    i've installed the processor and fan, but where do i connect the fan
    connection to, the CPU_FAN or PWR_FAN?

    new to all this, so be gentle :)

    it's a A7V333 motherboard by the way.

    thanks

    Well, processor = CPU so you can guess you connect it to CPU_FAN. ;)
    Mainly because of monitoring options; the other connection will work as
    well BTW.

    On that you can put another fan, say to extra cool down your power supply,
    or your HD if you want.

    Oh, OK. Never mind - use CPU_FAN for the first processor.

    If you had a P2B-DS, the second processor fan should connect to PWR_FAN,
    leaving CHA_FAN for the power supply fan. Logical and consistent
    labelling, isn't it? :)
