Okay, so this a big one, I bought this fan:
Silenx IXP7414B iXtrema Pro LED Fan - 120mm, 14dBA, 72CFM, Blue at TigerDirect.com
Now there's a major problem, I am going to post lots of pictures so you guys can understand.
The fan comes with this cable already pre-connected
That 3 pin cable can plug directly into the motherboard, okay no problem fan works. But I DON"T want to go that path, and I to use the molex converter it brings. Because my mobo only has 3 fan connecters.
That is the converter it came with the other end is molex, so yeah I plug in the cable that was pre atteached to that and plug it into my psu's 4 pin molex adapter.
That's the 4 pin molex, one end is 6 pin to the modular psu and the other end is female 4 pin molex.
I plugged it in and the fan did not work, then I went ahead and directly plugged into mobo then it worked.
I called my dad for some advice, as sometimes you fail to see problems, and other people can help
. He said it wasn't possible to do what I wanted to do:
If you can see there that's the converter which the original 3 pin plugs into, but notice there's only wires leading to 2 of 3 pins available. So he says there's no way that you can plug in 2 to a 3 pin. It needs to be 3 to 3 for example instead of 2 wires leading to 3 pins 3 pins leading to 3 wires.
So here's the thing
either A): It's factory broken, and that wire is missing, and my dad is correct.
Or B): I did something, as I don't really see I did, but you guys may see it.
So hopefully that was descriptive enough.
