I have just bought 2 PWM fans but all of my CPU fan headers are full. Can I plug the PWM fans into the regular system fan headers and still have speed control?
 
Thanks

I think you might be able to use third-party software to control them if you do. I'm not honestly sure about the control, but I know they will work fine. If it is of major concern to control all of the fans, I would invest in a good fan controller; you can get one for probably $40 to control 4 additional fans from the motherboard.
