Hey guys, i upograded my computer from c2d to i5 last night and noticed that my fans on the antec 900 have female molex connectors, ive read that they have both however i dont remember seeing them, is this true, or do i need to buy (at least) a 3 way splitter for my PSU. I remember the ones on my antec case needing a male connector and i only have one of them spare on my psu.
Also im looking at getting OCZ 700W StealthXStream 2 psu as my old one is knackered... does anyone know if they have the 2 connectors required for my BFG 295GTX - i'd hope it does for £75 lol
I cant order off of the internet because of delivery times where i am, it's up to 2 weeks waiting list regardless of next day delivery so it's gonna be from a pc world store, (bartered price) so my options are limited.
I need 4 male molex connectors for all the fans though and i only have 3 female ones and 1 male one lol
im at work so cant give you accurate specs but basically i have:
*the above psu when the misus gets it me today*
ive bought a male to male 3 way splitter for my fans, that y cable doesnt look right for what i need o.O hmmm the fans have a female power thing i need a male power thing, i only have one spare so ive bought a male to male 3 way splitter, so i can plug that into a female one i have spare from my psu and plug the others into the fans
Lol sorry if im making it hard to understand... a male connector is the one that fits into the female connector to make the connection. The fan connector effectively has 4 holes and i need the connector with 4 conductors sticking out, so they fasten together.
Google Male Molex and Female Molex to see what i mean cos i cant link pics cos im at work lol
Again sorry for the confusion and i appreciate you trying to help me
well as far as i know the coolers should have both
all 6 coolers on my 1200 case are connected to each other and powered by one molex
the front side of the connector will fit in the rear of the other:-) hope this helps
