorative lights on your case front you can plug them into any unused molexs from your PSU.

    Edit: of course I have case fans. Out the ying yang in fact. I made my own fan control panel and am still screwing around with placement.
