How to Plug Your Fan
If Connecting with Multiple Fans
*We recommend not to chain more than 5 fans as some motherboards may only deliver 1.0A per fan header. Please consult your motherboard specification.
Activate PWM Control
In the mainboard BIOS, you can activate and configure the PWM fan speed. Please note the examples below are for reference only. Refer to your mainboard manual regarding the settings in your BIOS.
