    i just bought a alienware case with 500w power supply. i bought it out of the box with no manual i have 6 fans not counting the 2 on the power supply itself. i can't figure out how the fan wiring works can anyone help? the fans and power supply are all installed in the case just not hooked up together. alienware told me since i didn't buy it from them they wouldn't help me.

    the fans hook to headers on the motherboard, they will be labeled fan1,2,3
    if you dont know this, you might want to get some help with putting this thing together, it just gets more difficult from here.

    i've connected everything to the motherboard the headers aren't labeled. does it matter what order they are hooked up.

    it does not.
    Look at your motherboard manual to verify they are fan headers. You can download it if you don't have one handy.
