  1. Only use the CPU fan connector on your motherboard for the fan on the heatsink. Don't disconnect it. All of your case fans need to plug into other fan connectors on your motherboard or if you don't have any more, then connect them straight to your powersupply. You might have to get adaptors to make it work, but do NOT leave your CPU without a fan.
  2. do you cean connect to to the acual psu or one of the cables on the psu(the phrpepherals cable i think molex they are called but if you mean molex connection it wont fit+ (idont know what i' type into the internetto fid one what would i am notvery knowlageale with computers just some of it i know) so do you now of any adaptors so it would fit? thanks

  4. Connect it to one of the cables on the psu. You might need an adaptor like this:

    But if you say it has 4 pins, it seems like you are trying to connect a CPU cooling fan instead of a regular case fan.
  5. thanks for that ut i can get a cabe like that with thepassthrough of the 3th wire( the blue one i sw isn't it where u control fan speed?
