Can't connect 4 pin fan to 3 pin cpu header 'cause of stupid capacitor.

I have recently bought a new quiet heat sink & fan. The fan has a 4 pin connector that's compatible with 3-pin motherboard headers. My motherboard has a 3-pin header.

The problem is the 4-pin fan connector is blocked from getting to the 3-pin header by a stupid capacitor that's stuck right up against the 3-pin header.

So I need a 3-pin to 4-pin header adapter so that the 4-pin fan connector can physically get to the 3-pin motherboard header.

Anyone know where I can get one in the UK?

  1. maybe you could bend the capacitor out of the way a little bit. They are movable, but be careful to not snap the connectors.
