    Z370E with Three Case Fans

    Hi guys, I'm wondering what the best/easiest way to run my three be Silent Wings 3 case fans is. There are only two true chassis_fan headers on the Z370E. Currently I have one of the intake fans plugged into the m.2 header, but this (unsurprisingly) seems to respond to the temperature of the m.2 drive and not the cpu/overall temperature.

    Is there some way that I can reconfigure the m.2 header to behave like the other chassis fan headers? That would be the best solution imo. Barring that, my other two options are:
    1) Run the exhaust fan in the cpu_opt header. This isn't theoretically a terrible solution, but it would make cable management a nightmare to get everything in place.
    2) Buy a pwm fan splitter. This is the obvious answer, but if possible I'd like to avoid it.

    Thanks.

    Besides getting a fan controller you can control through software I think you got your options. Personally I use one of the new Asus graphics cards with their own fan headers and have the fan blowing the most air to the GFX card hooked up to that.

    I ordered a Rosewill PWM fan splitter earlier, it should be here by the end of the week. I'll just have to wait.
