Just wondered if anyone had any info on them.Original question solved, thanks to all that helped
Hi everybody, could someone please help me with this because I'm a bit of a n00b when it comes to wires and cables :-\
I need to get a few adapters for some new fans I've ordered (Scythe GT AP-31's) and they only have 4-pin Molex connections, but I need to connect them to my fan controller. So I need some adapters that are 4-pin Molex >>>> 3-pin, so I can connect them to my fan controller and adjust the voltage to increase/decrease the rpm as and when I need to.
I found these but they only have 2 wires (1-Black & 1-Yellow) going from the 4-pin Molex to the 3-pin plug!
So can someone please help a n00b and tell me if this is the correct adapter and let me plug it straight into my fan controller and increase/decrease the rpm???
Really need a little help please,
long overdue im sure but they most certainly draw more. I am currently blowing my 1500w psu up over and over trying to quad sli some titans and while trying to cut power wherever I can I decided to reduce the speed of these fans the only way I can (via bios pwm) as I don't have a fan controller yet. They have a problem even spinning up without a certain amount of juice to them so I can only decrease their speed by what I would assume is 30% or so without them not working at all. Still this change has stopped my pc from shutting down during furmark except with the cards really really overclocked. Intrigued I set up the supernova power software and it fluctuates a good dozen or so watts constantly give or take in real time but best I can tell decreasing 6 AP31's by ~30% has reduced my power consumption by ATLEAST 50w. Do the math.
Wish their was somewhere else I could cut power. sigh
