antec truepower trio fan controller

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well I still don't quite understand what the fan 3 prong thing does on the antec Power supplies. Do they regulate the PS fan? and if i dont use it what happens then?

Also can put the connector into a fan controller?

The wire if you still don't know what im talking about is the black and blue one

If you don't use it it would probably let the thermal sensor control the fan or run at 100%. You should be able to plug it into a fan controller and have it work. It's a 3 or 4-pin standard fan plug right?

If it has a blue and black wire only like my antec then it is just to let the mobo monitor the power supply fan and make sure it is spinning properly.
