Default Fan conestions

Hi all

Some of you might remember my thread about gettign a new case well i have decided to opt against this idea instead i bought two 80mm computer fans so i drilled a hole in the side of my pc and mounted the one then the other one i just stood up inside of the pc blowing air about so anyway my question is which colour wire coming from your psu is the 12v wire ive got red or yellow ps the fans have a 4 pin plug attached to them i attached it how it would allow me but it doesnt seem overly fast.
