Can the Arctic F9 TC fan function like a normal 3-pin fan?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I somehow accidentally ordered the F9 TC fan from Amazon, when what I actually wanted was the PWM fan.

Now, I wish to know, can I get rid of the temp sensor and use the F9 fan as a regular 3-pin case fan? The temperature window for the temp sensor is too narrow for me and I set my own speed in the BIOS.

If it's not possible, I will have to get Amazon to take it back and send me the correct version.

Arctic F9 TC should idle about 500rpm up to 32c, then climb to 1800rpm at 38c

Where is the senor at?

You should be able to move the sensor to a place the air temp is rising slower and this will lower the speed

F9 TC will work down to 5v of power, so I would assume you can use variable voltage control.

is this used for CPU cooling or case cooling?
