Power supply: ATX power supply
What technology would When a computer is being built which three components must have the same form factor?
The case, motherboard, and power supply must all be the same form factor. Obviously the motherboard and the case would have to be the same or the motherboard would never fit in the case. Then the power supply must not only fit in the case, but have the same connectors as the motherboard. Otherwise it won't work.
Is it better to plug a case fan into the motherboard or the power supply and what happens if you connect it to both?
if the motherboard is designed for the case fan you are using its best to plug it into the motherboard, this will free up a spot on the power supply. Otherwise as long as the voltage and amps are the same it doesn't really matter. If you try to plug it into both you will double the power of the fan and very likely fry the fan.
