Still cant get this going but am afraid to try that cable again unless incase its wrong ? Can anyone help me out ? Thanks
The reason you fried it is you had it plugged into the MB which has power and you also had it plugged into the Molex connectors which were powered by the psu. You basically had 2 power supply points plugged together. If you read my previous post, you will see you need the correct fan which goes on the cpu cooler, and only this fan is plugged into the MB cpu fan connection.
