Case fan cables Tags: New Build Cases Fan Motherboards Cable Systems Last response: December 9, 2012 5:55 AM in Systems Share piejesu December 8, 2012 8:09:49 PM Hello, My case's fans have male 3-pin power connectors that look like this... http://usb.brando.com/prod_img/zoom/UPCSF024100_01_L.jp... I'm unable to find a place on the motherboard to plug them into. All the plug-ins on the motherboard are also male. Any help is appreciated. More about : case fan cables cklaubur a b V Motherboard December 8, 2012 8:31:27 PM Are you certain the connectors on the fans are male? Every fan I've seen has either female 3-pin, female 4-pin (PWM fans), or male 4-pin molex (hard drive/CD/DVD drive power) connectors. What is the specific model of the fans? Casey m 0 l piejesu December 8, 2012 8:37:32 PM Don't know the fan model. They came on the NZXT Phantom case. I assumed the connectors were male because they have pins instead of sockets. They look like these two on the left. http://www.crazypc.com/images/cables/pwm/connectorslarg... m 0 l Related resources PSU cables won't fit in the case? & fan questions - Forum Can't find where to plug in case fan cables!? - Forum Melted fan controller cord, now I need cables to connect case fans/PSU - Forum Cables too short for Case Fans. - Forum Case Fan Cable doesn't fit Motherboard Connectors. - Forum Can't find your answer ?
