Question Am I a crack head noob ???

this might sound retarded.
I have 4 power supply hookups for hard drives and cd drives but they are all full. I just bought 6 new fans and in the pictures they look like they have the same hookups like the hard drives and cd drives is this right ?




I feel really stupid

Well, get a few splitters/Y addaptors for the molex plugs or get a couple converters if you have some 3pin mobo connections... Or a new PSU. Hehe, maybe some old little AT PSU just for the fans

You may want to get a new PSU. Ones that come with cases are pretty cruddy unless they are in an Antec case.

Here is a few I recommend.

Ultra 500W PSU - $89

Thermaltake Silent PurePower 420W - $52

Thermaltake Silent PurePower 420W - $65

I'm just thinking...why spend so much on a whole new PSU when the old one is apparently working fine. I'm assuming most of those fans are just case fans? You could easilly find some old AT PSU for free and just cram it in there. Hehe...I may just try that sometime
