BitFenix Prodigy - 3-Pin fans, how to connect?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Greetings,

Well i received my BitFenix Prodigy White chassis a few days ago, the case comes with 2x fans from BitFenix with 3-pins connectors. But there is no motherboard out there in mini-ITX size which supports 3pins only 2x 4pins. How am i suppose to make these following fans spin? Well, 1x 4pin goes for the CPU, then there is one left, wether i could connect a 3pin or not its not possible to have both fans running at once. This is a big mystery to me - either i miss something in my case packaging or BitFenix Prodigy is just a blabble product which should be the best case out there supporting mini-ITX but in my head this product really seems to be kinda useless?

Get a splitter and use both on the second 4 pin. It will fit.

A four pin is a three pin as well...

It's like USB 3.0 being compatible with USB 2.0...
