Hi. I remember reading an article about doing a minor mod to a FOP38 so that you could use an 80mm fan.. probably on this site but I don't remember where it is, does anyone know where it is? Also, the 80mm fan I will be using is the kind which is suited for the power supply. There's a red and black wire on it. Would I be able to solder those wires onto a regular 3 pin-female fan connector? And would it be possible to add an extra wire (blue I'm thinking..) so that my mobo could monitor the RPM's the fan is making? Thanks.
