I thought PWM fans ran off of 4pin connectors... maybe I'm mistaken

Nice build and pretty nice price on that RAM, +1

You are correct.

EDIT: Just scrolled down to see that you already knew that. Damn phones and their tiny screens. :p

Haha np man thanks for reassuring

All connectors on the board are 4 pin, and yea I'm kinda mad about the ram, I want to buy another kit..... but I ain't paying that much for it.

He may be mistaking PWM for molex?

RyneSmith [4 Builds] 2 points 9 months ago

I'm not sure, but I am right about the PWM correct?

skemble [14 Builds] 3 points 9 months ago

Yep. PWMs are ones that you plug into a 4 pin header on a motherboard and then can control speeds through Pulse Width Modulation software.

Ya that's what I thought but I hadn't looked at anything about PWM for awhile and was pulling that off the top of my head (now that I think about it I shouldn't have 2nd guessed myself lol)

how long ago did you build this? $300 usually gets you a 7970 these days

4 months ago before the R7 & R9 series was announced, before all of the AMD price drops. This was a pretty good deal on the GPU at that time.

madmean [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

yes, And my next will be a r9 290x

madmean [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

About 4 months, almost 5 now.
