Default plugging 3 case fan on motherboard ?


Was wondering, since i have an ASUS P8P67 which have a pwd fan, cpu fan (4pin), cha fan (4pin) it is okay to plug 3x of this fan :

NCIX.com - Buy Coolermaster R4-L2R-20AC 120MM Blue LED Case Fan 2000RPM 69CFM 19DBA 3/4 Pin - COOLERMASTER - R4-L2R-20AC-GP - in Canada

on each motherboard fan plugs ?

The reasons of doing this is that i still havent got my fan controller yet and i have a watercooling system so the cpu fan is unused. My front fancontroller already are busy with the 4 rear fans.

Or it is better to plug them off alone on the PSU ?

your mobo should handle those easily, although i never plug anything straight on the pcb.

better have a second layer of protection, aka fan controller which youre waiting for. or the psu.
