Molex to 3-pin adapter?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I bought a few Scythe Gentle Typhoons (high RPM versions, 4250rpm).
The site where I bought them from said that they come with 3-pin and 4-pin connectors.

They sure did, but the connector was molex for power and the 3-pin was used only for the RPM (for motherboard headers to read how fast the fan is spinning etc).

Well this is not what I wanted, because I wanted to control the fans using my Scythe Kaze Master fan control panel.

So this is what comes with the fans: fafafdfghfh.jpg

Will this adapter work so I can connect the molex to my 3-pin controlled fan control panel?

Well, yes, but it's kind of complicated for your needs. If you're up to a bit of re-wiring, you could grab three of these and just make the fan a 3-pin.

Yeah, well I fixed the problem without any new cables.

Just soldered female molex to male 3-pin and it works like a charm. Without the RPM info but who needs that anyway redface.gif
