3-pin vs. 4-pin fans


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I hate to link another post but i'm on my phone so it's hard to type a lot. Basically one is not better than the other but you can't mix and match both because the way motherboards handle it. I believe your Hero has PWM support for all fan headers, you can check the manual to make sure.

afaik

 

1. Yes, PWN fans can be controlled from BIOS and in Windows(some software) that are connected to MB.

 

2. 4 pin if the mobo also has 4 pins, otherwise they run at full speed

 

3. No, for 3 pins you need a separate fan contorller

 

Judging from the manual CPU 4 pin 1-2 and chassis 1-4 support pwn in bios so..
