nvm, i threw out everything but the fan. How would I go about powering this type of fan? it comes with a two pin header that won't fit on my standard 3 pin to molex connector..

put the red wire to red wire.
black wire to black wire

and that should make it run 12v
make sure you ATLEAST take it up with electrical tape
sorry dont wanna say it will, cause its late and im tired

yellow and black should make it run at like 5v if i recall correctly.

the fan controller would just have a positive ( red ) and negative ( black ).
should also have 2 wires going to the fan. ( red and black again )

if you connected the ones from the fan controller that arnt going to the fan to molex power it should work
nvm its differnt, would have to see it all out lol. even though you threw it out

nite anyways sorry if didnt make sence
