Hello
I have a gigabyte 6850 HD graphics card, its not under warranty anymore. its cooling fans are almost dead and I'm looking for replacement, they are 2 pin fans.
i looked for replacement but I only found 3 pin fans (they are the same type of fans, the connecting pins are not the same.)
Are there any adapters of any kind that i can use to connect the 3 pin fans to my graphics card?
This is my current fans

As you can see they are the same type, but with different connectors.

Red and Black wires are already together in a side 2 pin, I believe you can just connect 2 of the 3 pins with just a simple cut off of the white plastic.

Hmmm okay.
Do you think it would be better to replace the stock cooling system with something better? Because I have used it for only a year and its already broken.
