Plugged a new front case fan....and it singed/melted.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I bought a 140mm Bitfenix pro yesterday and took the fan led cord, and used a 4 pin connector to the molex instead of the two pin that it came with. It singed and melted. NOW I currently have a sickleflow CM 120mm fan that only has one cord, that is for the power and LED. My question is, should I be worried about this new fan? It's ran all last night, and all day today and everything smells fine by the computer. It is currently hooked up to a 4 pin molex just to extend the reach so it can be plugged into the motherboard.
