Hello can someone help me? I just purchased the ZALMAN CNPS 9300AT SuperFlo CPU Cooler and have a Dell dimension 4700 however, the pin connection that comes with the fan is different than the pin connector on the Dell dimension 4700 motherboard. Is there a way can make this work? I thought about cutting the wires from my old fan that came with the dell dimension 4700 and saving the connector. This is a 5 pin connector with only 4 wires (white, red, black and blue) the fifth slot on the connector is empty. The new Zalman fan has 4 wires (blue, green, yellow and black) I would like to spliced the wires but wouldn’t know what colors to attach to since the wire colors are different on both fans.

Thanks

The Dell uses a non standard mount, an LGA775 mount will not line up.

Is there anything else I may be able to do in order to change the cooling fan to a very quiet fan?
