CM megaflow 200mm 2 pin fan connector?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a 200mm CM megaflow red LED fan off ebay. It was taken from a case apparently. So I have connected it up to my case and plugged in its 3 pin connector and the fan seems to work as it should BUT the leds will not go on. There is also a 2pin female connector on the fan, would this be for the LEDs? If so, what cables do I need? Should I connect it to powersupply or motherboard?
Note: the female 2 pin connector is about 3cm long as well so will need a decently long cable to connect it to whereever.

Some advice will be appreciated, thanks!

This fan... from a Cooler Master HAF 922

The 2 pin wire lead coming off the fan is for LED, and designed for HAF 922 Front Panel LED ON/OFF switch. Not sure you want to connect that direct to anything more than 3 volts. Hopefully, someone with a HAF 922 case can confirm this.

Edit: it's 2 - 2.2V with 20mA current
