I recently purchased a fan to mount on my heatsink with zipties, and when I purchased the fan, it said in the description (4 pin standard case cooling) so i assumed a molex or something...to my suprise its something i've never seen before.
It's even different from the old nvidia fan's 4-pin. Any ideas how I could get this connected and running? Anything to buy, an adapter or splitter so I can use this? I've tried searching for one but I don't know what the hell to look for O_o.... I'm pretty sure my mobo and PSU doesn't have a connector that will work with this.
just plug it into a fan slot on your mobo. i believe the reason that its a four pin instead of a three is because you can connect that onto your cpu heatsink and connect that into the cpu fan slot on your mobo.
theres a pic of a random mobo from newegg if you zoom in on the pic you'll see that there are a quite a few case, cpu, and psu fan connections that are all 4pin. the old fan connections are all 3 pin...i really dunno why but i think that the extra pin allows you to control your fan speeds better?
