    to the forums

    Does it not have a standard 3 or 4 pin connector on it?


    Or is it a normal 4pin Molex connector (one that would plugin to a hard drive/dvd drive/etc)



    For future reference, try to describe the issue in the title of the thread instead of just typing 'help me' so that it is easier to sort through the messages to find the issue.

    Ehh.. doesnt that fan need a WALL plug? Specs say 230v AC....If so, NOT POSSIBLE.

    Host the pictures at the site. I am unable to see them externally (potentially others as well).

    Judging by your pics that is a 230 volt fan and would be pluged directly to your wall socket. Running these off your power supply ...... I don't think so.

    That's really confusing. From what I can see, that's a standsrd American wall plug, but we use 120V AC here, 240V AC is used in Europe.

    Either way, there's no way to run that off your motherboard.

    Clearly thats a wall plug. Motherboards do not have that plug nor the power to support it. As mentioned, you will NOT be able to use that fan on your motherboard or PSU.

    The fan is designed to plug into a wall, not a computer.

    Do you have a 230V wired home (not sure where you live this is normally not a USA thing) with an outlet that accepts that type of plug?

    Then yes, it sounds like it should plugin to the wall.
