louder higher RPM versioni was just wondering what my options were... there are just two wires connecting in the plug to the fan.. can I butcher a zalman fanmate and connect it in line off from the main PSU, or is that likely to blow.... what else is available.. cheap is good.. and I'd rather not have to build something to do it, i have no experience in that field and no equiipment....
My other question is that.. are all 120mm papst and panaflos using this large power connector or do the quieter slower RPM models come off the motherboard??
- u've got a few options but it depends on the rating of that fan u have
I had a look at the OCUK store that u were talking about and I say u should be okay the your fan seems to be the "Papst 4412FM 120mm Fan (4 pin) (FG-002-PA) " seems to be rated for 3.2W
u could butcher your zalman fan mate and put the molex connectors on it (The big plugs),..... another way is to use a rheostat inline with the device.
I'd have my doubts about running it off motherboard headers though
- I have a Thermaltake 120MM fan sitting here and it has 3 pin headers on it.. but everything I have and use usually get's 3 pin headers anyway cause I use a digidoc 5
