« on: May 29, 2003, 10:52:55 AM »

i have just brought two Akasa AK-170BL4BSC Speed controlled fans. there are loads of wires coming out of the PSU, but none of them have connectors on the ends :wtf: . How do i wire my fans to it? :-?

Sorry for the newbie question :idiot:

ok, if the connecters on the fans are 3 pin connecters then they plug onto the motherboard, otherwise you'll have to post a picture of the connecter.

if it is a 3 pin connecter and you don't have any spots on your motherboard, then you'll have to buy a 3 pin to molex adapter so you can power your fans off the PSU...

hope that helps.

ok, the connectors on the fan are 3 pin connectors. I have connected it to the J16(System Fan) socket on my Gigabyte GA-7DX mobo. I powered up but the fan didn't work. :thumbsdown:

There is another socket j15(power Fan) which is a 3 pin socket. Should i try this and see if it works? :-?

Buy a Sunbeam Rheobus v.2 and save yourself a headache.

Both the "System Fan" and the "Power Fan" are the same thing, just labeled differently.  Perhaps the fan is dead, or you have it plugged in backwards (although usually there is no way to plug a 3pin in wrong)  Its possible that your fan needs more power than the motherboard header can put out, so trying a 3pin to molex adapter may be the solution

You may want to do this.
It's called Fanbus
You may search for it or ask if you want more info.

That is a fanbus.  It basically lets you hook up bare wire ends to the 12 volt rail.  Not available through Maplins, but you can build one yourself without too much trouble.
