ASUS PRIME Z370-A II Fan Headers

So I'm probably going to buy this motherboard, does anyone know how many fan headers is on the board. Going to be using with NZXT Kraken X52 240mm in a Fractal Design Meshify C. If there is not enough fan headers for my fan configuration do I just get a fan hub? Fans confuse me.

The Kraken X52 will have 2x120mm fans and the case will have 2x140mm intake fans at the front and 1 exhaust fan, I should be using the Kraken x52 as an exhaust also shouldn't I?

I made a little mockup of what the fan configuration would be, any suggestions or changes? https://imgur.com/gHFnocM

If I get PWM fans can they still be connected to the motherboard or do they need a PWM hub thing.

With that schematic you posted Yes.

You need one CPU header for the Kraken X52.

And the remaining Case fans are going to the 3 fan headers of the board.

So, the Kraken goes to the 1 x CPU Fan connector(s) (1 x 4 -pin)

And the three Case fans are going to:

1 x CPU OPT Fan connector(s) (1 x 4 -pin)
2 x Chassis Fan connector(s) (2 x 4 -pin)

Also you need to connect the fan cable set (for 4 fans) to the pump.

The SATA power cable form the pump to the PSU.

Lastly, you need to connect the Mini-USB cable from the pump to an available (*)USB 2.0 internal connector on the board.

  • (*)That board has 2 of these.
