But now about the fans in the Antec 1200. Do those connect to the PSU? Like I said earlier the hard copy of the case manual I have offers no advice about it(because it's probably obvious as well). If so, where and how? Because I had two fans in my last case and they had tiny connectors that just attached to the motherboard. These are much bigger, and have 4-slot connectors that look similar to other PSU connectors.

Left side is the white molex and right side is the SATA.

Do /all/ Molex connectors get connected to the PSU?
EDIT: Nvm, I'm reading http://forums.bit-te...ad.php?t=174457, and they do in fact get connected to PSU.
Now.. ah.. I don't have that many spaces free on my PSU. And there's six fans. I think that's a bad thing?

You may want to see if you can find some that are a little longer to reach all your fans. Now just a word of caution...try to keep the wiring back away the normal airflow of the system. Zip ties or velcro fasteners work great for this.

I have one that says "FAN ONLY" on two sides of it. Except there's two pins in the middle part, and two.. metal things in the connectors on the ends with the connectors. Like this => http://images.google...htt...sa=N&um=1
Then I have only two other connectors that are kinda similar in my PSU-bag-of-cables.
It's hard to explain but one has a four slot connector that looks like it goes into the PSU with two ends following(like in a stright line one after another). On the attached ends are what look like Molex connectors with grip things on them (but not in that Y shape). The other cable is just like that one but with three molex connectors attached to it.
Do I have enough to work with?

It wouldn't hurt to have some extra's anyway. The black ones look like Molex connectors also and since they say for fans on them then that is what they should be used for.

In the meantime could you tell me how to connect the PSU & fans to them?
Posted 09 January 2010 - 03:38 PM
The fans would attach via the connections you are talking about. One per connection.
It sounds like you may have a Modular PSU which means no cables are permanently connected to it and that is why you keep mentioning the Bag of connectors.
If you can get the make and model of the PSU I can take a look at that for you.

^ A bunch of images of my PSU
and yeah it says "Modular Power Supply" right on one of the images, you're right about that

Makes airflow much better without all the clutter.

I'll post an update if I finish/get lost tomorrow. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, and the help so far (in both of my threads)! I'm still pretty unintelligent concerning hardware and sound incoherent when trying to talk about some things, ahaha..

I will await your results tomorrow.

I've found a very good deal on a new screen for that laptop screen that got cracked I complained about in the other thread.
I'm just trying to figure out the schematics of the machine so I can do the replacement manually myself and save some money.
Can you point me in the right direction or got an idea of what to search for on the internet?
It's a Sony Vaio PCG-8Y2L (VGN-AR520E)
And sure I'll take pictures tomorrow ;o
