How to wire this Silverstone fan? S1803212HN

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I removed it from my old HTPC case. Its a 180mm fan that was wired into a high-low switch. It has 3 other leads on the PCB and I'm not sure how to get it to work, without the switch.

I don't want to use the switch, because I'm trying to figure out how I can use it as a room fan redface.gif

I just stumbled upon the same problem. With the yellow and black control wires connected my fan draws 0.15A (a third of its rating) and runs at about 500rpm.

I have not been able to figure out anything else (= more rpm) - but I was to lazy to reconnect the switch to see what the fan initially did in the case (it was never connected because I don't really need a 180mm fan to cool a single SSD).

At least it works and I guess the 500rpm are enough for what I want to use it now...
