scythe ultrakaze 3000rpm
I have just received the fan and I'm wondering if I should plug it in the fan controller or mobo(ga-ma790fx-ds5). The fan is rated at 0.6A which is near the max. of the mfc3(0.7A per channel). I have no clue about what motherboard fan headers can take but I'm thinking not much.

if its a good mobo then no worries. i would,however, go for the fan controller and maybe drop a good k rpm's for the db's :)

I plugged mine right into the PSU for full RPM goodness. Two of them at full throttle makes an excellent excuse when you "accidentally" don't hear your wife.

Better motherboards can often put out 1A/header or more. The owner's manual will often mention it somewhere, even if you have do some searching for it.

I've had mine on my motherboard headers.. until the jet plane took off, then hooked it up to a fan controller so I could hear myself think in the garage.

Got a suprisingly quick response from gigabyte. I was expecting to wait a week and apparently it 2.5A per header! :shok: Nice. :punk: Wow! who needs a fan controller...?
