Hi guys. I just bought one of those AMK cases with 5 fans in it. This is my first time building a system, so, my question is how do I connect all these fans to the PSU??? Do I have to daisy chain them some how??? can you tell me an easy way to do this :) . Also, is there any tutorials on the net that I can check out??

They should have either 3 pin or 4 pin connectors on them. If they don't, wire all of them in parallel, reds together, blacks together and solder on a connector to plug into one of your PSUs outputs using the +12 (yellow wire) to the reds and the black return wire next to it in the jack to the blacks. Glad I'm not a Technical Writer for a living :)

Hey hoot. I'M new at this so... Is there a tutorial on the net I can check???
I don't wanna mess up.
