Any issue putting the CPU fan into a 4pin header? Tags: Heatsinks CPUs Overclocking Last response: December 22, 2012 7:28 PM in Overclocking Share cookybiscuit a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking December 22, 2012 6:31:08 PM I cant seem to be able to find a way of controlling my CPU fan speeds either through the BIOS or through software like Speedfan. I can however easily control the speeds of fans in PWM headers. Would there be any problems in doing this? Thanks.

However, connecting a 3-pin fan to a 4-pin PWM connector will not allow for PWM to work. It will just be a regular fan that you should be able to adjust to some degree in your BIOS.
