Connecting fan (3 holes) to the mother (4 pins) HELP

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm sorry! didn't want to create 2 post, the one before is pretty similar, but i already said thanks and the problem was solved so noone was going to see that I added one more question:

See the screenshot, the mobo has 4 pins....but my fan conector has just 3 holes, is that ok? should I connect it there?

It will be perfectly fine, and operate as it should, the 3 pin fan has no pwm control, which is what the 4th pin is for.

you have an ROG mobo and you don't know whether it's safe to plug a 3 pin fan into a 4 pin header?

Sorry but your message makes no sense...my last computer has 6 years, I build it when I was 15 and it didn't have any cooler in the case more than 2 that has molex conectors, so I've never used this 3-4 pin connectors for a case fan, it was a 5kpl motherboard, didn't have much things at all, so I prefer to ask and learn before do something stupid.
So, before commenting something like "Kids these days" think twice..."kid".

Thank you for your amazingly helpful reply. I'm sure you will make be an amazing contribution to this forum.

A lot of the people who buy the high-end stuff have absolutely no clue about overclocking or how to use all the features. Deal with it.
