I have purchased Silent Pro Gold 800W and it says it has these connectors


I think my current Dell XS 9100 has 3 pin connectors. Should I buy

Noctua NF-B9 Fan
or
Noctua NF-B9 PWM

Thanks in advance

Why do you need a new fan for your power supply?

Replacing the fan on your PSU will void the warranty.

I just realized the fan plugs into the motherboard. Do you know Erich one i would buy for the rear exhaust fan? Thanks for the replies

Need to know what case you are using so we can tell you what size to buy.

If your board has a 3-pin connection as you mentioned, then get the non-PWM version.

Lol I jut had to respond to this and how much I have learned in 3 months. I'm still trying to get rid of the dell and here is my build I just finished.

I just hooked up the Komodo GPU block and the extra 200mm radiator. My cooling system is

Reservoir > 1500 L/h Pump > 240mm Radiator > CPU > RAM> 200mm Radiator > 7970 > back to reservoir.

After upgrading the pump, 200mm rad, and adding the GPU my CPU tems have fallen alot. CPU used to idle around 50C now its 39C-42C. MY 7970 with stock cooler would also idle around 50C, now it idles around 29C. I also decided to get rid of that Ekoolant crap and go with distilled water with a kill coil.
