Hi, im trying to install a new HSF on my 256xt, and I noticed the fan it came with had a 3 prong cable, to fit the 3 prong plug on the card.....
I noticed the fan I am installing only has 2. Am I screwed?

I think not. One of them should be for speed, usually shown as a yellow wire.

Thats what it looks like. Though I dont know if it is a good idea using a fan intended for the pro series with the XT.
I'll know tomorrow, when I fire it up. Oh well, anything happens, back to compusa it goes!
Do the ends look the same? Does one just have one less wire, but the same number of pins? If they look like different ends do not try it!! I have seen the result, and it aint pretty. It's a dead short on mobo and video card. It's a system killer.
