Mostly, but these fans cannot run off of a normal pwm signal.

Connect the PWM labeled wire to the + wire and call it a 3-pin fan. Works for me, fully variable speed.

 

Correct-

 

The PWM wire does not work the same way a standard yellow PWM wire on most fans/PWM header pin on mobo's.

I had to sacrifice one but I did get it to work, thank you. Hopefully this thread will save anyone from sacrificing more of these cute fans in the future to find out how to power them  ;)

 

PS- These are loud as ****.
