    Z490-E Fan Headers

    I'm intending to run 4 chassis fans on this motherboard.
    Other than the obvious CHA_FAN1 & CHA_FAN2 where would I connect the other 2 so they would also be Q-Fan Controlled ?

    Could use a splitter? Also have the M.2 fan (but I think it's setup differently).

    Yes, splitters are an option but then both fans will share the same setting.
    From reading the manual, I assume the M.2_FAN header will sense temp of the M.2 Drive.
    The CPU_OPT header is linked with the CPU_FAN
    The other one in the Q-Fan Controlled list is VRM_HS_FAN ??

    VRM_HS_FAN was designed for the included VRM fan.

    I guess splitters are the only way to go then.
    I must be the only one not using water cooling.
