Re: Scythe Shuriken Rev. B SCSK-1100 4-pin on old 3-pin mobo

For the record: I ended up buying the 3-pin version of the fan from Scythe, and it worked like a charm..

Toughbook CF-T8 fan noise?

Hi all, I have been happily using a Toughbook CF-T5 for a few years, now it starts being a bit too slow, so I was thinking of getting a T8 but I noticed it has a fan (the T5 did not). Is there anyone who has a CF-T8 who can comment about its fan, is it noisy? does it does it switch on often? Any hin...

Re: Scythe Shuriken Rev. B SCSK-1100 4-pin on old 3-pin mobo

I'm sure the fan works (tested in a different computer with 4-pin header).

Did you find it out? I'm trying to install a 4-pin fan on an old mobo with 3-pin fan headers, I thoug...

Scythe Shuriken Rev. B SCSK-1100 4-pin on old 3-pin mobo?

Hi all, I'm trying to install a Scythe Shuriken Rev. B SCSK-1100 (4-pin female) on an old socket 478 motherboard, which has a 3-pin male connector. It should work afaik, the fan connector plastic also matches perfectly the mobo connector (leaving the 4th pin unconnected of course). Surprise surprise...
