Connecting HDD power to Fan????


Standard Member
Hi, Just wanted to know if you can connect HDD power connector to fans.
I bought an Antec Twelve Hundred Case and it has 6 Fans altogether and I have a be-quiet 750W power supply which has only 4 Fan power connector.
What I want to know is whether it is possible to connect the leads which supply power to HDD to the Fans? (leftover)

Thanks for helping guys. :lease:

Not sure about that PSU, but on mine i don't have any worries.

I use a Y splitter to connect the hard drive first and then i connect the fan to the other branch of the Y and this works.

Thanks you guys for replying. Was without a computer for some times now. Was busy building my computer. Manage to connect it.

Thanks again.
