The yellow has 12 v. The red has 5 V. The black ones are ground, one for each.

Connect using the yellow and the red - not the blacks. This way you'll have 7 V!

Check my PRETTY picture attached, I think it says it all... the ones to the left is normal. The ones to the right is what you need to have 7 v.

I did the mod by moving the pins in the molex 3to 4pin adapter so I didn't have to crip anyting and it only took about 1min the temps on teh wbk38 are about 3degrees higher but max at 40C! do you think I should just put on a 80mm fan at 12v rather than a delta at 7v.

I love the sound of my hard drive!

Well the goal is the most CFM at the lowest sound, So, if a 80mm at 12v puts out more air and less noise than a Delta at 7v, then I would go for it.

Thankyou, OMG i've been looking to buy an expensive rheostat convertor for ages, but could never find it. This post has just solved everything.

The problem with this forum is people know a lot about overclocking but never talk about what they know w/o someone asking. I think this site should have more How To articles and stuff.

I'm glad my pretty picture actually helped some of you out! :) Sometimes things are easier to understand from a drawing, even if it only took a couple of minutes to make.

Anyone voting for that picture in the t-shirt contest say: Yay! :)
[2]Just so I don't upset any mod: The voting thing is just a JOKE! lol [/2]

Check out this site for some interesting schematics & projects (fanbus, switches w/leds & rheostats). He also sells the finished goods if you don't want the hassle.

Now I am not a big city lawyer, but don't you need a ground? Everyone says this works, but, I just wonder WHY it does?
