Help!! Unsure About Fan Controller Plug

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have this fan controller and can't seem to get it working. The fans just use the regular 3 pin connectors but I can't figure out which connector the power uses. It uses 2 pin (which are larger) and I'm not sure what connector I use to plug it in? I've attached a photo to make hopefully make it easier for you guys to diagnose my problem.



Thank You

That is pretty strange, what is the model of this fan controller? Usually you just plug a molex right into the controller.. Did it come with an adapter?

Actually that looks like a molex would fit on it, using the +12/ground side of the molex

See this image, http://www.elektroda.pl/rtvforum/fil...molex_9192.jpg

That's my best guess (connect at your own risk), unless you have some documentation/model number that tells you otherwise.

It's a sunbeam extreme http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811995016.
Ya it's just half a molex,just connect the yellow and black side of a regular molex.

Are you missing the power cable? It's a 2 pin to 4 pin molex pass-through cable, AND is "notched" on the power side connector.
