    Maximus V Gene 12v chassis fans?

    Hi there

    I have an old Asus Maximus V Gene board still running and about to buy new case fans for my system.

    I am looking at the Corsair 120ML PWM fans, but from what i can understand by reviewser, the optimal V for these is 12V because of the magnetic "motor". If they do not get the recommended 12V there could be noise issues and what not.

    Now in the manual of the Maximus V Gene it saids that all 3 cha_fan headers run +5V.

    Does that mean that it will run the fans at only 5V or that every fan that requires 5V and above will work?

    Might be a stupid question, but hope someone can help

    I'm sure it says, as all ASUS manuals say for FAN headers....1A 12V...12W...so those fans will be good to go
