I am running 2 120mm fans on my case

One is a Sunnon 108cfm fan
the other is a Dick Smith Electronics (Australia's version of Radio Shack) 108cfm fan they are both the same everything just different brands.

Now whenever I run one or the other of a Fan header on my mobo they run kick ass deffinatly 108cfm and 43db and totaly kick it.

Then when I run them off the 4pin Perphiral plugs (the ones with that are for HDD, CD-ROMs, FDD, etc etc etc...) and they are realy cr@p! like 50cfm and 15db and not much woop @ss or nothing!

I have a 250w power supply
and am running a

ATX Abit BX6 mobo
Wearns CD-RW
Aopen CD-Rom
Seagate 13.1 gb UATA66 HDD
2 x 108cfm fans
Thermaltake Blue Orb
Thermaltake Golden Orb (modifed with a 60mm Sunnon Fan)

A friend of mine said that the mobo has transistors to up the amps on the Fan headers.

but the 4pin cable doesnt and the other stuff is drawling to many amps. so they run so cr@p.

But to test this I removed all the items and they still ran cr@p. is there less amps going through the 4 pins cables than the Fan headers??

What does anyone else do with there kick ass Cases? with those thousands of fans?
