So if i wanted to run all of the fans from the mother board where would i connect them all on the asus z270e? Also the fan in the back of the case connects to the cha_fan right?
The Asus Z270E
actually has a lot of fan headers: six! That's very uncommon in its price range. But as with most modern motherboard, the Z270E is marketed to appeal to users of liquid cooling, so some of these fan headers are given "special" names. Here they are:
1 x CPU Fan connector(s)
1 x CPU OPT Fan connector(s)
2 x Chassis Fan connector(s)
1 x High AMP Fan header (4-pin)
1 x AIO PUMP Header
In past generations, these would simply be labeled as CPU_Fan and CHA_FAN 1 through 5, but now even the names are "tricked out"! The good news is you can use any of these for your case fans. If you have a liquid cooler, go ahead and use the AIO header for the pump power lead (the big difference with this header is that it can't be set to zero RPM, which is important for pump use). You can use CPU OPT for the rear fan, and the Chassis Fan and High AMP Fan headers for the front fans.
