GA-Z170-HD3P fan conectors questions
« on: April 11, 2017, 07:16:59 am »

First, sorry for my horrible english.

My questions are about fan conectors in GA-Z170-HD3P motherboard.

1.- What's the maximun amps o watts support in CPU_FAN, SYS_FAN1 and SYS_FAN_2 PWM conectors? I want to connect 2 fan with 0.299A each in SYS_FAN2 and SYS_FAN3 with splitters. Can I do it safely?

2.- Why SYS_FAN3 connector does not appear in BIOS smarfan setup? I can't configure his fan curve. :(

3.- SYS_FAN1 and SYS_FAN2 are full PWM conectors or their regulation is by voltaje? I think is only by voltaje. Can I change this in BIOS setup?

Anyway, motherboard works fine!

Looked for an answer to this, but didn't didn't find anything definitive. 

Typically the connectors are 1A.  I would check with Support to be sure.  Some have had fan speed performance issues when using splitters.

Not at home now, but my board has 4 headers, but only 3 are controlled in BIOS if I recall correctly.  I think I'm using a 400~600 RPM fan on that un-managed connector.  3 pin.  Been a while since i looked inside my case.  It has a window, but sits under my desk.
