The CPU is attached to the motherboard, the the heatsink and fan is put ontop of the CPU. The fan sucks the air in and blows it onto the CPU, thats how it works

See, you learn something new everyday (well, here you do anyway)

The fan port isn't used.

If your referint to when i posted about the fan port, i posted that before i fully read your post. It was 4:15 am and i was, and astill am, half asleep


I mis rwad your post and though you were on about a case fan, not a CPU fan, thats why i said you need to find out the dimesions for it

Sorry if i confused you

Yup, that fan goes on the CPU, and you can get a case fan, but you need to make sure its no bigger than 80mmx80mm

And dont worry bout it. I was in the same position last yearYou need to learn sometime. I suppose i didnt help much, for that im sorry but atleast you now know


If you need anything else answered, or any other problems, just ask

Meh, its 5:20am here, i think i might need to go to bed soon

well ive got my cpu and fan in, my ram, video card, and sound card, and case fan in, now im tring to figure out were to put the cords from the power supply cords , i believe ive got those right. i do have another question though with the cpu fan, is the blade of the fan supposted to be exposed or is there something you need to do so that its not, cause it seems strange having the fan like that, couldnt it cut some the cords that are near or something?
