Z87-D3HP Fan Connectors Advice
« on: November 28, 2013, 03:24:33 pm »
I have just ordered a motherboard (Z87-D3HP) with following fan connectors:

1 x CPU fan header
3 x system fan headers
1 x CPU_OPT fan header

i am quite a novice when it comes to this but currently have 1 CPU fan and 2 Chassis Fans.

I was thinking of buying two additional chassis fans.

My questions are:

Can I connect a chassis fan to the CPU_OPT connector ? if not what is the intention for this connector ?

Should I purchase PWM fans or not bother because there is no advantage as the Motherboard\software will control them ?
