Hey all,

Well... Im finally gonna get to build my own PC (X-Mas Present). I found a nice Tower case 10 slots, 420W Power supply, and 4 Fan holes. Now heres the problem. I need a Socket A mobo, to support a AMD Athlon XP 2000+ cpu. What i need help on, is I need a mobo that can support my 4 fans (actually 5, it has one on the side). Now can i maybe stick with my Shuttle AK32L (If you feel i should get a different one, please tell me, its just gotta be under 100 bucks) and maybe buy some sort of power splitter, to run the fans off of? Or do any of you know a mobo that supports 4 fans? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
-Limb

I would not run all the fans from headers on the motherboard, just the cpu fan and maybe one case fan. Run the rest of the fans directly from the power supply with adapters. (see pic)
