3-pin case fan connector to 4-pin connector query Tags: Power Supplies Cases Fan Components Last response: July 1, 2012 4:36 PM in Components Share KP101 July 1, 2012 3:21:46 PM Hi there, I intend to purchase an Antec 302 case. It comes with 2 case fans and one of the fans have a 3-pin fan connector and the other fan has a 4-pin connector. My motherboard which is a P8Z77 V LX has 4-pin chassis connector port. I read that i need a 3-pin to 4-pin converter. Is that true? if so where can i purchase one from online? Thanks in advance, More about : pin case fan connector pin connector query KP101 July 1, 2012 4:36:03 PM Just discovered i may not need a converter based on what it states in this thread: Quote: You should be safe to connect a 3-pin to a 4-pin. As far as I am aware 4-pin connections are for fans with higher power consumption and fan control. You should be fine to have a pin remaining. http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/338644-10-connector... Can anyone tell me if this is correct? Thanks, Can't find your answer ? Ask !
