Hyper 6+ on 3 PIN Connector - [Socket 370]

Recommended Posts

Ohhhkay let me step back here.

By size I mean the physical dimensions of the cooler. The Hyper 6+ will not fit inside all cases. You need to check the dimensions of it on the product page and measure it up against the inside of your case to make sure it will fit.

Now THIS is a molex connector (masse = ground):

These power your hard-drives, CD-RWs, DVD-RWs etc. You can also use them to power fans, and many fans do indeed come with molex connectors. Alternatively, you could find a 3-pin to molex adaptor. Either way, you should be able to run the fan at full speed if it's plugged in this way.

EDIT: Haha knud, I think we both just googled the same image. Nice. 8)

A real big thanx...

It means one thing: ill buy Hyper 6+ and run it with FULL speed with a 3 PIN to Molex adaptor!!!

Thats what i want!!!

THX

Edit: i talked to a vendor where i bough my comp...

He says he have a 4 PIN adaptor (its for 3 PIN).

With this adapter he connects the fan, the PIN and the Power Supply...

Is it that?

THe fix for this is as follows:

You can short out the power line to the 4th unused line (the PWM line).

bend a paperclip or a staple and insert it into the top (where the cables insert into the plastic molex) and connect the power line to the 4th line.

I have done this on 2 Hyper6+ units. This will put the fan in full speed mode.

I'll look for the diagrams of this mod, but it works like a champ! The fan on the Hyper6+ becomes pretty loud though. I agree with the above post that the Socket370's did not put out enough heat to justify the Hyper6+ fan running full tilt.

I have mine on FX class hardward, and I actually removed the pin and let the fan run @ stock/low speed. No cooling issues to speak of.

I'm not overclocking or anything either, but if I was, then I could easily increase my fan to accomidate the OC using this trick.

HTH!!

edit: I used the "SEARCH" functionality of this forum (hint, hint) and found this thread:

Please note the post on Aug 6, it has a picture of what I am talking about.

Hate to bump this but I got this heatsink and I got the connectors pictured on the left.

Is it still possible to boost the speed with that kind of connector?

publically flog me... I have no idea what meds I was on when I posted my last response...

Hyper6+ should have been Hyper48... two completely different fans, and cooling units.

I have a hyper6+, but have not opened it yet. Apologies... I am a dork....
