hello,guys

i have a Rosewill 120mm case fan which has 3 pin connector and a molex 4 pin. when i plug the 3 pin connector to my motherboard sys_fan2, the fan does not work. and the 4 pin molex can not connect to my molex cables from psu cuz the header are same. so what should i do???

my mobo is gigabyte ga-970a-ud3
psu : antec 750 green

Connect the 4 pin molex to the 4 pin molex connector of the PSU.

I can clearly see that block is a passthrough, hold the thin end of that big block (We generically call them Molex plugs, not four pin) and plug your psu into the other end of that block,

that molex on there may be a passthrough block, see if you can plug the psu molex in the other side of it, if not there are adaptors all over

from psu to the 3pin and molex,

Thank you for B.a. man,
No, I am a bit confused on that one myself, the only thing I can think is that the wire is somehow damaged, or that your mobo's fan header is not working properly, do you have another 3pin fan to test the header?
