How do I plug a case fan into the CPU fan header?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just installed phase and BIOS keeps warning me of high temps (127 C) and that the CPU fan is failing so I thought if I plug a case fan into the CPU fan header it will calm down. But case fans are 3 pins while CPU fan is 4 pin, how should I plug it in?

You would have to splice it into a 3 pin connector, if you don't have 3 to 4 pin splitter. But, I wouldn't advice plugging anything over an 80mm fan into your mobo headers as it can screw up the mobo voltage.

you can just disable the fan warning in the bios using w/c thats what I did and you can also do that to you're temp problem if you want this is under the option "hardware monitor"
