Case Front Intake Fan Question? Tags: Power Supplies Cases Fan Fan Controller Components Last response: April 21, 2012 12:37 PM in Components Share kalel786 April 20, 2012 3:05:10 PM Hi everyone. So basically I bought this fan: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EZcool-140mm-Fan-Super-Silent... It comes uses standard 4 pin molex. I have a NZXT Phantom full tower case, I bought that as an intake fan, if I use molex power, the LED will always be on, and I won't be able to use the fan controller. So is this what I need to convert it to 3 pin? So that I can use it with my fan controller? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-Pin-Molex-male-female-3-Pin... There's also this which is cheaper, so I'm wondering if it does the same thing? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Molex-4-Pin-Power-Cable-3-Pin... Thanks!

But are you sure it comes with a Molex plug only? Most fans come with an adapter to turn the 3-pin (to motherboard or fan controller) to a 4-pin Molex (to power supply). You are going the other way: 4-to-3. | Report abuse kalel786 April 20, 2012 10:33:57 PM foscooter said:Sure, on the 2nd link. But are you sure it comes with a Molex plug only?

So both of the adapters in the links are fine? It doesn't state if it includes it, I'm not going to wait for if to come then order an adapter, I wanna be able to get it all set up at once. | Report abuse kalel786 April 21, 2012 12:37:25 PM bump | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Case Front Intake Fan Question?> Related ressources: ForumNew HAF X front 230mm intake fan fried!!
