Question

my case (antec 1200) has around 5-6 case fans, all of which have molex fan connectors. my psu(corsair 1000hx modular) has tons of molex cables, but would it be bad/overload to use all of them?
do you combine all the case fan cables and plug them in with only one molex connector? like you know how its bad to plug in tons of wires into the wall outlet, does the same principle exist with molex connectors of my psu?

You can use all of those molex plugs with no problems and no overload. Best advice on the wall outlet (although you can split them up) is to use only one plug for each wall outlet opening (normally 2 per outlet) and don't get a splitter unless absolutely necessary.

case fans dont really draw much power; you could easily piggy back 4-5 case fans together off one molex plug without any danger; on a good power supply though!


you dont have to worry about hurting a 1000 watt corsair >>>that baby will run a USB table saw
