I recently put together a new gaming PC. The PC runs fine, but I have a few issues. Firstly, the case (NZXT Tempest) has 5 fans, but the motherboard (EVGA nforce 780i SLI FTW) only has 4 "3 pin" fan connectors. How do people end up using all these fans, or do most people just leave them off?
Also, I noticed that I couldn't plug all the cables coming from the front portion of the case. I found an HDAudio cable, and plugged that in, but there were also like 6 individual plugs which I couldn't find a spot for (the manuals offered little assistance) (the plugs are MIC-IN, MIC-POWER, GROUND, L-OUT, R-OUT, L-RET, R-RET). Do I need all those individual plugs in, or will the HDAudio plug make those pointless (they are on 1 cord, as if they were intended to be plugged in together, or intended to be an either/or situation).
Sorta on the same topic, the front panel has 2 USB slots, but I could only find 2 USB connectors for the motherboard (which are being used up by the 4 USB slots from the back of the tower). Is there an adapter, or should I just never use those slots?
I'm fairly new to all of this MOBO stuff, so any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
